Earlier this year, at the Time 100 Gala, Amy Schumer successfully outed Kanye West and Kim Kardashian as the world’s two most influential-yet-apparently-humorless citizens. Asked about the incident in which she flung herself at the feet of an unamused Kimye on the red carpet, Schumer explained the prank's origins to Graham Norton.
You know when you’re doing interviews, and the person sees someone more important behind you? It’s like being at a party and there’s a hotter girl behind you, and they just want you to drop dead. So I saw the reporter do that, and all the reporters were going crazy, and it was Kim and Kanye, just standing there, owning it, just being short and important. And I think falling is the funniest thing, so I just took a dive in front of them and pretended like I fell.
The stunt also provided a great photo op. “I look like a Pantene ad!” Schumer said of a very flattering picture of herself crawling at an unsmiling Kimye’s feet. “I lucked out. A boob could have fallen out.” Watch the full video above.
