Harvick pranks PR rep in super awkward interview
Harvick makes an easy interview especially rough on green PR rep

Kevin Harvick, what are some qualities in your pizza that you expect out of your race car?

It's probably difficult to answer an insane question like that, right?

Try being the one asking it.

That's what happened to Harvick's JR Motorsports public relations rep Tyler Overstreet, who was punked by the most recent NASCAR Nationwide Series winner.

In an interview that was supposed to be conducted by NASCAR on FOX reporter Matt Yocum -- for a hearty, but fake compensation of a year's worth of free Hunt Brothers Pizza -- Overstreet had to fill in after Yocum's "boss" called moments before the interview was set to begin to tell him he couldn't do it as part of his contract.

The "boss" was Mike Davis, who runs communications for Dale Earnhardt Jr. and set up this whole prank.

Overstreet -- who was visibly shaken at this point-- was then handed a set of questions to ask Harvick, most of which made no sense at all.

The best one? It might just be, "What's more likely to happen, Danica (Patrick) eats one piece of pizza or Tony Stewart eats a whole pizza?"

Watch the video below to see how Overstreet handles the awkward interview and how the whole crew reacts when he finally realized he's being pranked.
