When you are a celebrity, you always need to be on your guard. You never know when you are going to get pranked.
The poor girls from AKB48 found out about this the hard way.
On a Japanese prank program, the girls were invited for fake interviews, and to plug a nonexistent show called AKB Soul.
They were first put through a round of falling off broken chairs.
Next, they were face with chairs that had broken backrests.
The show even had an elaborate set-up for the third prank, where the girls were seated together at a conference table.
The bench then breaks, causing them to fall through the paper poster in the backdrop.
Lastly, they were pranked with spinning and moving chairs.
And just when they thought it was all over, they were made to sit on broken chairs, again.
Watch the video clip of the program below.
