Watch Justin Bieber Punk Miley Cyrus & Taylor Swift in ‘Punk’d’ Revival

You know what the deal with the Punk’d revival is: celebrities pranking other celebrities, exposing each other’s moral failing for ratings gold. Will Selena Gomez get upset if she thinks she’s ruined a child’s Christmas? Will Drake murder a dog to get out of a speeding charge? Let’s see! This first episode of the new Punk’d, as new host Justin Bieber puts it to stars like Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, is a worthy successor to the proud legacy that former host Ashton Kutcher left. Bieber makes Swift think she’s ruined a wedding, and makes Cyrus think he’s committed assault and battery. Sooooo crazy, right? Start your Friday off right, via MTV.

Starring as the host of Punk’d will go a long way towards building Bieber’s brand as a wild and crazy guy; he’s even got that same damn skull cap, the one Kutcher used to cover up his insecurity. And, hah, I guess it’s still pretty funny to watch Swift freak out like she’s a responsible and caring human being, assuming you like to laugh at other peoples’ nervous breakdowns. (I do!) Punk’d is normally on MTV every Thursday at 10.
