Punk'd Fails That Never Made The Air
Was Punk’d one of the greatest shows of the 00s? We think so. What other show would take a celebrity and make them cry, right there on national telly? Not many. But Punk’d did and it did it a lot.
Let’s face it, the show didn’t have many boundaries, which is why they weren’t afraid to prank Laura Prepon, a woman with the force of Scientology behind her. But apparently, there were some things even Punk’d couldn’t air, as Ashton Kutcher admitted on The Late Late Show With James Corden last year. And if there are things even Punk’d was afraid to air, you know they must have been pretty bad.
But thanks to The Huffington Post, we now know what we were missing out on...
Zach Braff throwing punches
You might have seen Braff’s Season 4 episode, which involved his new car getting covered in graffiti. What you didn’t see was Braff running after one of the Punk’d actors involved and trying to beat him up. He must have really loved that car.
Serena Williams’ high-speed car chase
Proof that Ashton Kutcher isn’t afraid to cross the line, Serena Williams’ Punk’d episode involved a teenager abducting a baby. What the team didn’t expect was for Serena Williams to then jump in her car and chase them down at 100 miles an hour. What’s more, the teenage actor/abductor only had a learner’s permit at the time, so it’s not really that surprising that most of that car chase was edited out.
JoJo’s foul mouth
We might never know the finer details of JoJo’s punking. Apparently it involved swearing and she wouldn’t sign the release in case the tirade of bad language upset her young fans.
Hilary Duff’s random gunman
Everything was going fine on Hilary Duff’s fake driving lesson… Until some random man pulled up alongside the team’s car and showed them his gun, that is. Luckily, he just drove off.
Drake’s freak out
Ok, so as Drake’s punking involved simulating an earthquake whilst he was in a car park, you can’t blame the guy for jumping into his friend’s lap and curling up in the foetal position, right? Still, it seems the experience was something he didn’t want to share.
David Spade’s entire episode
Spade unsurprisingly refused to let Punk’d use this episode. Kutcher and friends had enjoyed dinner and drinks with the actor before leaving him with a £9,000 bill for the whole table. So far, so funny - right? At some point, Spade realised what was going on and called it off, but not before he had bad-mouthed half of Hollywood at the table. To a mic’d up Ashton.
