Carson Daly Gets Brainwashed

Carson Daly sure knows how to butter up his guests. In a recent interview with little-loved street artist Mr. Brainwash, the former MTV veejay lead off with this: “If you ask anybody, without blinking an eye, who’s the most recognizable street artist in the world they’re going to say you.” Wow, did he actually just say that? And then just when you wanted to express utter contempt for his profound ignorance, he piles it on even further with an even stupider follow up: “I mean, define street art. It sounds awesome. Is it legal?”
