A Canadian comedy team known as the Masked Avengers successfully prank called Sarah Palin, who believed that she was speaking with Nicholas Sarkozy, the president of France. The pair is famous for making prank phone calls to world leaders and celebrities.
In Sarah Palin’s defense, this duo is famous for these pranks. Past victims include Britney Spears, Bill Gates, Queen Elizabeth II, and former French president Jacques Chirac. You can listen to them prank calling Arnold Schwarzenegger here.
The McCain/Palin campaign is having a sense of humor about the call:
“Gov. Palin received a phone call on Saturday from a French Canadian talk show host claiming to be French President Nicholas Sarkozy,” emailed spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt. “Gov. Palin 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. C’est la vie.”
