Back in October of 2010 we first learned that popstar Justin Bieber (who is celebrating his 18th birthday today) would be hosting a revamped version of Punk’d on MTV. In January of this year, we learned that Punk’d was well into production when they TRIED to pull a prank on Neil Patrick Harris but failed … miserably. Today we learn that the first season of the new version of Punk’d is finished and ready for air. Click below to check out the first Punk’d trailer that features Taylor Swift getting punked by her friend and Punk’d host Justin Bieber.
One of MTV’s most iconic series and talked-about pop culture phenomenons makes its explosive return on Thursday, March 29, when an all-new season of “Punk’d,” featuring a different celebrity host each week, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. “Punk’d,” which became a pop culture phenomenon, is back, revealing the vulnerable and fun-loving side of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities as only MTV can. This season, Ashton Kutcher is passing the torch to a different celebrity host each week, including Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Kellan Lutz, Hayden Panettiere, Bam Margera and “Punk’d” alum Dax Shepard, among many others, who will punk their unsuspecting famous friends, who will include Khloe Kardashian Odom, “Teen Wolf’s” Tyler Posey, Demi Lovato, and many more. The celebrity hosts will take “Punk’d” to a whole new level, with more complex, hilarious and fun punks than ever before. For the first time in the series’ history, the curtain will be pulled back, giving viewers an inside look at what goes on behind-the-scenes to pull off these elaborate pranks. Get ready for some real outrageously fun moments that you wouldn’t expect from your favorite stars!
LOL. Okay … I can’t lie … this video clip not only made me laugh … but it reminded me of how much fun Punk’d was way back in the day when it debuted on MTV the first time around. I’m pretty sure I rolled my eyes back into my skull when I first heard that Punk’d was coming back but now that I see stuff like this in action, I guess I kinda don’t mind that it’s coming back. Taylor Swift looks freaked the eff out … and I LOVE it. At the very least, I plan on watching her episode of Punk’d. Whether or not I’ll watch the whole series again is another story but … OK, MTV, you got me … again. I’ll watch … a little bit. Will you?
