Rebel Wilson pretended to have a “tragic accident” on the Pitch Perfect 3 set on Saturday, faking an injury for an April Fools’ Day prank. Check out the video below.

The third Pitch Perfect movie began filming in Atlanta earlier this year. Wilson is reprising her role as Fat Amy, and she’s apparently just as much a fan of jokes off-screen as she is on. With the cast and crew gathered on the production lot, the Australian comedienne staged a fall down steps as she exited a trailer.

Wilson ended up lying on the concrete with what appeared to be a bloody gash on her leg (see photo). Colleagues rushed to her aid, only to discover she was pranking them. In footage of the aftermath, Wilson can be heard yelling out, “April Fools’!”

Laughs and even a little applause ensued. One person admitted their “heart stopped,” and it was said another looked like she was “having a heat attack.” Thankfully, Wilson was just fine, and quite amused. She tweeted with the video, “Tragic accident on the set of Pitch Perfect 3! Happy April Fools Pitches x.”

Wilson also posted with the picture, “I just played the best April Fools gag on my crew with 1000 extras waiting inside!” Coincidentally, co-star Anna Kendrick had tweeted earlier, “Ah, April Fools. A day of knowing that if you are actually injured, no one will help you. #SafetyFirst #Worrier.” Click to see more celebrity April Fools’ Day tweets, and watch the video below.
