Video: Already bored with Real World: Brooklyn? Check out Westword's version of reality instead

The latest installment of MTV's Real World premiered on Wednesday, this time bringing eight annoying young strangers together in Brooklyn. New York is cool and all, but can the show really top the scandalous plotlines seen in the 2006 season set in Denver's LoDo?

One thing is sure: No one has has yet topped the greatest reality-show prank ever perpetrated on this celebrity-starved city, Westword's "Get Real" stunt. To this day, I consider the article and accompanying video (narrated by Adam Cayton-Holland) to be the pinnacle of my career as a fake television producer. -- Jared Jacang Maher
