I could have done without the non-celebrity pranks, since I’ve seen those types of gags a zillion times before, but like I said, thankfully these 2 discs are very short and can be watched in one sitting-- especially if it's a drunk sitting with some friends with weed. Ah yes, celebs are people too and they too, are cranky and pissheads when people fuck with them. Stephen Dorff getting stuck with the restaurant bill was also a doozie. I’m also glad to hear that host/creator Ashton Kutcher has decided to pull the plug on his show after its second season, since 1) his between-scenes shtick was already getting quite annoying and 2) it was starting to become a little obvious that certain “marks” knew that they were being punk’d and that’s when the show would have lost all of its credibility anyway. That said, it does the trick this time around, so check it out if you dig on hidden camera shows and want to see really rich, successful semi-talented punks...punk other punks.
You can also watch all 8 episodes while listening to a commentary track featuring Kutcher and one of the actors that he used in many of the first season’s sketches, named Dax. I only listened to a few of these tracks, but the boys were quite lively, tossed a couple of stories out there about specific celebs (and just like any guy, talk about the great asses that ladies like Pink and Britney Spears haul under their backs) and rambled on about lots of things not related to the episodes in particular. A decent listen, but if you don’t enjoy the Kutch-man, obviously one to skip.
“Download and Share” is a lame 7-second rant from Kutcher bitching about us downloading his dvd or something. Aren’t we all sick of hearing about this whole “piracy” thing already? Boring. “Never Before Seen Segments” includes only two unaired skits called “Young Executive” and “Blind Tattoo”. The first one is clever, but begins to border on cruel and somewhat obnoxious, which is never cool. The second bit’s lame. They’re both about 3 minutes long and don’t feature any celebs. A 4-minute “Also Available from MTV” clip is basically just shameless self-promotion of additional MTV dvd titles. Big fat yawner and unclassy.
