Taylor Swift. (Ringo, PacificCoastNews.com)Justin Bieber. (CPA/ PacificCoastNews.com)Who can forget Ashton Kutcher's "Punk'd"? After all, it was the show that made Justin Timberlake cry and Beyonce think she ruined Christmas for underprivileged kids. Now, five years after it went off the air, MTV is revamping the program — this time, without Kutcher as the main jokester (still, he remains the executive producer). Instead, celebs like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Kelly Osbourne prank their own famous friends, Taylor Swift and Khloe Kardashian respectively, in the ninth season, beginning March 29.
In the premiere episode, Bieber pulls a fast one on Swift when he makes her think she ruined someone's wedding. "She's the sweetest girl ever," the 18-year-old singer says as he and the "Punk'd" team plan their scheme in an online preview. Bieber and the country singer, 22, are hanging out on a boat when he tells her to push a button to launch a firework over the water, but it instead lights up a nearby yacht, where a wedding is taking place — and the bride and groom go overboard. "This is completely not OK," Swift yells as she looks on in horror. That Bieber, he's such a prankster!
As for Kardashian, Cyrus and Osbourne set her up so Khloe ends up in a restaurant sitting near a man who has an accident while zipping up his pants — and she must assist him in getting free. "You need to lay down or you might lose your testicles," the reality star warns him, while she's on the phone with 911. Sounds hilarious, huh?
In another upcoming episode, Hayden Panettiere, who was "Punk'd" years when the wife of a male fan accused her of flirting with her husband, gets her revenge. And fans of the original will be in for a treat when hilarious "Parenthood" star Dax Shepherd makes a return to the show that launched his career to set up an unsuspecting friend.
