Travis Kelce remembered his girlfriend Taylor Swift getting pranked on MTV’s ‘Punk’d’ in 2012 and said he ‘bought’ the practical joke at the time.

In the episode, fellow singer-songwriter Justin Bieber invited a then 22-year-old Swift to a beach house in Malibu to work on music. During her visit, Bieber and Swift set off fireworks by the water.

The punch line came when they made it appear that Swift set off a firework that caused a boat to catch ablaze while housing a wedding.

‘I’ll see if she was trying to sell it or not,’ Kelce told comedian Andrew Santino, who participated in the prank, on New Heights. ‘When I saw it, I bought it.’

‘There was a wedding party [on board],’ Santino recalled. ‘I was the groom, and we were dinghy-ed to shore with our boat on fire, and we blamed her for ruining our wedding.’

While Kelce said: ‘I’ve got to ask Tay about it,’ Santinto insisted that Swift ‘bought it.’ Santino also labeled the prank ‘the perfect bit that worked.’

During the bit, Swift looked genuinely concerned and began comforting the ‘bride’, thinking she had just caused the celebration to end in disaster. 

After finding out it was all a prank, Swift said it was ‘incredibly traumatic and brilliant,’ after telling Bieber: ‘You’re the worst.’

‘Some of the bits were so wild they didn’t work,’ Santino added. ‘But hers was specifically great because there were so many pieces that came together. They don’t always come together like that.’

As for whether the 14-time Grammy winner plans to get Bieber back for the experience, Swift told CMT Insider then that she was not ‘really that girl.’

‘He’s too smart. I’d never be able to punk him. Like, he’d figure it out, then turn the tables on me, and then it would be Justin 2, Taylor 0.’
