Punk’d to Return to MTV with Ashton Kutcher
The Kardashian sisters better watch their backs. MTV is bringing back its celebrity prank show “Punk’d” in 2012. And yes, Ashton Kutcher is involved.
Too busy in his current role on “Two and a Half Men” to host, former “Punk’d” star Kutcher is on board as a co-producer of the revival. If you lived under a rock from 2003 to 2007, the original series featured the former “That 70s Show” star tricking celebrity friends like Justin Timberlake and Halle Berry, capturing all the hijinks on hidden camera.
MTV will announce the show’s new host on New Year’s eve at 11:00 p.m.during its “NYE in NYC 2012” telecast. According to an MTV press release, “viewers will be treated to an exclusive first look at footage from an all-new season of the series.”
Will you watch the newest incarnation of this MTV classic or are you too old/wise for such shenanigans? There’s reports that Justin Bieber might be involved, so it’s anyone’s guess how horrible this might be. If you’re sober enough at 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve to actually care, check out the preview. If you’re in high spirits, however,your time might be better spent convincing your friend someone drove his new car into a river. He’ll think it’s so funny.
