Did You Know?


Ashton Kutcher jokes that he's not allowed to be "punked", but in fact it has happened twice - the first time was a test run by producers before the show aired (he was constantly asked to walk through an X-ray machine at MTV offices). The second time occurred when Britney Spears got Kutcher's staff to turn against him. But plan backfired. Ashton realized what was going on, and got Britney to turn on his Punk'd crew. See more »

Interesting if you are bored
23 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bravo to Ashton Kutcnher for making "punk'd" a household name now and adding a semi-celeb version of Candid Camera. However, Punk'd is fun to watch when you are home bored and want something interesting to watch. It's not for people who want to be shocked and amazed and on the edge of your seat type action. It's predictable and not as edgy as it's protégé Candid Camera, but entertaining none-the-less. I think it would be better if some A-list celebs were punk'd like Brad Pitt, Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster, etc. Until then, it'll just be another MTV show that people watch when bored. It's mainly B-list celebs that are punk'd on here.
