Lester Kiewit interviews Barbara Friedman about this and other trending stories from around the web.

It really is hysterical… It’s been viewed 18.5 million times! … What a performance! … Would you ever pretend to faint so you can get out of something you did wrong? … Quite bad acting… What extremes would you go to?

A video of Nigerian official Daniel Pondei faking fainting while being grilled in Parliament about corruption has resurfaced and is now making its way across the world.

The video of the incident, posted on the weekend, has garnered 18.5 million views so far.
