Booyakasha! Why did Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest prank almost go wrong? Culture

Name: Sacha Baron Cohen.

Years: 48)

Appearance: Bearded; wearing jumpsuit, plaid shirt and a straw hat; singing with a rather erratic American accent.

I guess this is his last character. You’re right. He has reportedly been filmed entertaining a right-wing audience at a March for our Rights 3 rally in Olympia, Washington.

What form did entertainment take? It is claimed that he sang a nice country number about the coronavirus as a hoax and other hot topics, and managed to get quite a sparse audience to sing along with the lyrics.

The sighting reported in Washington.

Low audience? Yes, the joke is that it was even more poorly attended than Trump’s average rally.

Are you going to give us a sample of the lyrics? You gamble. “Those who wear masks. What are we going to do? Inject them with the Wuhan flu. Journalists, what are we going to do? Cut them off like the Saudis do.

It sounds like a riot. It almost became one when organizers rumbled it: the lyrics were too far-fetched even for the pro-gun and anti-federal Washington government beardos. Baron Cohen (who has not yet confirmed that it was him) had to rush out in a private ambulance. Ileso, fortunately.

What was the purpose of the trick? As always, he’s being secretive about what the footage is for, but is it supposed to be used in the next Who Is America?

What is who is America? A satire show on Channel 4 and the American pay-TV network Showtime that received mixed reviews when it came out.

How disappointing. You’re right. It’s just that so much was expected that when it aired in 2018, it was kind of damp. However, the show does have its moments, especially the sequence in which Baron Cohen, in the role of Israeli anti-terrorism expert Colonel Erran Morad, instructs Republican politician Jason Spencer on how to spot terrorists.

How? By putting a selfie stick under someone wearing a burqa to check if it’s a real woman or a guy with explosives.

How did Spencer react? He bought the whole idea. He also used the N word, mocked the Chinese and exposed his buttocks when Morad told him that it was a tried and trusted technique to repel IS terrorists.

I guess this has not helped his political career.. He resigned from the Georgia House of Representatives.

Any other infamous jokes? Morad captivated gun enthusiasts with the idea of ​​arming a new generation of young children, known as “Kinderguardians,” to protect American schools.

Not to be confused with: Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno Gehard, Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen.

Say: “Baron Cohen is a genius and a fearless exponent of right-wing propaganda.”

Not say: “Yes” to an interview if you are approached by a man dressed in a wobbly accent.
