On the latest episode of Punk’d, host Bam Margera punks Odd Future’s Tyler, The Creator. In the set up, Tyler thinks that he’s helping out a charity by autographing a food truck to be auctioned off. While making food and walking away, the truck mysteriously catches fire and a man starts running away from the fire as he is covered in flames.
The indie rapper instinctively whips out his phone to record the mayhem. Wait a minute, shouldn’t he be dialing 911 first? After he’s blamed for the catastrophe, he begins to get worried. Listen kids, use common sense and alert the authorities in an emergency, not your Facebook friends. Thankfully, no one was actually injured, and Bam punk’d Tyler hard.
The MTV prank show had been off the air since 2007, but has been revived for a ninth season with new twists to keep the show fresh. No longer the host of Punk’d, Ashton Kutcher now serves as an executive producer. Following a format similar to SNL, Punk’d now is hosted by a different star each week. Celebrities won’t know who to trust – even famous BFFs. On the premiere episode Justin Bieber Punk’d his girlfriend Selena Gomez’s best friend Taylor Swift, into thinking she blew up a boat and ruined a wedding. Who will be next? One thing’s for sure: more explosions.
Watch the Tyler, The Creator really truck things up on Punk’d below. Punk’d airs Thursdays at 10 pm ET on MTV Canada and you can watch full episodes on MTV.ca/punkd.Tweet
