During its heyday in the first decade of the 21st century, Punk’d He built a reputation by pranking Hollywood stars like Kim Kardashian using unfathomable scenarios. Most of the outrageous pranks have paid off, leaving the stars in the midst of them mad, sad, or just plain shocked. But not all projects were successful, as it was rumored that some episodes were canceled due to Target figuring things out. One of the people who didn’t fall in love with anything was Gabrielle Union, who was the target of the show on various occasions. And just recently, she and series alum Dax Shepard gleefully recalled the multiple failed attempts.
The big mistakes came when Gabrielle Union was Dax Shepard’s guest Armchair expert Podcast. As mentioned on the show, the host interviewed the actress’ husband — former NBA star Dwyane Wade — in 2022, so they’re definitely familiar with each other. However, the former fatherhood The cast member indicated that they met more than two decades ago. Union could not remember when or where she met him, which leads Shepherd to mention that she is not married Punk’d Episodes:
The podcast host remembers him Punk’d days, the actress immediately remembered that she was in the famous hidden camera show. She even specifically remembered how many times she had been there, saying the crew “twice tried” to get her. Dax Shepard also explained that he was only part of one of the attempts, and it’s very specific:
Apparently, he just wanted to make sure his guest (and listeners) knew he had only personally failed once. From here, the search The star detailed the first failed hoax that the MTV show tried to play on her:
This first fake scenario actually sparked Gabrielle Union, calling parking garages “the bane of their existence.” She raised her anxiety associated with them and remembered where her car was parked. Dax Shepard corrects her by saying that these misadventures occurred before the premiere of the first season of the prank reality series. Shepherd then shed light on the second time the team attempted to acquire Union:
Anyone who sees a huge satellite dish (associated with space exploration) in your yard will be thrown. Union recalled that she pulled up to her house with the plate in her driveway, and it didn’t seem like it took her long to get a feel for what was really going on:
So Cheaper by the dozen The star has already entered the awful situation with a great deal of skepticism. It’s also interesting to hear that Jamie Foxx was involved, and a few details seem to have slipped through Shepard’s mind:
After Union caught and walked away from Shepard, it was reported that series creator Ashton Kutcher was trying to get him to push the prank further. But the podcast host mentioned that he had to give Kutcher a reality check after union suspicions began:
So I would say the most important thing to take away from those two cases is that you simply can’t pull one off at Gabrielle Union. The star – who recently voiced a character in a Disney character strange world – Just very clever. So if Ashton Kutcher suggested Punk’d The reboot doesn’t ever get off the mark, don’t expect it to be one of the pranks.
The actress will return as a guest star in a different sequel series – The Proud Family: Loudest and Proud — later this year, and you’ll be able to stream her episode with a Disney+ subscription.
