Video: Lakers’ Metta World Peace gets “Punk’d”

Who sits around and says, “let’s test the patience and restraint of Metta World Peace?”

Well, the guys at “Punk’d.”

They have World Peace’s publicist in on the deal and they trap World Peace in the parking lot (a common fear in LA), complete with annoying fans wanting photographs and a dim-witted person on the other end of the speaker — everything designed to make World Peace not live up to his name.

He does much better than he did around James Harden.
