    Hilarious! And fortunately nothing like this could ever happen in real life.

    I was hoping instead of “No One” He would have said “Han Solo” or something to bring the Star Wars reference full circle. If you’re gonna invoke Chewy and all…

    Aw, poor Louis can’t catch a darn break!

    This took me a second to process. Definitely a slow-building sort of hilarity. Very well done.

      He was faking the messages so his friends would think he had a girlfriend (see how he’s tapping for *both* sides of the conversation).
      Fortunately, they found out how he did it before he made the claim, so he was saved.
      Narrow escape => funny.

    At first, I thought those “taps” were “faps.”
