Kevin Hart Majorly Pranks Nick Cannon by Posting His Phone Number on Giant Billboards Across the Country

We've got our fair share of Hollywood pranksters. Whether it's Ryan Reynolds trolling the queen or Taraji P. Henson scaring her friends, there are plenty of celebrities who love to play jokes on one another.

The latest duo to engage in a prank war is Kevin Hart and Nick Cannon. It all started earlier this month, when Nick Cannon sent Kevin Hart a llama as a birthday gift, with a message that said, “I love you man!!! I’m having all these new kids I figured you should have a new kid too!! Welcome Lucky The Llama to the family!! #SaveTheDrama4YourLlama.”

Well, it looks like Hart has returned the favor with an even more epic stunt. Back when Hart received the llama, he said to Cannon, “You have out done yourself this time buddy. Birthday war pranks are on and I swear to God you have no idea what you’re in store for.” And it seems like he delivered on that promise.

The Fatherhood actor decided to get back at Cannon by putting up a billboard with his personal phone number printed across it. Hart shared the billboard to his Instagram, saying, “Since my brother @nickcannon decided to buy me a lama for my B Day I decided to do something nice for him as well….Here is a digital billboard in Los Angeles….I also did some in ATL & NY….if u want any advice on fatherhood please call my BEST FRIEND @nickcannon ….I’m sure his phone has been ringing nonstop...#PRANKWARS.”

Hart's billboard reads, “For any advice on fatherhood ? Call my best friend Nick Cannon. Hey guys! Here is his cell # 323-509-0988.”

And if you're wondering if that's actually Cannon's number, it appears that it is. The Masked Singer host shared a screenshot of Hart's billboard and said, “My phone won't stop ringing!!!” He also shared videos to his Story of fans making FaceTime calls to his phone and he wrote “I hate @kevinhart4real.”

Now we can't wait to see how Cannon retaliates...
