I hate young people:
MTV is finalizing a deal to bring back its signature series Punk’d with teen superstar Justin Bieber as the new host. The show’s creators/ executive producers, original host Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg, are back to executive produce the new installment through their company Katalyst.
There has been a lot of chatter about a Punk’drevival since the celebrity hidden-camera show went off the air in 2007 after 4 years and 69 episodes. I hear Bieber was identified as a new host in the summer with talks going on ever since. No premiere date has been set but the new Punk’d has been quietly gearing up for production and will probably launch next year. [Deadline]
I just wish that this was all an elaborate prank. — that after I hit “publish” on this story, I’d hear a knock on the door, and it would be Bieber telling me that I was Punk’d and that it wasn’t really a television show after all. But wait, why is Bieber punking me if the show doesn’t exist? It’s a dream! I have to go deeper! *BRAAAHHHMMM*
