Back in the days when Jay Leno hosted the “Tonight Show,” a recurring prank became a favorite of viewers across the country; it was called “Pumpcast News.”
During a “Pumpcast News” segment, actor Tim Stack would play a news anchor who would try to get unsuspecting customers at gas stations to sing. The bit always started with Tim’s face appearing on a screen in a gas station. What followed was always sure to be hilarious, but one couple– Will and Monifa– went down in history as the greatest “Pumpcast News” participants ever!
In the video below, Will steps up to a gas pump to gas up his car when he’s startled by a voice. He’s stunned to realize the “news anchor” on screen is talking to him, but when Tim Stack asks Will to sing, Will doesn’t back away from the challenge and quickly picks Bon Jovi’s “Living on a Prayer.”
