Professional prankster and impersonator, Sacha Baron Cohen, is back at it again. Following a hilariously successful season of Who Is America? – where the comedian pranked some of the top government officials in the Trump administration – there are rumours he could be returning to the screen. Last week, former New York City Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was called to what he believed was a legitimate meeting on COVID-19. Cohen however, had another idea in mind.
According to Page Six, Cohen was seen bursting into the Mark Hotel where the meeting was taking place wearing a pink lace bikini, yelling and screaming before running out again. Giuliani was so startled, he called the police.
“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani told the publication, after the incident. “It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive.”
“I only later realised it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”
Despite calling law enforcement, Giuliani admitted he was a fan of Cohen. Showtime nor Cohen have released a statement on the incident which could indicate a second season of Who Is America? And amid these uncertain COVID-19 times, there will be truly nothing like it.
Stay tuned for further developments as the happen. In the meantime, tune in to a Season 1 clip below for further insight into the comedic series.
