In a scene from his new candid-camera program “Juiced,” O.J. Simpson pulls a prank involving the infamous white Bronco, drawing criticism from the family of a man he was accused of killing. As part of the pay-per-view show, Simpson pretends to sell the Bronco at a used car lot and boasts to a prospective buyer that he made the vehicle famous, according to a segment aired Thursday on “Inside Edition.” “It was good for me — it helped me get away,” Simpson said, referring to the slow-speed, televised police chase that preceded his 1994 arrest on charges of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

EVER-tasteful O.J. Simpson pretends to sell his infamous white Ford Bronco in his hidden-camera prank DVD, “Juiced,” a rip-off of Ashton Kutcher’s MTV mainstay “Punk’d.” Simpson pretends to sell the Bronco at a used car lot, telling the prospective buyer, “It was good for me – it helped me get away. It’s a car that I personally made famous. The car has escapability, if you ever get into some trouble.” In other none-too-side-splitting stunts on the yet-to-be released DVD, the double-murder acquitee poses as a rapper, an elderly white man in a bingo game for senior citizens, a windshield-washer and a pizza delivery man.
That O.J. is one funny guy. There was the classic turn as Nordberg in the “Naked Gun” movies. Then the hilarious hijinks in trying to get that glove on. And who could forget “I’m going to look for the real killer?” Now this.
