I’ve previously mentioned my love for What We Do In the Shadows. One of the show’s actors, Mark Proksch (who you might also know from Better Call Saul) used to book himself on morning shows in the Midwest as a yo-yo champion who was going around to schools doing demonstrations to promote environmentalism. However, when interviewed, he just went into tangents about his divorce or family problems or whatever, and then failed to demonstrate any yo-yo-ing.
I love this sort of stuff so much. There’s nothing more fun than someone who is doing something bizarre purely to entertain themselves and maybe their friends. More here.
