Jimmy Kimmel tricked some people on the streets of Hollywood into believing that Kid Rock won a Michigan Senate seat in his reoccurring "Lie Witness News" segment on Tuesday night's show (Nov. 6). The hell raising rap-rocker had announced he would run for Senate in 2017 as a publicity stunt — so Kimmel begged the question, "what if he had?"

Kimmel’s team showed viewers a fake CNN news report in which 47-year-old Rock gave a “victory speech” created using footage from one of his concerts. They also confused people by telling them that Rock planned to lower the scratch-off ticket age to 10, had soared to victory using the slogan, “Smell my fingers, no new taxes” and wanted to legalize and tax crystal meth.

The interviewer closed the segment by having people look at the camera and address Kid Rock by using a humorous fake non-stage-name Kimmel's team made up for him.
