People just don’t get enough of pranks, it is something people see as fun and entertaining to some, and for others, it’s nothing short of a traumatic experience.
Pranks are done mostly for fun, but they can be very dangerous, as certain people take it a bit too far. Nevertheless, life is full of risks, so people still continue with pranks anyway.
The TV show “Punk’d” once starred one of Hollywood’s biggest artist Justin Timberlake many years ago. During a recent interview, the singer shared his feelings about the prank and why he found it unpleasant.
Punk’d TV Show
It was first aired in 2003, and it usually centers on pranks played on celebrities. It also records their reactions and the revelations for fans all over the world, to have a good laugh.
The show was originally meant for ordinary citizens, but due to some unfortunate events, it was only played on celebrities, which is a whole lot fun.
The show played its first prank on American singer-songwriter, Timberlake a few years ago. Find out more below.
Justin’s Prank Experience
Timberlake had returned from a golf play with a friend, only to be met by a fake IRS team. He was told that he owed the IRS $904,000, and all his property was going to be seized.
He was at first upset and confused about the whole situation, however, he got more upset when his friend told him that the dogs were being seized too. No! Don’t play with the furry friends.
They also tried taking his phone away, then when his guitar was broken, Kutcher put an end to the charade.
His Reason For Being Worried
During a conversation with Dax Shepard ‘s “Armchair Expert” podcast, Timberlake said he was actually very worried about his dogs.
The dogs were his mother’s, and she loved them so much. When he heard that they would be seized as well, he became very frustrated and restless.
This shows what a great guy Timberlake is, as he stopped thinking about his property, when his mother’s happiness got involved. What a wonderful person.
He also spoke about being “high,” he didn’t know if everything was real or not.
Shepard’s Career Aftermath
In the same podcast, Dax Shepard who was part of the team who pranked Timberlake, and acted as the fake IRS, spoke about how the show really helped his career.
He also talked about how careful he was in acting his role, as he didn’t want to make a mess by letting the prank turn into something else.
He was always told on the phone what to do, what not to do, what to say, and what not to say. They all laughed during the interview, as they reminisced on the best episodes from the show.
