Before giving an impressive performance at the TIME 100 Gala in New York Tuesday (April 21), Kanye West, along with his wife Kim Kardashian, was on the receiving end of a prank from comedian Amy Schumer.

While the famous couple was walking the red carpet, the 33-year-old Inside Amy Schumer star took a tumble right at their feet, which was all in jest. Schumer says she decided to play the gag on the couple at the very last second.

"I just dove right down," she told PEOPLE. "I talked to them. They were like, 'What?' Kim was worried for me, and I think Kanye was just, like scared that I was doing something. They were really sweet. Kim was really funny. She goes, 'Oh my God, I was like, does this girl need help?' She was like 'That was really funny.'"

However, West didn't seem impressed and simply walked by the comedian, never cracking a smile at the joke.

Before taking a spill, Schumer discussed the prank with her publicist, who gave her the green light. It was just something she had to do since she was in front of one of the most famous couple's in the world. "They were right there," Schumer explained. "The epicenter of American. Gotta do it. It was the best."
