We're Floored: Amy Schumer and Her Trainwreck Cohorts Spoof Her Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Red Carpet Prank

Amy Schumer sure leaves people floored.
The funnylady and her rowdy Trainwreck cohorts paid homage to Schumer’s notorious red carpet prank on Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West at the TIME 100 Gala this past spring. Only this time, the tables were turned – with Schumer standing in smug, blasé insouciance as she towered over a face-plant-gone-goofy.
It all went down – literally – on Tuesday at a photo call in Berlin for Trainwreck (which apparently translates to Dating Queen for the film’s release in Germany).
The accomplices? Trainwreck director Judd Apatow – who played Kanye to Schumer’s Kim – and costar Vanessa Bayer, who slipped into Schumer’s face-planting role.
Of course, it’s tough to top the original red carpet shocker: Schumer hogged headlines when she took a dive at the TIME 100 Gala in front of Kim and Kanye, who barely flinched.
“All the reporters were going crazy and it was Kim and Kanye, just standing there, owning it, being short and important,” Schumer told the Graham Norton Show. “And I think falling is the funniest thing, so I took a dive in front of them.”
She later told PEOPLE, “I asked my publicist, ‘Can I dive in front of them and act like I fell?’ And she said, ‘I can’t stop you.’ ”
Hey, Schumer certainly knows how to plunge head-first into a challenge.
