Sacha Baron Cohen is best known for his characters Ali G and Borat, and has now struck the gun industry with his new series called Who Is America?
Among those interviewed by Cohen disguised as Israeli Col. Erran Morad, an anti-terror expert, were Virginia Citizens Defense League President Philip Van Cleave and Executive Director Emeritus of Gun Owners Of America, Larry Pratt.
One person who was invited for the program, but had suspicions and did not fall for the fiasco, was Rob Pincus of Personal Defense Network. An AmmoLand.com article describes what happened back in February when this first came to everyone’s attention.
I watched a total of 3 times to try and determine if I could see myself falling victim to the situation, and I just couldn’t. I am still trying to wrap my head around it.
Give the video a watch above or below, and share your thoughts.
There will be much more on this story in the coming days, I am certain.
