49 Hoaxes People Actually Believed - mental_floss on YouTube (Ep.12)

Follow
Mental Floss

Hoaxes, hoaxes, and more hoaxes that people actually believed.

Weird hoaxes, unbelievable hoaxes, and strange hoaxes that you won't believe anyone bought.

The List Show is a weekly show hosted by John Green, where knowledge junkies get their fix of trivia-tastic information. This week, John looks at some of history's greatest hoaxes including "Balloon Boy" (the boy, by the way is now in a metal band), "Lonelygirl15" and "War of the Worlds" (you didn't think we could do an episode on hoaxes and NOT include it, did you?).
