Justin Bieber just turned 18 this week, and what could be a better birthday gift than managing to "punk" a good friend? A trailer for the season premiere of MTV's newly revived Punk'd was released this week, showing the b'day boy doing just that. And not just any good friend--America's sweetheart Taylor Swift, to boot!
The trailer, which showed up as an exclusive on Ryan Seacrest's site Thursday, has a smiling Bieber saying "I think we should start with Taylor." He then apparently gets Swift to shoot some fireworks off the balcony of a beach house. Which land on an offshore yacht. And cause it to catch on fire!
But wait, there's more. According to Bieber, this particular yacht apparently is hosting a wedding ceremony. So poor Swift not only is horrified by the idea of burning up someone's boat--she's tricked into thinking she's actually ruined someone's special day!
"This is completely not okay," we hear a flustered-sounding Swift saying in the background. Watch for yourselves:
Aw, I have to say this is a little mean, knowing Swift's notorious romantic soft heart. That really must have caused her to panic. Not nice, Biebs! I mean, It's one thing to have, say, Kanye West think he's ruined someone's incomparable precious moment in time...(cough, cough). Okay, couldn't resist that one.
The season premiere of Punk'd is March 29 at 10 p.m. ET. Be sure to tune in for the full story--I'm pretty sure Taylor will forgive Justin for her near-heart attack.
What do you think of this little joke? Will you be watching at the end of the month? Be sure to let me know!
