How stupid can you get?

For those of you who who are unaware of the British Channel 4 show, Space Cadets, it's a reality TV show that has successfully managed to trick contestants into thinking they have been launched into space.

Channel 4’s "cosmonauts" are convinced they are in space and gazing down at Planet Earth.

The reality show contestants spent their first night on board Earth Orbiter One after "launching" on Monday.

Producers delayed showing the unwitting Space Cadets contestants a glimpse of the world because a stray moth blocked part of the view.

But with the creature out of the way, actor Charlie Skelton, Paul French, Billy Jackson and Keri Hassett were finally shown the view outside their spaceship.

Paul, a plasterer from Bristol, exclaimed of the Imax screen: "It’s the world!", while Billy, a recruitment consultant, was also convinced, saying: "You can see land on there."

"All the problems in the world just seem... minor," the 26-year-old added.

Billy, 25, a semi-pro footballer, later added: "You know, it doesn’t seem real... I know it’s real, but it doesn’t seem it."

Oh man. How dumb are these people? Seriously?!

I'm telling you an Irish person would never be fooled by this. We're cynical by nature and I'm confident that an Irish person would rumble such a plan.

Producer: "We're taking you to Russia and in a matter of weeks you'l be in space and we're going to show it live on national televeision."

Irishman: "Ah would ya g'way outta that!"

Brits though eh?
