Henry DiCarlo, LA Weatherman, Pranked Into Saying 'Happy Bday Hugh Janus' On Live TV (VIDEO)

An LA prankster pulled off a classic Bart Simpson stunt on a Los Angeles weatherman Friday. KTLA weatherman Henry DiCarlo read right through submitted birthday shout-outs without thinking -- including one for "Hugh Janus."

Just like Moe, the "Simpsons" bartender, DiCarlo was clueless and confused when one of the anchors started busting up laughing.

"I think it was one of those trick names and you fell for it," the anchor said through uncontrollable giggling.

"Oh, I totally fell for it, didn't I? I think you're right. … Wow, I got punked," DiCarlo said, letting loose with laughter.

"Hopefully there's not a 10-year-old really with that name out there," he added.

We really hope not as well. Thank you, live television.

DiCarlo, of course, became one of our favorite local weatherman after throwing this hissy fit on live TV in 2011.
