Bloopers. Jokes. Outtakes. Pranks. They’re the best kind of humor, aren’t they? Everything is unexpected, even if something is following a loose script. That’s the way it was for Punk’d. Punk’d still may be Ashton Kutcher’s crowning achievement in the world of entertainment. Yeah, we had to endure a caricature of Ashton as the host of the show, and that was akin to his That ’70s Show character Michael Kelso on crack, but you can’t deny Ashton’s charm…or his pranks. Here are the six best.
6. Wilmer Valderrama
What better way to start this list than to remember Ashton picking on one of his close friends, Wilmer Valerrama. Wilmer has a reputation for being a sweetheart in the business, so when Ashton turned the Punk’d gods of misfortune on his buddy, it gave quite comedic results. Unlike many of the celebrities who were duped into their own surreality, Wilmer remained relatively calm…and confused. To set the stage: Ashton had some custom car guys duplicate Wilmer’s Cadillac Escalade so he could trash Wilmer’s baby. This punk was short, sweet and to the point. The story went like this: the guy who trashed the ride, thought that the car was Ashton’s and that Ashton was sleeping with his girl–the whole act is incredible. 100 percent sell-out for the story. At some point Wilmer tells the guy it’s his car, and the guy suggests Wilmer has been messing with his lady, too.
