Who Tweeted? Website Tests Fans' Ability To Tell Real Diplo From Fake Diplo Account
Who tweeted “some producers really need to collab with a damn bar of soap?” Or what about “Doing the nae nae to a car alarm?” Will the real tweeting Diplo please stand up?
We'll give you guys a hint: That first one was fake Diplo, a.k.a. James Van Der Beek, a.k.a. Diplo in Viceland's new hilarious scripted show What Would Diplo Do? The second one was a real, bonafide Diplo tweet. Because duh.
The fake Diplo twitter account, @_diplo_, has become a huge success with dance music fans. Van Der Beek is truly a gifted actor. He's really gotten into the mind of the Mad Decent master, the “Original Don” of Major Lazer, that “random white dude be everywhere.” When he tweeted “i technically have 2 grammy's but thats a great point mozart has literally none,” he was channeling pure, distilled, alkaline Wesley Pentz vibes.
So, how well do you know Diplo? Is you a hater? Whatever, haters are followers, too. Or maybe you're close to a day one. You've got to test yourself to find out.
