As if there needed to be a formal ceremony, Ashton Kutcher has passed the celeb pranking torch to Justin Bieber, officially. Ashton’s old show, Punk’d is returning to television, but this time minus Ashton as its master of ceremonies. Justin was rumored to be taking the reigns of the show permanently, but instead the new show will have celebs trade off on pranking one another. Of course, any reboot needs to start with a bang though and who better to kick off a new generation of celebrity pranks than Justin?

Justin gladly stepped into the prankmaster booth and decided on his and Selena‘s good friend Taylor Swift as his first target. The prank went down last Friday, but we don’t have word yet about how Justin punk’d Taylor. What do you think he did?

Do you think Justin should host the new Punk’d permanently? What other celebs would you like to see host? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
