We’re just a few short years away from celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Punk’d, the MTV hidden-camera prank series hosted by Ashton Kutcher; how the time flies. Following the original MTV series, Punk’d received a brief revival in 2012 with a series of guest hosts, as well as a BET reboot hosted by King Bach and DeStorm Power, and the latest incarnation of the series will land on Quibi, the upcoming short-form streaming service. Quibi has released a new trailer for the Punk’d reboot, which features Chance the Rapper pranking a number of celebrities with malfunctioning cars, explosions, and escaped gorillas.
“The MTV series that coined the cultural verb, ‘Punk’d,’ started a phenomenon by going where no show had gone before,” reads the official logline. “Now, Chance the Rapper, along with his signature ‘3’ baseball cap, is stepping into the director’s chair with new laughs, new hoaxes and new celebrity ‘marks’ in bite-sized episodes. This time around, no stars are safe, and the hidden cameras will be there to catch every second.” Lil Nas X, Adam Devine, Migos, French Montana, Megan Thee Stallion, Sabrina Carpenter, Addison Rae, Ty Dolla $ign, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin, and Liza Koshy round out the series’ targets, and Scott Disick has also been tapped as a guest host.
Punk’d will debut on Quibi on April 6th.
