Sacha Baron Cohen Tricks Gun Lobbyists into Citing Blink-182, Cardi B
"Children under five also have elevated levels of the pheromone Blink-182, produced by the part of the liver known as the Rita Ora"
Published Jul 16, 2018Sacha Baron Cohen has been ruffling some right-wing feathers with his new show Who Is America?, which premiered last night (July 15) on Showtime. Hilariously, he worked in references to a few music stars during a segment about gun control.
In the clip, Cohen goes undercover wearing makeup (seen above). He poses as a pro-gun activist and dupes a few lobbyists into saying some truly ridiculous things about guns. At one point, he gets Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America to read a script about arming children. Pratt said:
Children under five also have elevated levels of the pheromone Blink-182, produced by the part of the liver known as the Rita Ora. This allows nerve reflexes to travel along the Cardi B neural pathway to the Wiz Khalifa 40 percent faster, saving time and saving lives.
Watch the clip below.
Previously, politician Sarah Palin and right-wing radio host Joe Walsh both said that Cohen tricked them into granting interviews.
