Sanjaya claims to be a character created by an RISD art student

Trying to squeeze another few milliseconds out of his 15 minutes, which expired weeks ago, Sanjaya Malakar now says/jokes that he’s an art student at RISD and that “Sanjaya Malakar” is a persona he created.

“For the past five months, I’ve assumed the role of a character I created named Sanjaya Malakar,” he says in the video. Sanjaya–and it’s definitely him, or the world’s best actor–claims to he’s actually Bill Vendall, “a 25-year-old industrial design student at RISD,” and says “the character was part of a larger art installation for my thesis program.”

However, since Sanjaya himself is a terrible actor, it doesn’t quite work. He can hardly keep a straight face when saying nonsense such as, “How you could look at this … and not see it as a symbol for the self-referencing nature of progressive evolution?”

Defamer has the full video and calls this Sanjaya’s “new campaign to rape the minds of an American public he hasn’t been able to brain-diddle on a mass scale since his shocking Idol dismissal.” Exactly.
