Watch The Great Hip Hop Hoax

"Californian hip-hop duo Silibil n' Brains were going to be massive. No one knew the pair were really two students from Scotland, with fake US accents and made up identities."

What difference does an accent make? When Scottish rappers Silibil n’ Brains reinvent themselves as traditional California homebodies and sign to Sony records no one could guess the role the deception took. Adopting fake names, fake accents and new personas is easy when money, fame and fortune is on the line, but after time the pair find the scam takes more than just stereotypes to pull off a major scheme. While they succeed in duping the executives and the public they’re never able to fool themselves into forgetting who they really are.
