Jeff Gordon showed up at Wednesday night's Country Music Awards, and he was in fine form. Problem is, Brad Paisley was even better.
Gordon appeared as "Brad Paisley" as co-host Carrie Underwood told the crowd about the dangers of "identity theft." Right then, the real Paisley walked out, and the following exchange ensued:
Paisley: Jeff, what do you think you're doing?
Gordon: I'm not Jeff Gordon. I'm Brad Paisley.
Paisley: All right, prove it. Sing something right now.
Gordon: Come on, man. Everybody knows Brad Paisley lip-syncs.
Oh! Burn! Well, in a scripted awards-show teleprompter kind of way, at least. Anyway, Paisley landed the haymaker:
Paisley: I'll make you a deal. You give me the keys to the 48 car, you can stay.
Gordon: I drive the 24 car.
Paisley: I know.
Below, the full video of the appearance. Enjoy.
