Have you been following what’s been going on with Paris Hilton? A video came out that claimed Paris was the target of a “near crash” prank, where she was made to believe the plane she was flying in was about to crash. Paris looked genuinely terrified. She reportedly was threatening to sue yesterday. Well, now it’s come out that she was in on the prank.
So here’s what happened. Paris boarded a plane in Dubai. During the flight, the plane appeared to suffer engine failure, and the pilot took the plane into a steep nose dive. Paris looked like she seriously thought she was going to die. I’ve got a video of the full prank below. It was for an Egyptian TV program called ‘Ramez in Control.’
Afterwards, Paris said the prank “went too far” and told people she was planning to sue the producers. Sources told TMZ she was “freaked out” about flying anywhere after that stunt. She claimed she had absolutely NO idea this was a prank and seriously thought she was going to die.
Well, the ‘Ramez in Control’ producers are striking back. They sent out offers to multiple American celebs to participate in the prank, offering them money for their participation. The document included the following:
We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we’ll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board.
“We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane.
“Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project.”
So it sounds like Paris was the celeb who agreed to participate in the prank. She reportedly was paid in the million dollar range. When TMZ photogs caught up with Paris, she claimed the producers went “too far.” Is it possible she knew what was going to happen but got genuinely scared during it? Drama, drama, drama. Here’s the full video of the prank. Grab a cup of coffee or tea: at 10 minutes long, it’s not a quick video!
