For fans of MTV, there is no reality show more Millennial than “Catfish,” where naive young adults seek the help of host Nev Schulman to track down people they are in online relationships with, but who they have never met. The show takes itself very seriously. Amy Schumer does not.
Schumer’s “Inside Amy Schumer” parody sketch, “Katfish,” has her questioning whether the Jake Gyllenhaal she met in a ferret fanatics chatroom is the Hollywood heartthrob himself, all the while seeming pretty eager to get her 15 minutes of fame on MTV.
“He’s been telling me that he loves me since week one but I’m pretty sure I’m being catfished,” Schumer said, showing a photo of Gyllenhaal. “He just messaged me and he said you are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.”
Turns out Gyllenhaal is for real — and dreamy even while holding a ferret — and Schumer was the one who catfished him.
Watch the hilarious video below:
P.S.- Can we take a moment and talk about the fact that Gyllenhaal is basically Prince Eric from “The Little Mermaid.”
