The Wanted: 'Punk'd' by Tyler, The Creator

Posted on

As you likely know, MTV’s Punk’d is back, with different celebrities at the helm each week. This Thursday, Odd Future star Tyler, The Creator, is taking on “Glad You Came” boy band The Wanted. EW has an exclusive sneak peek video at the punking below.

“They’re big in the U.K., but this is their first time in America,” Tyler tells the cameras. “But I’m about to f— that up.” Then, you see the group being detained by police during their visit to the States. “We’re a boy band.” one member of the group tells an officer. To which the cop hilariously replies: “Do you shave your chest?”

“He’s about to cry,” you can hear Tyler tell his crew in a secret van.

Needless to say, this punking ought to be a good one. This episode of Punk’d — which also finds the Kardashians‘ Scott Disick and 90210‘s Shenae Grimes getting punk’d — airs Thursday, April 19 at 10 p.m. on MTV. Watch the exclusive clip here:

(Also, MTV hasn’t confirmed, but sources tell EW that original Punk’d host Ashton Kutcher is going to be on an upcoming episode.)
