Palin Punked

For those who don't know, Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel are Quebec comedians working under the name of "Justiciers Masques." They make something of a comedy act out of placing fake phone calls to the rich and famous.

Saturday, they punked Sarah Palin by successfully impersonating French President Nicolas Sarkozy, with an improbably thick French accent no less, and misidentifying or dissing various celebrities, including Sarkozy's wife. In the process, Palin revealed new depths to her ignorance:
At one point the impersonator, comedian Marc Antoine Audette, told the Alaskan governor he is following the US elections closely along with his special American advisor Johnny Hallyday -- a famous French rock'n'roll singer.

When the fake president told Palin his wife Carla Bruni is "hot in bed," the governor chuckled and complimented him for his "beautiful family."

Palin also proffered to continue relations if she reaches the White House.

"We should go hunting together," Palin said.

Palin laughed in response to Audette's comment: "I just love killing those animals ... take away life, that is so fun!"

Wouldn't you know it? The entire phone call is now on YouTube:
