Earlier this year, the cast of Star Trek Into Darkness were part of an international press blitz. They were getting the word out about their film and shared some behind-the-scenes dirt. One thing they always mentioned was the infamous  "Neutron Cream" prank. It was the brainchild of Simon Pegg, who tricked the entire cast into using a special (fake) emollient.

What started out as a friendly joke quickly snowballed and got out of control. The idea was that everyone had to put dots of cream on their faces to combat ions that could harm their system. Pegg even produced a fake contract for the actors to sign regarding the safety precautions. We would love to have been a fly on the wall for that.

Thankfully, after of months of waiting, fans can see what all the fuss was about. Watch as Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho and poor Benedict Cumberbatch get punk'd in the worst possible way.
