The Jimmy Kimmel Live host told viewers to tweet, "OMG, Tracy Morgan just passed out on stage at the Emmys, turn ABC on now!"

And to get Twitter users to believe the prank, Kimmel had Morgan lie down on stage. "Okay, hold my nunchucks," Morgan told the host while taking actual nunchucks out of his sparkly tuxedo coat before sprawling out on the floor.

"Just lie there for about 10 minutes or so, and when people tune in they'll see this on the stage," Kimmel explained.
