The Guardian seems moist:
Will Sacha Baron Cohen's undercover series be the TV event of the year?
49 seconds of my life wasted.
Who do I sue?
What does this mean?
That's 10% of a wank.
How much to sue depends on your going rate.
I haven't liked anything of his after Ali G.
I imagine Trump will get some airtime. Because he really, really needs it.
Baron Cohen 'dupes' Palin for new series
Palin, who asked for the proceeds from the programme to be donated to charity, added: "Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country. Truly sick."
Perhaps she should apply that outrage to her President, otherwise it comes across as a bit phoney.
Oh, THAT Palin. At first I thought it meant Michael Palin
Now that would cause outrage.
Even that had worn thin for me by the time the Ali g film rolled around
Has this idea not been absolutely flogged to death by now?
Baron-Cohen will continue to flog that particular dead horse for years...
In the US? Not sure. Maybe, as he's an unfamiliar face, he's able to get high profile people to see revealing things?
I'm looking forward to it!
This! x 87
I haven't liked anything he did since he left the sixform.
Come on, this is great
The Brothers Grimsby is brilliant and offensive.
Is duping someone without the intelligence to understand object permanence really an accomplishment?
I think they know him in the US from the borat movie.
That ali g film was really awful
IIRC i think he already did trump years ago as ali g and trump ended it pretty quickly.
Cohen's character has got his own conspiracy website. It's quite convincing.
There's a lot to read there!
Is it on this weekend? I'll no doubt give it a look.
The letter to Sarah Palin on the home page is worth reading.
It's on Channel 4 on Monday.
His targets in the US usually just show how gracious American people are. How about a tour of Russia.
EDIT - a much longer clip awaits on the next page of this thread, skip this one!
Reminds me of Brass Eye, Shatners Bassoon etc.
'Puppy pistol?' Utah gun rights activist says she was duped by Sacha Baron Cohen
I mean you think "who the hell can Sacha Baron Cohen actually fool now given that he's done it so many times" and, well, this seems to be the answer.
Separate names with a comma.
