David Boreanaz: Punk'd

This is years old, but a very good watch. You can't help but simultaneously feel bad for him, and admire how strongly he feels about his wife and protecting her.

Thanks, Louise for finding this!

Dani said...

am i sad for finding that really distasteful?

I have never found any show that does that sort of stuff to people funny...
i am a sad sad lady, i think! :)

eeeks. that is painful to watch. he seems sweet and very concerned about his wife, but a little scary. i felt really bad for him.

i watched this years ago online. i hated the prank they used. he was so worried about her. i wouldn't have been able to go through with it seeing how it was affecting him.

and kudos to david for staying respectful in that kind of situation. speaks volumes for his character.

I hate these shows too...But I liked the way DB reacted both before and after he realized it was a "joke".He didn't lose his temper,he didn't shout, he just asked for what he deserved and was protective of his wife...I admire him even more after this..

jenny said...

lol ninirific we typed pretty much the same things the same time!

I have been trying to find this over the past couple of years with no luck. Even though I hate the kind of prank that they did on him, I have to say that I am impressed with how he acted. He didn't get all out of control like some that you see. While he was talking he kept calm and respectful. I loved seeing how he treated his wife!!

Louise said...

Strangely enough, I agree with you all ... I hate Punk'd and cannot stand Ashton Kutcher.

But I do think these types of shows do reveal a lot about the person's character. And I think DB did a really good job, even if he did go a bit over the top with the 'phone the police' bit.

He is pretty scary as well though (although I quite like that ... very Alpha Male!)

I just think it's hilarious how he still manages to be pretty respectful, even though you could tell he was furious...
"There is GLASS in her SALAD ... SIR" :)

he loves his wife so much:)

Shep said...

I felt sooo sorry for him too! I agree with you all, I really don't like it when they do this to people - I'd be furious if it happened to me. David managed to be respectful while still being very scary and intimidating and I admire him for that. I agree Louise: very Alpha Male! I love how protective he is 'step away from my wife!' - very sweet!

Is it me, or is there a Bone on the back of David's sweatshirt?? Lol!

it was painfull to watch and his wife helped to set it up. so what does it tell you about who she is? I for one does not find it one bit funny because he got really into it and seemed very worried. most of these are actually funny and rather harmless but this wasn't one of them.

CupcakeBean said...

I find "jokes" like this in poor taste, but as the rest of you said, David handled himself very well. A lot of celebrities that have been Punk'd have gotten completely belligerent and made a scene. David was obviously furious, but he didn't make a scene and he didn't act like a complete jerk. I work with customers and have seen people act much worse over things that weren't nearly as serious. Kudos to David!

I've watched this before, and couldn't help wondering - did he know ahead of time?

If I was actually to participate in a practical joke against my husband, I would warn him first. Any good wife would. To do otherwise would be a betrayal, even if only a minor one.

And as an excellent actor, DB could certainly pull off the pretense.

I think she warned him.

Angelator said...

Ugh - thanks for reminding me how much I HATE Ashton Kutcher. He's such a moron!

lyssie said...

i think this stuff is really stupid. how do people find this funny? Whatever. he did stay very calm though and i applaud him for that. even when he found out it was a prank.

ForensicMama said...

Poor David. Jamie's a great actress... totally punked her hubby. I find it hard to trick my own hubby because he knows me so well, so that just tells me how great of an actress she must be! ;)
I felt terrible for David, though.

Lawrence said...

Jokes involving simulated physical injury to a loved one are beyond foul. My respect or regard for his wife is now compromised. While I like to think I would remain as calm as David, I would most certainly have very calmly broken that mans arm when he reached for her mouth.

Some ladies have used the word "respectful" in describing Davids actions. Perhaps the use of that word is misguided. David demonstrated a high degree of intelligent concern and love. He is a consummate gentleman.

I have seen Kutchers name for years, I had no idea his celebrity was based upon such uglyness.

Sorry for the obviously male opinion in such an intensely female forum. Bones is the only show I watch and I like this place.

Wendy said...

Happy to have a male perspective :)

ugh i was nevous for him before it even started but i can't belive how calm he managed to act and obviously how much he cares about his wife....it was kinda funny when the guy was like "are you sure?"

David had the glass in his hand and says very clearly "GLASS"

...I dont think I could have kept with it if I was his wife... I'd try but i'd just wanna stop and give him a BIG hug and say sorry lol...then i'd feel bad for awhile

i really do not like that show at all, i've never found it funny, but the way he stays calm and is so protective of his wife really says a lot about him - admirable!

This is a terrible joke. I'm so impressed with how DB handles this. I don't get the impression that his original intention was to call the police. When he asks for the manager, he even remembers to thank the waitress. When the manager comes, he asks for his business card. When the manager's response to the situation is obviously deranged, he intends to file a report. I don't know what one should do with such an unreasonable response to something like this. So many Hollywood types would start yelling things like "don't you know who the hell I am?!" "I'll ruin you!" and so forth. All his responses are really impressive, in my book.

Amber said...

At the very beginning, right before jamie gets her salad and their talking, does she say somthing about his mom dying...or am i just crazy? I feel really bad for him though, you just don't do that kind of stuff to people, it's very very wrong!

Jessica said...

Haven´t seen it before he really is the most adorable, normal and protective guy just love him

Becky said...

I must say that when i saw this and clicked on it i was worried about how DB would react. I agree with all you guys, because personally i would freak out. although i must say, the glass in the salad was pretty random.My admiration for him has definitely increased :). The "authorities" WAS a little bit over the top but thats ok. and i still respect his wife just because she must have some kind of goodness and sweetness in her, because DB loved her so much that he would get that concerned..

Cheryl said...

@ Lawrence
I'm with u as far as practical jokes go...u really shouldn't play with ppl's hearts like that. Poor David...I can't imagine how awful that must be to take ur wife out & have the salad be quite literally dangerous. I don't respect Jaime less for helping to punk her husband tho becuz I know there r ppl who think being part of a practical joke is cool & mean no harm by it. I'm more of a Denise Archibald (from the movie John Q) kinda girl tho

[paraphrasing]

My husband and I are a team. I support him, I stand behind him 100% in everything he does. You can not _use_ me, to get to my husband!

That said, DB's response says VOLUMES abt his character...rock on David; live long & prosper.

liz said...

Wow -- I have to say I am much more impressed with him than I was previously. He seems like such a normal healthy person, makes me want to become his (normal) friend, not a 'fan' who assumes I know him when I don't. Some of his interviews on TV are similarly personally revealing (eg Bonnie Hunt).

Kenzi said...

i didnt see anything funny about that. it just seemed mean imo.

Anonymous said...

Wow, his wife got him good. It's all good because he got her back by having affairs on her.

sapphire1234 said...
