|Funny or Die's Manti Te'o sketch|
have decided to weigh in on the Manti Te’o fiasco, in their own hilarious way and have been presenting videos of the Notre Dame linebacker. Beginning with an eHarmony ad and now a parody of the catfish trailer.
The Notre Dame linebacker hit the news earlier this week when it was revealed that his late girlfriend never existed, with Te’o claiming he was a victim of an elaborate hoax.
Now, Funny or Die has uploaded a video with Te'o (Eugene Cordero) gushing about his relationship with Lennay Kekua, reports Digital Spy.
“I hate fake people. They’re just so…it’s like they’re not there when you’re talking to them. But it’s different with Lennay,” says Eugene Cordero portraying Te’o, as the camera cuts to a two shot of him and an empty seat on the couch, according to EW.com.
