It’s confession time. Have you ever belted out a tune when you thought you were alone? Maybe in your car pretending you are talking on a hands-free cellular phone or in the shower where anyone can sound like Steven Tyler or Beyoncé. How about this…Would you sing a song at a gas station if a man’s voice asked you to do so through a speaker at the gas pump panel? Well one man did and it landed him a spot on the Tonight Show.
The Tonight Show pranksters were behind the stunt that ended up entertaining millions in an NBC studio, but the man who stepped up and sang Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” in the middle of a suburban gas station, while his wife howled with laughter, had no idea it was a prank.
Then to top it off, when asked by the man in the gas pump for a duet, his wife dressed in baggy sweatpants and a bandana got out of the car and sang a pitch perfect “Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics. The two-way camera mounted in the gas pump, along with cameras surrounding the car, videotaped the whole scene as the two were prompted to sing more. Jay Leno was so impressed that he invited the couple on his show. He said it was rare to see a couple so happy together.
Enjoy Your Weekend
