April Fool’s Alert…Stars Prank People on CBS

image001.jpgRole Mommy has just received a sneak peak video clip from I GET THAT A LOT, an April Fool’s Day CBS television special featuring celebrities pulling pranks on everyday people that will air this Wednesday, April 1 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). All I can say is, next year, I’d like to request being pranked by either Drew Barrymore or Reese Witherspoon. Then again, I’d rather go to lunch with them, but I guess that’s a totally different TV show altogether, which I would call: LET’S DO LUNCH. But I digress….
I GET THAT A LOT features celebrities tricking everyday citizens in a case of supposed “mistaken identity.” Working ordinary jobs, these celebrities confuse customers who can’t decide if it’s the actual celebrity or an astonishing look-alike. As these celebrity jesters continue to deny their true identities, various reactions from their customers solicit exasperated and hilarious responses.
Celebrity participants include singer/actress Jessica Simpson working at a computer repair store, supermodel Heidi Klum (“Project Runway”) working the counter at a pizza shop, Jeff Probst (Emmy Award-winning host of CBS’s “SURVIVOR”) running a cashier at a grocery store, Ice-T (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) posing as an athletic shoe salesman, Grammy Award winner LeAnn Rimes taking food orders at a Nashville diner and Mario Lopez (host of “Extra”) selling hot dogs from a vending stand in New York’s Central Park.
