Video: Lakers’ Metta World Peace gets “Punk’d”

May 16, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

Who sits around and says, “let’s test the patience and restraint of Metta World Peace?”

Well, the guys at “Punk’d.”

They have World Peace’s publicist in on the deal and they trap World Peace in the parking lot (a common fear in LA), complete with annoying fans wanting photographs and a dim-witted person on the other end of the speaker — everything designed to make World Peace not live up to his name.

He does much better than he did around James Harden.

Hat tip to Lakers Nation.

    Aren’t you guys about a little late on this story? The episode aired last week. If you think this is current news, I think you guys got Punk’d.

    He really didn’t get punk’d, he kept his composure the whole time. More like prank’d.

    Punk’d is back on? So much for originality on TV. No Kutcher either, that’s a little sad.
