Watch Rihanna Expertly Prank A Sleeping Jimmy Kimmel

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The only human cool enough to pull off an April Fools' Day prank (and also crop tops, metal-studded anything, and platform shoes) is Rihanna. Below, watch as she wakes up a mouthguard-wearing Jimmy Kimmel from a deep sleep. Her one-man-audience is a little too chill for someone getting a personal Rihanna concert on top of his bed...

Please keep an eye out for the uncredited tinsel-wearing kid in the back (pictured in the above screenshot), who is probably a Jimmy Kimmel show intern.
