(AllHipHop News) Any sports fan has heard about the outrageous pranks athletes play on each other. Now we’ll be able to see for ourselves. Meta World Peace (formerly known as Ron Artest) will be pranking his fellow pro ballers in a his very own show. Deadline.comreports:
LMNO Prods., producers of CBS hidden camera series of specials I Get That A Lot, has partnered with Los Angeles Lakers player, Metta World Peace (born Ronald William Artest) and his Artest Media Group to develop Metta World Pranks, a new prank series featuring professional athletes in hidden camera bits. In addition to Metta and other professional athletes, the show’s practical jokes will also include family members, friends, boyfriends, girlfriends and fans. “Pranking and practical jokes are part of the athletic culture, so it comes naturally to Metta,” said Eric Schotz, President and CEO of ICM Partners-repped LMNO Prods. Metta has a great sense of humor and this show will be a natural vehicle for him to showcase a side of his personality we don’t get to see on the court.”
The list of pros we want to see pranked is long.
No word on when filming starts but perhaps that recent Kevin Garnett and Carmelo Anthony run in was one big prank. If so, good one Meta. We’ll be watching.
