Governor Sarah Palin Prank Called by Fake French President


Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel prank-called Governor Sarah Palin yesterday pretending to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Not only did Palin's aide hand off the call but Palin stayed on the phone conversing for six minutes before the duo revealed to her that she had been fooled.

When fake Sarkozy told her he hoped she would be president one day, Palin replied: "Haha, maybe in eight years."

Palin also responded to a compliment on heer hunting abilities: "Oh, very good, we should go hunting together. I think we could have a lot of fun together as we're getting work done. We could kill two birds with one stone that way."

While the fake Sarkozy asks her if she's married to Joe the Plumber and tells her that "We have the equivalent of Joe the Plumber in France. It's called Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit," Palin does not pick up on the joke.

Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs remarked on the call, saying, "I'm glad we check out our calls before we hand the phone to Barack Obama."

Listen to the call, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Ugh. There are no words. Oh wait. I have one. Moron. Idiot. Stupide.

    Oh yes, and OUR POTENTIAL NEXT PRESIDENT if you don't get out and VOTE ON NOV 4!

    Vote NO ON PROP 8, NO on Amendement 2 (FL) and NO on Amendment 102 (AZ)!

  2. American elections are still such a joke that even the Canadians are getting in on the act.

  4. Special adviser Johnny Halliday! Hustler's Nailin'Palin! Priceless!

    I'm betting someone got BIG trouble for passing that call over to her. :)

  6. Yes, she's a fool. But Sarkozy fell for the same prank not too long ago.

    Does this really have to be what our elections are about?

  10. Hell yeah us Canucks are in on the joke. Take a ride on any streetcar and you'll hear people yapping about the election. People are walking around wearing Obama T-Shirts and buttons. It's kinda great.

  11. she's a one tick pony... just as uncomfortable and uninformed in this conversation as any interview. treading water and ass kissing. and the "first dude" would probably enjoy a 3-way with Bruni.....

  17. I just spit tea out my nose. It is amazing that they do not screen her calls more carefully, then there is the fact that this idiot could be so clueless and even be a heartbeat away from the leader of the free world. VOTE tomorrow.

  18. So funny! I love it that she has no idea who the prime minister of Canada is.

  19. Alaska has a 1500 mile border with one country, and only one country: Canada.

    Palin doesn't know who the prime minister of Canada is.....

  20. @A.J.,

    he would also say, "what an embezzle!", which would me more accurate.

  21. As much as I wanted to laugh at this, it was really dull. I'm sure I would have been fooled as well. The only part that was mildly amusing was the end when the hoax was revealed and Palin asked "What are the call letters of this station?" Canadian humor must be similar to her people, way too nice.
