ROFL: Someone played 'tok-tokkie' on Beyoncé and Jay-Z – and they found him!

Cape Town – In the early hours of the morning on Saturday, 25 July, a prank went horribly wrong on Briar Patch Road. 

Officers were called at 00:30 after a mysterious source told police a man had been lurking outside one of the Hamptons homes. "Police found him a few driveways away," reports The East Hampton Star police logs, after obtaining a photograph of the man. 

The man had reportedly told security guards he'd been invited to the home that belonged to Beyoncé of house Knowles and Carter – mother of Blue Ivy, breaker of records – and her husband, Jay-Z. It must have been a prank, he explained, after telling the police, he'd been sent there by a friend, looking for someone else. 

The man reportedly pushed the button before making a swift getaway in what appears to be a very high-profile and elaborate fan reenactment of an early 2000s Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd - or a game of 'tok-tokkie' that just went horribly wrong.
