Punk'd has returned just in time for April Fool's Day! Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes and to get in the pranking spirit, we're taking a look at some of Hollywood's most notorious jokesters in today's special PopSugar Rush. "I just got Punk'd./I just got Punk'd./(screams)" Punk'd is back, with stars such as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus playing the part Ashton Kutcher did back in the day. Among the targets this season? Khloe Kardashian, Miley's man, Liam Hemsworth, and an unsuspecting Taylor Swift. "This is really not OK." "You're doing nothing." "Sir the medics said if you do not sit down you could lose your testicle, please./What!?" All this practical-joking got us thinking about Hollywood's most notorious pranksters — here are our top 5! "We're going to go into Justin Timberlake's home and take his s*it." You could consider Ashton Kutcher the King of celebrity pranksters. He Punk'd countless famous friends during the show's original run from 2003-2007 and he instilled fear in all celebrities who just hoped Ashton was waiting around the corner when they were caught on tape in sticky situations. "You're an a$8*/So you don't make enough money on music to pay off your taxes, maybe you should try TV./1:20-1:24 "Oh this is war!/Win, win, win!" Then there's Ellen DeGeneres, who's made a habit of scaring her guests, though we love it even more when they're in on her joke. How hilarious was it when Ellen had David Beckham repeating her every word while selling his cologne in disguise and receiving a massage? "Can you try not to use your thumbs?/Could you try not to use your thumbs? "Did I feel a thumb?/Did I feel a thumb? (Laughs)" "I issued a challenge, I asked the parents of America to pull a little holiday trick on their children." Fellow talk show host Jimmy Kimmel regularly gets his audience in on the fun, like having parents record their children's reactions after giving them terrible Christmas gifts or eating all of their Halloween candy. "Me and mommy ate it last night when you were asleep./(crying)" "Well Jimmy Kimmel told me to do it./Well tell him to (please bleep out what the kid says)/(laughs)/(Jimmy says "noted.") "Hi, I'm calling regarding the room for rent, it says no smoking but I love my cigs, (laughing)" Nicole Richie first showed off her mischievous side on The Simple Life, when she and then best friend Paris Hilton made multiple prank calls. Since then, Ms. Richie's been known to hack her husband's and her friends' Twitter accounts to post silly messages under their names. And finally, we've got to give it up to George Clooney and Brad Pitt. Both A-listers have a long history of legendary pranks they've played on one another and those who've shared sets with them. "I have done some horrible things to people." "I sent a memo to the entire crew in Italian that said, dear crew. Mr. Clooney ask that you try not to interrupt him, look him in the eye, if you do need to address Mr. Clooney, please refer him only as Daniel or Mr. Ocean (laughs)." From Brad sending a fake memo about George to the whole Oceans cast, to George slapping silly bumper stickers on Brad's car, both boys have pulled off practical jokes that have gone down in Hollywood history, and they're plotting even more! "I'm working on one right now for Brad Pitt that might end his career." "Whatever he's got, this is uglier. (laughs)" Who do you think has pulled off the ultimate Hollywood prank?
