Drake, Kim Kardashian Get ‘Punk’d’ Before MTV Movie Awards
It’s been years since Ashton Kutcher donned his trucker hat and pranked some of the world’s biggest stars on the hit MTV show “Punk’d.” But last night, before the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, the king of pranks pulled his trucker hat out of the vault and pulled two of his biggest pranks to date, punking Drake and Kim Kardashian.
For the first prank, Kutcher set out to get Drake, setting up an elaborate prank in which Drake would be led to believe he was going to meet the vice president.
But before his White House dreams come true, Drake finds himself in parking garage and in for the scare of his life as Kutcher puts the rap star in an earthquake scenario.
“We’re gonna shake things up for Drake a bit,” Kutcher said. “I highly anticipate Drake urinating; he might scream a little bit.”
While in the parking garage with the “Secret Service,” the car begins to shake, sending Drake into an awful fright. And things get worse as a random frightened person gets in the car and Drake gets into a screaming match with a couple.
And it all goes downhill when the woman goes into labor and another shock wave rocks the car, nearly causing the “Take Care” rapper to burst into tears.
But Drake’s nightmare comes to an end when Kutcher pops out and picks him up for a hug.
“Yo, that s–t’s no joke. So we don’t get to meet the vice president? I called my mom and everything!’ he told Ashton.
Afterward he confessed, “I said very early on in my career that this is such a sign of feeling like you really accomplished something when Ashton decides to punk [you], so today is a semi-feeling of accomplishment, but at the same time, f–k you! I do not appreciate that at all!”
Next up on Kutcher’s list was Kardashian, and for her prank, Kutcher sets up an explosive run-in with a sticky-fingered fan.
While Kardashian is at a gas station with her sister, Kourtney’s, boyfriend, Scott Disick, the two are approached by a fan who takes a photo with them.
But when Disick gets back in his car, he realizes his wallet is missing and chases after the fan, but mistakenly leaves the gas nozzle in his car. Of course, the car explodes setting off a fire that destroys other cars as well.
A man shouts at Disick for causing the explosion and the cops arrive and put him in handcuffs as Kardashian watches in utter shock.
After Kardashian discovers the wallet, Kutcher pops out, puts an end to his high-concept prank. And by the episode’s end, he once again retires his trucker hat and leaves the pranking to new host, Justin Beiber.
