Watch Rihanna prank Jimmy Kimmel in his own bed

Posted on

ABC

Jimmy Kimmel is a master of the pranking arts, so you would think that with the calendar reading the first of April, he would be making someone look quite foolish. But today it appears that the prank puller has become the prank… pullee(?). On tonight’s installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the late-night talk show host falls victim to a gag by Rihanna. At the inhospitable hour of 1 a.m., aided and abetted by Kimmel’s wife/JKL co-headwriter Molly McNearney, Rihanna slipped into Kimmel’s bedroom and shocked him back to consciousness with a performance of her new single, “Bitch Better Have My Money.” JKL has released the set-up of the gag now, which you can watch below while Rihanna takes a bow. To see what happens once he wakes up, catch Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET. on ABC.
