Westbrook impersonator pranks SportsCenter


Howard Stern disciples have gotten the best of them and now "SportsCenter's" Scott Van Pelt can be added to the list of victims.

An impersonator, the famed Captain Janks, got on the air last night in a phone interview posing as Brian Westbrook. Janks confirmed that it was him when he called into Stern's show this morning.

He was only on for a few moments before the "interview" ended with the line, "I have nothing but respect for Coach Andy Reid and I look forward to a future of worshiping the prostate of Howard Stern." (Video is below.)

After an awkward moment, Van Pelt seemed to take it in relative stride, even waving and saying, "Hi, YouTube."
