Jimmy Kimmel is no stranger to pranks. The veteran comic personality and host of the late-night “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” talk show has certainly played a role in his fair share of shenanigans, especially in the world of high profile celebrities. So it only makes sense that Kimmel keep his sense of humor going strong when celebrities like Britney Spears and Rihanna show up to his house in the middle of the night to wake and prank him, courtesy of his loving wife.
Recently, it was Miley Cyrus’ turn to provide the well-liked television host with some actual late night nonsense of her own. As seen in the video above, Miley and Mrs. Kimmel prove to be in cahoots as the young pop singer recruits a team of makeshift construction workers to give Mr. Kimmel an early/late wake-up while her 2013 chart-topping hit, “Wrecking Ball” plays in the background.
“For whatever reason, I have become the victim of an unusual prank multiple times now,” Kimmel explains to his studio audience prior to the clip airing on his television show the other night. “I guess this is a series now, because the other night, yet another music superstar barged into my dreams.”
Cyrus and her team can be seen lingering outside of Kimmel’s Los Angeles home in the late hours of the night while sporting hardhats and bathrobes, only to be let in the front door by Mrs. Kimmel for the chaos to ensue. Cyrus and her team of misfits enter the room with sledgehammer in hand and a character dressed in an actual wrecking ball costume. Thankfully, as usual, Kimmel keeps his cool while letting the prank play out, and hopefully this time he didn’t “Crap his pants” as he stated in the pre-video monologue commentary. He even takes some advice from Ms. Miley and gives the sledgehammer a courtesy lick as they leave him to go back to bed with his cute little mouthguard.
Only time will tell if Kimmel recruits his old trouble-making pal Adam Carolla to help him get revenge on those who have woken him up from his slumbers over the years. Your move Kimmel.
