Joey Skaggs as Baba Wa Simba

Here’s a great video documenting some of Joey Skaggs‘ famous hoaxes, along with a hilarious in-depth look at a 1995 hoax where he fooled the UK media into believing he was a guy that ran “howling therapy” sessions.

Joey writes:

In 1995, Baba Wa Simba (aka Joey Skaggs), a new-age therapist, whose mission was to work with disenfranchised and troubled youth and heal the wounded animal within, visited his lion pride in London. The Word, a television show on the UK’s Channel 4, documented the visit and aired it March 3, 1995. The video of this visit has just been released online.
