We wish this were a prank: MTV to revive Punk’d

MTV is reviving Punk’d, according to The Hollywood Reporter — to the excitement of nobody in particular.

Ashton Kutcher’s prank show originally ran from 2003 to 2007, with Kutcher as the on-air host.

The show pulled pranks on everyone from Eminem to Beyonce and Justin Timberlake. If you’ve never seen the pop star’s breakdown over supposedly owing $900,000 in back taxes, it’s worth a glimpse.

With Kutcher starring on Three and a Half Men, it is unlikely that he will reappear in front of the camera. Let’s hope the new host knows that the trucker hat look is so early 2000s.

MTV will preview the new footage during the network’s New Year’s Eve broadcast.
