Nathan Fielder, star of Comedy Central’s Nathan For You, gained a lot of media attention last month when he asked his Twitter followers to “mistakenly” send a text about a drug deal to their parents. He’s at it again with a new Twitter “experiment” aimed to ruin people’s romantic relationships instead this time around. Yesterday, Fielder tweeted, “Experiment: text the person ur dating “I haven’t been fully honest with you” then dont reply to them for 1 hr (& tweet pic of thr response),” and he already has dozens of followers who listened to what he said. Fielder had another one of these prior to the drug one, in which he told his followers to ask their parents about dollar store condoms. These Twitter pranks are going to make for one fun episode of Nathan For You next season, if this turns out to be for the show and not just how Nathan Fielder kills time.
Check out a collection of the best responses to this experiment, which skew closer to heartbreaking than funny, below (via Uproxx):
