Drake Gets Punk’d By Ashton Kutcher
Yep, over the past year or so, Punk’d has stormed back onto the scene after years of absence and I must say it has been entertaining to see some of the newest A-listers get duped before our very eyes but, it’s nothing like when the show first aired in 2003. I remember Justin Timberlake getting his home reposed and him asking why his dog was being taken, Kanye West running like a fugitive and Beyonce’ killing Christmas for the kids on Punk’d like it was yesterday… and for your viewing pleasure I’ve added links to said videos. “You Can Thank Me Later!” For the updated version though, MTV brought in a new host with Justin Bieber and several other celebrity guest hosts to give the show a different vibe which was cool but the show ended up lacking a lot of its original luster and uniqueness.
So, what better way could you think of to bring some of that freshness back then to put one of the shows originators back in the front seat? Yep, Ashton Kutcher decides to jump back in to take on one of today’s stars who has been YOLOing his ass off over the last couple years lol, Drizzy Drake.
This episode has Drake thinking he is being taken to see the Vice President by secret service agents and during a routine security check in a parking deck a massive earthquake sends Drake and his partner’s heart to the bottom of their stomachs and gives Punk’d one of its best pranks to date! The setup, the timing and the look on Drake’s face when he sees an expecting mother get tasered by her boyfriend has all the makings of what I remember that made this show a must watch back in the day and is what made it a breakout success in the first place.
I wouldnt be surprised if we start seeing Ashton host more of the shows again from here on out. Check out the video and let me know what you think!
