The glory days of Punk’d may be long gone (well, since the early 2000s) but Ashton Kutcher still has footage from the MTV prank series that sounds like Internet gold.
During an appearance on James Corden’s The Late Late Show, the Punk’d co-creator recalled an unaired episode where they tried to trick rapper Drake.
“We punked Drake and created an earthquake inside of a parking garage,” he recalled. “He was in the car, and we started rattling the car. He jumped in his buddy’s lap and he like ‘fetaled up.’ He like ‘Canadian fetaled up’ into his buddy’s lap.” Kutcher then said dejectedly, “Then we had to cut that out.” The Drake episode aired in 2012 during Punk’d season 9.
Fellow guest and Kutcher’s former That 70’s Show co-star Danny Masterson offered this warning: “I would say for everybody who’s been punked, don’t actually piss [Ashton] off because the footage that doesn’t make it on is incriminating to say the least.”
Kutcher also shared a “wonderful story” about a “very well-respected” hip-hop artist whom he wouldn’t name, where they tried to stop his private plane on the tarmac and sent a guy on the aircraft to jokingly find a suspicious package, loaded with (wait for it) puppies. The actor said, “I literally ran after this guy for two miles to calm him down and he was like, ‘That ain’t even funny’.”
Billboard has reached out to Drake’s rep for comment.
