Does an apology really count if you say you're sorry for something you haven't even done yet? For this guy, apparently, it does — because when Chris Pratt issued a hilarious "pre-apology" for his upcoming world press tour for Jurassic World that has him covered in the event that he offends anyone, it was so amusing, it definitely counts. In a message posted to his Facebook page on Friday, Pratt wrote, "I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming #JurassicWorld press tour." He continued, "I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I'm the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s)." Based on Chris Pratt’s prank-pulling history, his message definitely sounds like an extended way of saying, “I’m totally going to start some trouble. Sorry, not sorry in advance," — meaning I am officially so excited for this press tour now.
Honestly, after everything we've seen from Pratt in Hollywood over the past few years, I’d be surprised if, during this upcoming press tour, he successfully resisted the urge to pull a joke on an unsuspecting reporter, a fan, a fellow actor, or even his wife Anna Farris. After all, he totally owes her for the huge fake arrest stunt she pulled on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. With all of Pratt’s pranking experience, he’s clearly the type of person who won’t pass up the opportunity to play a good joke. Something tells me this list of Pratt’s best pranks to date will be even longer when he’s done with press for Jurassic World:
The Time He Pranked His Own Kid On Ellen
Poor kid. But, if this kid inherits Pratt's penchant for pulling pranks, he'll probably dedicate his life to getting revenge on his father.
When He Photobombed Unsuspecting Super Bowl Fans
As a part of The Tonight Show, Pratt joined Chris Evans and Jimmy Fallon in probably the best series of photobombs ever.
When He Totally Misled Potential Employees With A "Creative" Job Posting
Before Pratt got his start in acting, he sold coupons for a living. When he decided to hire a team, the post... well, it wasn't exactly a prank, but the joke was definitely on the applicants who thought they were about to live like a bunch of rock stars.
The Time He Pretended To Be A God While Working At A Drive-In Theater
During an appearance on The Tonight Show, Pratt revealed told Jimmy Fallon that, at a mere 14 years old, he was already a professional prankster in the making.
