Kelly Fools Regis With Fake Firefly (VIDEO)

Kelly Ripa said Friday on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) that she had done a thoughtful thing for co-host Regis Philbin. She said she had caught a firefly for him in her backyard, and even had the studio lights dimmed so she could show him the critter trapped in a jar. But it turned out to be all lies.
Philbin was suspicious when the firefly shone its green light. He said he'd never seen one like that and asked if anyone in the audience had. "He's turned on by you, what can I say," said Ripa. But even when he called for a close-up with the lights on, Philbin didn't realize he was holding a jar with a fake firefly. "Look at this guy," he said. "He's really interesting. Can you see him here close up? He knows what's going on. 'Hi, Regis, how ya doing?' he's saying."
That's when Ripa let him off the hook and revealed it was a battery-operated firefly with an LED light you can buy for $14.95, if you're intent on fooling your friends into thinking you have a firefly and have fifteen bucks to spend on the mission.
