34 Hilarious Celebrity Pranks

These Celebrity April Fools Jokes Put the Spotlight on Having Fun

— March 25, 2014 — Pop Culture
Whether for good or purely for the sake of mischief, celebrity prank stunts always seem to be entertaining. If the show 'Punk’d' is any indication, because famous people are in the public eye, the rest of us can’t help but wonder how they will react to certain situations, no matter if they are in on the joke or at the butt of it.

Even if you don’t have a celebrity’s number on speed dial, these pranks provide plenty of inspiration for gags you could pull on April Fool’s Day. Some lucky look-alikes may even be able to get away with anything if they dress and act the part. A perfect example of this is a man who got himself dressed up like the viral YouTube sensation Psy and duped both organizers and celebrities alike at the Cannes Film Festival last year.
