The Masked Avengers! – A comedy duo from Montreal pranked Sarah Palin by pretending to be the President of France Nicolas Sarkozy. Marc-Antoine Audette, one half of the duo, called from radio station CKOI and got through to Palin after trying for days. During the 6-minute conversation, Marc dropped a ton of hints that she was being punk’d. He told Sarah that he loves hunting and killing animals is fun! He also used fake names for Canadian politicians. He also told her that his wife Carla Bruni was “good in bed” and had written a song about Joe the Plumber. He even sang a few notes and Palin still stayed on the line. Seriously, they should release that song. It would totally become a #1 hit here in the US.
Finally, Marc as Sarkozy told Palin that he enjoyed watching her “edgy” documentary called “Nailin’ Paylin.” She thanked him by saying, “Ooh. Good. Thank you, yes.” And when Marc felt she had enough, he told her she had been served by the Masked Avengers! She giggled it off and immediately gave the phone to her assistant.
Marc told the press that fooling Palin was their biggest triumph! In the past, they have also pranked Mick Jagger, Brit Brit Spears, Bill Gates and Sarkozy.
Palin’s people said she was “mildly amused to learn that she had joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy, and other celebrities in being targeted by these pranksters.”
This would be so much better if furry puppets were re-enacting the phone call. I’m sure someone’s going to make that happen. You know that by the end of the day, there will be hundreds of “dramatizations” of this shit!
