Punk'd returns tonight on MTV with a new host and handful of new pranks on celebrities.
Punk'd first aired on MTV in 2003 and was created and hosted by Ashton Kutcher. Because of Kutcher's celebrity he was able to set up other celebrities in prank situations. The show became a hit and aired for eight seasons ending in 2007. Among the celebrities punked during the show was Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Rihanna, Kanye West and The Rock.
Tonight Punk'd premieres with Ashton Kutcher as executive producer and Justin Bieber as the guest host. As viewers wait to see Bieber punk Rob Dyrdek, Taylor Swift and Sean Kingston, we take a look back at the five best pranks from Punk'd.
Justin Timberlake was the first celebrity to be punked. In the sketch Timberlake comes home to discover that tax enforcement agents are going to seize all his belongings including his home and cars because of unpaid taxes to the tune of $900,000. Timberlake's mom and best friend are in on the prank and Dax Sheperd plays the tax enforcement agent. Watch at the 7:45 mark to see the Timberlake segment and the singer get visibly upset.
Back before Beyonce married Jay-Z and gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter, she was caught up in the Punk'd ring. Beyonce thought she was going to help some schoolchildren light a Christmas tree and sing carols with them and ends up wrecking Christmas and having a young girl yell out, You ruined Christmas. Watch at the 5:35 mark to see Beyonce get Punk'd.
Neve Campbell plays the main character in the Scream movies and her Punk'd skit probably made the actress want to scream. In the skit Campbell is approached by a kid who tells her he is lost. Campbell helps the child find his group and watches them leave in a van. The child's father then approaches Campbell and asks her why she let him leave in a van. Watch a snippet of Campbell getting punked.
Hilary Duff is now a wife and mother but in her Punk'd episode she was a young woman learning to drive while a fight breaks out between her instructor and another driver. Watch at the 5:33 mark to see Duff get punked.
Katie Holmes is now married to one of the biggest movie stars in the world, Tom Cruise, and mother to Suri, who makes fashion headlines, but on her Punk'd episode she was just a girl caught in a love triangle - not hers of course. Watch at the 5:10 to see Holmes get punked.
Tune in tonight to see the Punk'd action and this season to see celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Tyler, The Creator, Dianna Agron, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole Snooki Polizzi, Josh Hutcherson and Tyler Posey get punked.
