Brad Paisley is a major prankster. He’s notorious for his love of sneaky shenanigans on tour — usually done to his openers. But this time, his opening acts Lee Brice and the Henningsens got to him first, pulling a major prank on the singer.
The hilarious video which captured the prank starts out with text (and the victorious Star Wars anthem playing in the background), saying, “A long time ago … well actually just the other day. A small group of rebel musicians — the Henningsens and Lee Brice went to a costume shop in Colorado before their concert opening for Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour to surprise Brad during his performance.”
The video also gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the costume store, which is an eclectic mix of Star Wars paraphernalia and other off-the-wall costumes. What ensued was a super funny concert interruption.
Included in the mix of concert pranksters were some pretty clever costumes (some personalized for the singers), such as Tin Man, Princess Clara, Aaron Skywalker, Brian-Vader, a man-eating shark and WookLee Brice. Paisley looked surprise to see them all saunter onstage, but showed he’s a true entertainer, continuing his set with a broad smile across his face.
It might be hard to concentrate with Star Wars characters scuffling in the background and a giant man-eating shark towering over you, but the ‘I Can’t Change the World’ singer carried on like it was no big deal. In fact, he carried on like he’d experienced his share of pranking — and being a prankster — before.
He’s certainly the master of mischievous behavior, even revealing he could have worked for the CIA after pulling one off when the Band Perry was on tour with him and pranking ‘American Idol’ winner Scotty McCreery. Although he’s done his share of pranking, Paisley has been pranked before. Remember when McCreery showed up dressed exactly like him, and his good buddy Blake Shelton brought back the mullet to surprise him?
Well, Brice and the Henningsens better watch their backs … once you prank Paisley, he’s sure to pay you back!
