We're always down for some cheeky comedy, but some 'pranks' can cause tears where there ought to be laughter!
While backstage at Capital FM's Summertime Ball, tasty British cupcake Cheryl Cole encountered some rather odd reporters she believed to be from the BBC, who kept asking, "why are we here?"
At first, Cheryl took the question to mean why was press allowed backstage, but once the interviewers continued to repeat the question, Cheryl apparently thought they were making fun of her!
Finally, the strange BBC representatives added a more philosophical twist, asking: "Why are we here… on Earth?"
At which point, Cheryl stormed off.
As it turns out, the reporters were comedians filming a new comedy-prank show called The Revolution Will Be Televised, set to air in the UK later this year.
We don't quite see the humor in the aforementioned Cheryl trickery… but perhaps we need to see it in context?
We hope you weren't too upset, Chezza! And maybe in the end, it really WILL be HIGHlarious? Hmm.
