I never watched that MTV show called Punk’d very often, but I knew the basic concept. Ashton Kutcher goes around setting up and recording elaborate pranks. The thing that makes this show enjoyable is that the targets are celebrities: actors, musicians, athletes, etc. I don’t know what MTV’s programming schedule is, so I just basically watch Punk’d over on YouTube. They don’t have full episodes up, but you can see specific pranks pulled on specific celebrities.
Anyway, I actually like Punk’d. It gives us a chance to see how celebrities act when they think they’re out of the spotlight. Some of them are actually very gracious, kind people (Serena Williams comes to mind) and some are not (I won’t mention names here). It was also interesting for me to see that Matthew Perry was exactly the same kind of wisecracking joker as his character Chandler on Friends. Pretty funny!
Punk’d is entertaining in bits and pieces, but I don’t think I could sit through a marathon of it or anything like that. But for now, I like it!
