Prank Wars: Luke Bryan vs. Dustin Lynch
Note to self: If you decide to take a shirtless picture and video of Dustin Lynch and post it on the internet without his consent, there will be retaliation.
Luke Bryan learned this the hard way.
Okay, let's start from the beginning. During the Kick the Dust Up Tour, there was a 2-day stop in Irvine, Cal., and the weather was great. Lynch took advantage of the picture-perfect day and decided to catch some rays outside of his tour bus.
Bryan took notice of Lynch's little setup and took the opportunity to have some fun and expose his tourmate to the world wide web.
“I’m just laying out getting my suntan on, taking a little nap and I hear something to the left,” Lynch explains to ABC News Radio, “Then I hear right behind me, so I jerk around and [Luke]’s filming me. And then he goes, ‘Hey I just tweeted a picture of you’ and I’m going, ‘God that’s the last thing we need out there, you know, is an unapproved shirtless picture!'"
Lynch wasn't going to let Bryan get away with that without some revenge. So on the show's tour stop in Chicago recently, the relative newcomer put his plan in action.
Bryan's "big black jacked-up truck" is a focal point during his show, using it as an onstage prop often dancing and performing on it. Lynch decided he was going to crash Bryan's party with a truck of his own. So the singer drove a mini-black truck, just like Bryan's, on stage while he was still singing ... and thank goodness we have pictures to document the whole thing.
It looks like Bryan took the prank in good spirit and even enjoyed the ride.
Lynch will be joining Bryan on the 2016 Kill the Lights Tour again in 2016, and he'd better watch his back.
