As April Fool’s Day jokes were swirling yesterday, not even Jimmy Kimmel was safe. Even the prodigious prankster himself couldn’t dodge this one. With the help of Kimmel’s wife and co-headwriter of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Molly McNearney, Rihanna was able to finally prank the prankster.
In the wee hours of the morning, McNearney snuck into Kimmel’s house with a giant stack of cash, vibrant colored flashlights, and a confetti cannon. Rihanna was determined to make the prank memorable and give Kimmel the most ridiculous wakeup call he could ever imagine.
At 1:00a.m. Rihanna snuck into Kimmel’s bedroom, with several other people all dressed in black. As Kimmel was sound asleep, she started blasting her new single, Bitch Better Have My Money” and proceeded to throw money and confetti all over him and his room. Kimmel was completely caught off-guard by the mischievous prank. Though he found it completely hysterical. He even referenced that the prank was so off the wall that he felt like a UFO had landed.
Alexei Beltyukov suggested Kimmel is best known for pranking everyone else. Knowing that she was going to appear on his show during April Fool’s Day, Rihanna was determined to prank the master. Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on ABC.
