For a special installment of "Punk'd" (Sun., 8 p.m. ET on MTV) that aired before the "2012 MTV Movie Awards," Ashton Kutcher took control of the show that he first made into a cultural phenomenon in the early 2000s. And he targeted one of the most famous personalities in pop culture: Kim Kardashian.
But first, he went for a major name in music, and someone who was very aware of the show, and thus needed to be handled carefully. Kutcher was very excited to try and pull one over on Drake, and he went big with a staged earthquake in a parking garage. The prank went off perfectly, and Drake was both thrilled and not-at-all-amused by Kutcher taking him down a notch.
But while Drake was screaming and very animated during his prank, Kardashian had a very different response. Although there were explosions and the father of her nephew Scott Disick was being arrested after accusing a fan of stealing his wallet, Kardashian spent the majority of her prank in the car, texting or talking on her phone. She was pretty much unfazed.
Kutcher was satisfied with the results, and particularly in the success of his elaborate Drake prank. And so, he once again retired his trucker hat and prepared to hand the reins of "Punk'd" off to other celebrities should its new incarnation continue.
