Justin Bieber Pulled An EPIC April Fools' Day Joke On TMZ! All Hail The Prank King!

Justin Bieber played the best April Fools' Day prank on TMZ.

Justin Bieber pulled the BEST April Fools' Day prank on the paparazzi!

Justin Bieber hasn't exactly seen eye to eye with the paparazzi lately, so who could blame him for wanting to give them a taste of their own medicine? NO, we don't mean that Justin went after anyone with a camera, but he DID pull a HUGE prank on the paps in honor of April Fools' Day! (Anyone who's seen Justin's "Punk'd" appearances knows that JB is the Prank King -- just ask Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, or Sean Kingston if they're over theirs yet.) This time around, Justin traded in stars for star hunters by pranking the eff out of gossip and entertainment site TMZ. (That sound you hear is the collective cheering of everyone in Hollywood.)

Early Monday, Justin tweeted out (but later deleted), "As promised taking all fan phone calls TODAY at (888) 847 9869. Talk to u soon!" Well, as you could guess, the number did not lead to a Justin Bieber hotline like the pop star hotlines of yesteryear, but it was the number for TMZ's personal tip line. After sending this out to his nearly 37 million followers on Twitter, we could tell Justin was pleased with the prank's outcome:

Uh yeah, they did. And here, my friends, is yet ANOTHER example of why we should all hail Justin Bieber, the ultimate Prank King. ::Bows::
