Chance the Rapper Is Hosting a Punk'd Reboot on Quibi

The Punk'd Revival Trailer Is Here, and It Looks Like Ashton Taught Chance the Rapper Well

Chance the Rapper has signed on to host a reboot of MTV's Punk'd, so keep your eye out for any hidden cameras that might be lurking nearby — we have a feeling things are about to get wild. A revival of the 2003 MTV prank show originally hosted by Ashton Kutcher, the Punk'd reboot will be premiering on Quibi, a platform for short-form content expected to launch on April 6. The new show has been signed for 20 episodes, each under 10 minutes long, and will be executive produced by Jason Goldberg.

Fans of the original show will remember how hilarious it was to see Kutcher prank celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Drake, Beyoncé, and more. So who are Chance's targets? Lil Nas X, Adam Devine, Scott Disick, Megan Thee Stallion, Sabrina Carpenter, Marsai Martin, and Liza Koshy are just a few of the celebrities expected to appear on the show's first season, and they clearly had no idea what was in store for them.

"Punk'd is one of MTV's most iconic franchises," Chance the Rapper told Variety. "I grew up watching this show and it's surreal to be in the driver's seat this time around on Quibi." Anyone who signs up for the streaming platform before April 6 will also have access to three bonus episodes of the show. Watch the trailer here to get a feel for the upcoming show and to see Liza Koshy and Adam Devine get pranked. (Be warned: that gorilla costume is very realistic.)
