    Default pull a somebody

    teachers,

    Yesterday when I was watching tonight show. One thing confuses me. The guy interviewed got a new set of fake teeth, which are better than his nature ones. He said,

    "I pulled a Ben Affleck, blahblah..."

    What does "pull somebody" mean?

    thanks :D
