Ashton Kutcher Was The King Of Punk’d
Ashton Kutcher’s hidden camera series Punk‘d premiered on MTV in 2003. Similar to Candid Camera and TV’s Bloopers & Practical Jokes, the series targeted unsuspecting celebrities. One who is “punk’d” is a victim of one of Ashton’s pranks. Singer Justin Timberlake was the victim of the first episode. He was told government agents were seizing his property because he failed to pay income taxes. Other celebs who appeared on the show include: Demi Lovato, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, John Cena, and Zac Efron. Kutcher said in 2016 that his favorite episode involved rapper Drake. Producers pretended he was experiencing an earthquake in a parking garage.
