Watch Rihanna prank Jimmy Kimmel: 'It seemed like a UFO had landed'

Posted on

Jimmy Kimmel might be a formidable prankster, but even he can be fooled every once in awhile. That was Rihanna’s goal when, with the help of Kimmel’s wife and Jimmy Kimmel Live! co-headwriter Molly McNearney, she snuck into his house in the early hours of the morning with a wad of cash, multi-colored flashlights, and a confetti cannon. 

Rihanna probably gave Kimmel the most terrifying 1 a.m. wake-up call of his life as she entered his room with several others dressed in all black, and proceeded to blast her new single “Bitch Better Have My Money” and throw the money and confetti in his face. 

The confused look on Kimmel’s face was priceless as the lights flashed in his eyes and Rihanna jumped on the bed in her platform laced-up boots—which is as dangerous as it is impressive. 

“It seemed like a UFO had landed,” Kimmel said to the camera, still dressed in his bathrobe. Such a classic prank, with perfect execution by Rihanna and her crew.
