So there is a thing called scambaiting. What happens is there are a few people that when contacted for scams (think nigerian 419 scams) they basically lead these people along. Sometimes the exchanges can go on for months or even a year. They waste the scammers time so they don't spend that time trying to actually scam people.

Anyway, so the scam baiters ask them to do ridiculous things as 'proof' they are who they say they are. Here is a link for some more pics like this and they also have stories on that site

Last week I read one that was probably 6 or 7 pages long and the whole exchange took place over the course of like 1y4m and got the scammer to send the baiter a wood carving bust of said baiter, put up a billboard, do the parrot sketch from monty python and then had him talk to a 'detective'. It's a long read but skim through it there is a lot of gold in it.

At the end of the story is the video of them doing the sketch (which I thought about submitting but the backstory was long and some certain users don't appreciate things like this and would watch and say 'this is stupid - downvote')

Also some guy did an "Ask me anything" on reddit, which is where I saw the story linked originally

I've done some scambaits in my time. Now I just tell them that in order to prove their sincerity, they need to email me a photo of their tits or GTFO.
