13. Luke Bryan Friends should be called the Rat Pack
In this video footage from Buck Commander, the guys have a little fun at Luke Bryan’s expense. While in the deer stand, the cameraman asks him for a pair of ear buds, so the singer reaches into his backpack and quickly discovers a new rodent friend he dubs “Mr. Bo-Doddly.” Yes, the rat flips out on the award-winning entertainer— peeing on him and giving him a nasty bite. Fellow Country singer Jason Aldean has some fun with this prank.
In an interview about the dramatic episode alongside an amused Jason Aldean, Luke states, “You know, ever since then, I’ve been having fevers at night and cold chills, so I probably got some kind of rare sewer rat virus.”
14. The Swon Brothers Prank Bobby Bones
After an appearance on The Bobby Bones show, where Bones called The Swon Brothers “too vanilla”, the brothers decided to show the host just how vanilla they can be.
Over one hundred gallons of Purity vanilla ice cream would just about cover that. The Swon Brothers enlisted the help of their management team, the fine folks at Purity Dairy and even some of iHeart’s employees who wanted to get in on the action.

The prank began at 7:30am, as they frantically built scaffolding to hold the hundreds of gallons of ice cream. When Bobby finished his show and made his way to the parking garage, escorted by his sidekick Amy who was in on the prank, he saw a huge structure made of ice cream where his car was supposed to be. Zach and Colton Swon jumped out from behind the ice cream and shouted to him “Hey, remember when you told us we were vanilla, well we found out that vanilla happens to be America’s favorite flavor, so we just wanted to share some with you!” Bobby responded, “Yeah… this is good! You got me… you got me.” The brothers then donated the ice cream to Nashville’s Second Harvest Food Bank in recognition of The Bobby Bones Show “Pimpin Joy” week.
15. Maren Morris Pranks Keith Urban
During Keith Urban’s last stateside Ripcord World Tour stop in New York, opener Maren Morris totally pulled a fast one on the unsuspecting country music superstar. The “My Church” songstress was supposed to join Urban for a duet of “We Were Us,” but drummer Christian Paschall shimmied onto the stage instead.
As expected, Keith totally lost it when Christian (who looks a lot like viral internet sensation Joanne the Scammer) emerged dressed as Maren and lip syncing the duet. Maren soon joined Keith and Christian on stage in almost the same outfit. What a fun candid moment!
