Jordan Burns MTV

| 11 comments

In 2003, Jordan, Jesse GO! co-host Jordan Morris was bored. So, he did what any normal college graduate would do to entertain himself -- he made up a complicated and absurd story in order to prank a prank show.

He told "Burned," a dating-based knockoff of "Punked," that his friend Hector had a one man show, which Hector performed in order to get girls. He also told them that he could get Hector to come to a party with him, where Hector would perform the monologue, then get "Burn'd."

It turned out Jordan's friend Hector couldn't come, so Jordan asked another friend, whose name wasn't even Hector, to stand in for him. Then he wrote the "one man show" for "Hector," corralled a few other friends into the operation, and, well, burned Burn'd.

It aired a month or two later, my aunt and uncle taped it for me, and this is the first time the prank has been ever been revealed.

Particularly enjoyable: Jordan's absurd flopping about when the "burn" is "revealed."

Surely one Jack Osbourne is enough for MTV.

Fuckin' weirdest thing ever. Amazing!

That's pretty incredible!

Has this ever been mentioned on any of the shows? I can't believe I didn't know about this- 'course I've never even heard of 'Burned' before.Most of it's just due to the editing, but this almost comes off as a style parody of an MTV dating show. This must happen to MTV all the time...

the guy playing "Hector" is Eddie Moure, a good high school friend. I think he is so fantastic in this. The performance of a lifetime.

This was so great- now I'm wondering how much of MTV is stuff like that.

Might be the first time I ever GROANED with laughter. I was struggling for air. Painful but so worth it.

Jordan's 360 degree spin move (during the big reveal) tipped over my lol bucket and now my toe-inbetweens are caked with dried chuckle.

jordan and everyone involved did an excellent job, but did anyone else feel like mtv's editing sucked 90% of the humor out of that monologue?

I agree; after a while it felt like I was watching a regular episode of this show.The "melted cheese" line is a good joke. MTV seemed to think it was six good jokes.

Who is watching the watchmen indeed.
