Mark Wahlberg’s family helped get him extra messy during Nickelodeon’s 27th Kids’ Choice Awards, held Saturday in Los Angeles.
Wahlberg, who hosted the event, was standing onstage near the end of the show when he introduced his wife Rhea and three of their children – Ella, Michael and Brendan. Comedian Kevin Hart happened to be located nearby.
“Kevin, what are you doing sitting near my family?” Wahlberg asked, drawing a chuckle from Hart.
“Your kids are hilarious, man, they were just telling me a joke. I can’t stop laughing,” Hart responded.
Wahlberg wanted to hear the joke. His daughter Ella started telling a knock-knock joke.
The “Departed” star decided to play along. “Who’s there?”
“We got,” she said.
We got who?
“We got you!” she said. Hart screamed into the microphone, and the green slime fell from the rafters, raining on Wahlberg as he lowered his head, smirking. The slime poured for 30 seconds, “just like a bird dropping stuff on your head,” Hart said.

Jamie Foxx and Kevin Hart are in talks to star in Screen Gems’ “Black Phantom,” with “Ride Along” helmer Tim Story in discussions to direct.
If a deal makes, the film would reteam Hart and Story with their “Ride Along” producer Will Packer, who is producing the pic along with Will Gluck. Packer has long wanted to do the film and, after the success of “Ride Along” and Foxx’s interest to work with Hart, the project seemed like the perfect match for all four men.
Story follows a double-crossed mob hitman who enlists the help of the Black Phantom, the same African-American hitman who had been sent to kill him.
