No matter what they are famous for, it’s not uncommon to see celebrities hang out. They can relate to each other probably more than any of us truly understand. So while it wasn’t a huge surprise to see country music superstar Luke Bryan invite Jimmy Butler and Meyers Leonard of the Miami Heat to his house, what happened was a shock to everyone.
The night in Tennessee started out relatively simple and normal. The country star, his sons, and the two basketball players practiced their archery skills with a compound bow outside.
Then, everyone went inside Bryan’s home for dinner and funny prank was waiting inside.
As part of their respective diets, Butler was not eating meat and Leonard only wanted turkey. So country star Luke Bryan’s wife, Caroline Bryan, brought in the family’s pet turkey, Juanita, to surprise the NBA duo and post it all on social media.

Needless to say, it worked. Leonard didn’t have a huge reaction, but Butler took off running. He wasn’t having it at all.
“We’re organic,” Caroline Bryan said laughing.
This is all part of the couple’s “12 Days of Prankmas” they are pulling off this holiday season. The family has pranked Bryan’s mom, LeClaire and shoppers at a store using a mannequin, but getting someone like Jimmy Butler scared of a turkey was truly next level.
The Miami Heat lost to the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, and it’s safe to say Butler will definitely be more prepared the next time he visits the country singer and his family.
