Katy Perry Pranks Orlando Bloom on BBC Radio 1
Katy Perry's English Accent Is So Good That Orlando Bloom Didn't Even Recognize Her
Orlando Bloom got pranked by fiancée Katy Perry during a celebrity impressions game on BBC Radio 1 in the UK this week, while on-air presenter Nick Grimshaw suggested that Bloom be the judge of a fun game of impressions by Radio 1 listeners. Callers tried doing impressions of Tom Hardy as Bane from The Dark Knight Rises and celebrated British naturalist David Attenborough, but when caller "Gemma" phoned in to do impression of Perry, Bloom wasn't convinced.
The first impression of Tom Hardy as Bane got Bloom cracking up; his feedback to the caller, Scott, was that it was "interesting," "a very bold attempt," but perhaps he should try "going down a couple of octaves." The second caller was more successful, "Wow! I'm impressed" exclaimed Bloom. But then, Gemma from Hertfordshire called in to have a go at a Katy Perry impression by singing part of the chorus of "I Kissed A Girl." Bloom immediately cringed. Diplomatic as ever, he commented, "Gemma that was great, really well done. Not convinced. But, hard for me because I do live with that voice," having no idea it was actually Perry on the line, pranking him.
When Bloom finally realized that the joke was on him, he cracked up, and we got a sweet glimpse at the relationship he has with Katy as they shared a cute, flirty chat with one another. We love how fun and playful Katy and Orlando seem to be with each other. See for yourself in the clip above.
