Ashton Kutcher pranks Australian shoppers

Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher revived the tactics of his practical joke show Punk'd to go undercover and prank shoppers in Sydney, Australia.

Kutcher, who hosted the hidden-camera show for four years, donned a wig, glasses and a cap to blend in as a worker at an electronics store as part of a stunt to promote a new tablet device.


The actor put on an Australian accent as he attempted to sell the Lenovo gadgets to unsuspecting customers, offering a group of men the chance to arm-wrestle him for one of the tablets and even smooching an elderly woman in a bid to get her to buy one.


The footage, which was captured on hidden cameras, has since emerged online.
