Paris Hilton might be an easy target for a prank, but an Egyptian TV show took things way too far recently while Hilton was flying over Dubai.
According to the Huffington Post, Hilton was in Dubai for a new hotel opening when she and several other passengers boarded a plane for an aerial tour of the city.
The show, called “Ramez in Control,” somehow convinced the pilot to pretend to stop the engine and take a nose dive toward the ground to stage a plane crash.

Hilton was understandably distraught, screaming and crying hysterically while the show captured it all on film. Warning: The footage is anything but a joke.
According to TMZ, Hilton was not in on the prank and said the situation was much worse than the video shows, with the plane almost hitting the water.
TMZ says the former reality TV star is looking to sue the show, and we don’t blame her.
