MTV and mobile video platform Quibi are teaming up to bring back our favorite pranking show, Punk’d. Chance the Rapper will be taking over Ashton Kutcher’s role of host, and the reboot promises plenty of fun mischief that can’t be missed.
“Oh I f—ed Offset up, yo … He was heated. But that’s my guy,” Chance told Billboard at the 2020 Grammy awards. “Again, like everybody’s cool. It’s a fun show. We got a awesome crew that works on it…and we just try and go bigger and bigger every time.”
In honor of the reboot, we’ve taken a look back on the original 10 seasons of Punk’d, which tricked a number of today’s biggest music stars, including Drake, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and more.
See below for the nine best musician Punk’d episodes.
In 2003, Queen Bey thought she was invited to a charity holiday fundraiser for children. She then is then tricked into thinking she knocked down the giant Christmas tree when trying to put the star on top. To make it worse, a kid in the front row incessantly shouts at her that she “ruined Christmas.”
Watch it here.
2. Lindsay Lohan
In the same episode as Bey’s, Lohan and her assistant are riding in a limo whose driver’s wife about to have a baby. He stops at a gas station, and a group of people take the car. When the driver returns, he blames the stolen car and missing his child’s birth on the songstress.
3. Justin Timberlake
JT quite literally cries a river when everything he owns (including his dogs) are repossessed when he’s told that he owed $900,000 in back taxes. Spot Dax Shepard as one of the faux US agents in the episode here.
4. Miley Cyrus
Justin Bieber executed the ol’ “switcharoo” on Miley Cyrus, who thought she was going to be pranking the “Love Yourself” singer. Instead, Bieber gets into a violent fight with a bunch of rude skater boys, and Cyrus goes to break up the madness. When she arrives on the scene, she finds out she’s the one being punk’d.
5. Taylor Swift
Bieber pulled yet another prank on a young Taylor Swift, who gets invited to the “Sorry” crooner’s Malibu beach-house. He pressures TSwift to and help try out some questionable fireworks, and she ends up thinking they’ve set a yacht on fire and ruined a wedding.
6. Hilary Duff
A 16-year-old Duff gets a driving lesson from BJ Novak, whose questionable driving strategies (a.k.a a middle finger) lead to a carjacking, which is blamed on the former Disney starlet.
Watch it here.
Drizzy thinks he’s heading to meet the Vice President when he gets picked up by some faux Secret Service agents. They get in the car and deal with a pretty severe earthquake in the parking garage. Things quickly escalate into chaos.
8. Joe Jonas
You can’t punk Joe Jonas! Glee‘s Heather Morris tried her best to fool the singer into thinking he was pulled into a house robbery, but Jonas noticed the camera in the car outside. When the security officer asked Jonas what happened, he slyly replied, “I came to this house to get punk’d, and you guys did a pretty good job.”
9. Demi Lovato
Nick Cannon, along with All Time Low, fool the young songstress into thinking she saw a ghost in her recording studio.
