‘The Royals’ Fools Internet with Naked Man Viral Video


A viral video of a nude man escaping from a window at Buckingham Palace has been exposed as a stunt for Elizabeth Hurley’s new TV series The Royals.

Footage of the naked man climbing out of a window using bed sheets and ultimately falling on the grounds at the royal residence surfaced on YouTube last Friday, and it has since garnered more than one million views.

But it has now been revealed that the video was actually a hoax, and part of a campaign to promote the new series, which centers around the lives of a modern-day fictional British royal family, with Hurley as the Queen.

You can watch the man escape in all his naked glory below:

The Royals premieres on E! Sunday March 15th.

This series seems like it could be a decent replacement for the Gossip Girl-sized hole in your heart. Let us know if you plan on checking it out in the comments below.
