In 2002, prankster Jamie Kennedy helped Oprah do something she'd never done before—give viewers hideous makeovers. Jamie played the part of an over-the-top Hollywood stylist and helped pull off one of the best practical jokes in Oprah Show history.
The makeover millions of viewers still remember involved Sue Ross, a suburban mom and grandma. Sue was hoping for a new haircolor and a few makeup tips, but she got a lot more than she bargained for. Using black eyeliner and white face paint, Jamie and his team transformed Sue into a dark queen of Goth!
Watch Jamie's hilarious makeover take shape.
"You can use this look when you pick up your grandkids from kindergarten," Jamie said with a straight face. "Twenty million people are going to see you on Oprah looking like this!"
When Sue's daughter Kerry saw her mom decked out in black leather and a cheetah-print cowgirl hat, she was speechless.
After a few minutes, Jamie let Sue and Kerry in on the joke. "I think you guys are fantastic," he said. "I also want to let you know my name is Jamie Kennedy, and you're part of Oprah Winfrey's hidden camera prank show."
