Nathan Fielder Has Another Text Message Prank that's Destroying Romantic Relationships This Time

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):

    How the hell is this comedy? Have random people post a misleading text and then laugh cruelly at the misfortune of others. Maybe his next ones should be "you're adopted" or "I tested positive for HIV."

      Don't be a bitch that is funny shit. who are you, the fuckin'do gooder savin' kittens out of trees and chastising folks for watching people fuck themselves up on YouTube? It's a joke you dunce. Save your pious bullshit opinion for someone who gives a fuck. Meanwhile let us sick and twisted folks enjoy a prank you fucking idiot. "I tested positive for HIV" uhhhhhhh prick

    lol. the last one.

  • zc

    the third one says 'Mom' …..

    Seriously, I don't understand why SS has such a hard-on for this guy. All his schtick sounds really mean.

  • steve l

    All apple users….

    So the 2 grams for $40 one was funny… but this one is just uncomfortable. None of these responses are remotely funny. In fact, most of these relationships sound like they're going to end tonight. Nothing like watching relationships melt down for "comedy."

      but it would be much better for the dudes who found out they girl had cheated to just go along and never know that rite??? That wd be soooo much better for the people getting shitty news, it's not what was said that is shitty, it's what these people have actually done to their partners, if i did this and my partner reacted like that, i'd be glad i found out. honestly if u hippy types had your way, everything in the world would be grey, bland and boring. And just a thought, isn't it a little hypocritical to like a joke about buying drugs, but then be upset enough to comment on a joke about relationships. The key to a sense of humor, is having one!!

  • Thom

    If you didn't laugh at this then you don't have a sense of humor. Plus, if your worried about a relationship where the people cheated on each other lasting, then you should reevaluate your sense of a relationships. Relationships are built on trust and should be able to survive this joke.

    • Jeseta

      'Relationships are built on trust' Like trusting that someone isn't going to play a mean prank on you? I totally agree.

  • Stu

    About as funny as the Stanford prison experiment.

  • horryshet

    No one is going to believe me ever, but I made up truth or anal a week ago as a joke.

    • jefferson

      honestly, not a single person knows or cares about what that is.

  • sam

    I love this. I have been doing this lately! Its social experiements and its amazing ^_^

  • John

    This is a great way to find out if your significant other is cheating as well.
