Hilarious Emily Blunt Fake Lip Reading Video From Met Gala Viewed 13M Times

Emily Blunt's eye-catching appearance at the Met Gala has been given a hilarious new lease of life thanks to a new viral video offering up a fake lip reading of her time on the red carpet.

The comedy clip was posted to TikTok by kysthalimit where it quickly found an audience among fans of all things funny from the world of celebrity, racking up more than 13 million views at the time of writing.

In the video, a woman performs a spot-on fake lip reading of Blunt posing in front of photographers at the New York event. The clip can be viewed here.

To the uninitiated, a fake or bad lip reading refers to a clip where the producer intentionally poorly lip-reads the words of a character or person on a video clip for comedic effect.

In this case, while much of what the fake lip reader imagines Blunt is saying is probably spot on, it's what she imagines her saying the rest of the time that makes the clip so amusing.

From telling a member of staff at the event "I hate you" to her imitating the sound of cameras with a "pew, pew, pew" and finishing things off with a guttural laugh, the fact that the original poster maintains a believable English accent throughout the skit only adds to the comedic effect.

Fans have flocked to the comments section to talk about kysthalimit's impressive efforts.

"Oh I can't breathe," SelmaNillaNYC wrote. "So you're telling me she didn't say any of this?" whydiddarwindle asked. "The laugh is killing me so British," fakeandgaylmao added.

The video is one of several fake lip readings posted to TikTok by kysthalimit lampooning stars as they arrive on the Met Gala red carpet.

In another clip which has amassed 2 million views, Jennifer Hudson's arrival is spoof while there are equally hilarious clips involving Timothee Chalamet, Kim Kardashian, Frank Ocean and rapper Saweetie.

Having popped up on TikTok just a few days ago, the account already has 112,600 followers and 3.5 million likes with fans flocking to say how much they have enjoyed the comedy clips.

One user, hwag86, commented: "these TikToks are the only thing keeping me laughing the past couple of days, thank you."

Responding to the comment kysthalimit wrote: "I'm glad I can make your day a little brighter."

In a separate post, kysthalimit thanked fans for showing appreciation for her videos and promised "there will be more to come" in the future.

Newsweek has contacted kysthalimit and Emily Blunt's representatives for comment.

A highlight of the celebrity social calendar, much of the discussion following this year's Met Gala has been dominated by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's "Tax the Rich" dress.

Rihanna's late arrival turned plenty of heads, as did a series of striking outfits that arguably ignored the theme of the event.
