Marc Antoine Audette, a Canadian comedian, has decided to make a prank call to none other than the Republican candidate for vice-president, Sarah Palin.
He telephoned the Alaska Governor and pretended to be the French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, calling to congratulate her for the campaign and wish her good luck at the elections.
The six-minute talk was then broadcast on a radio programme in Montreal, Canada.
During their chat, Mrs Palin and fake President Sarkozy talked about several issues, such as how beautiful Carla Bruni (the President’s wife) was, how nice it would be to be able to organize a hunting trip together; they even joked about the prospect of Mrs Palin running for presidency eight years from now.
Mrs Palin has made no comments on this call but one of her spokespersons has declared the governor was somewhat amused by it.
