Melbourne, Nov 2 : Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has become the victim of a prank phone call by a French-Canadian comedian posing as the French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Sebastien Trudel convinced the Alaska governor that she was speaking to Sarkozy, reports News.com.au
After Palin learnt that phone the call was a hoax, her campaign staff admitted she was 'mildly amused.'
The prank tag-team from Quebec, "Justicia masques,'' who have previously targeted heads of state and celebrities, posted the conversation on their website.
In the recording, Palin appeared unfazed by the fake president's thick French accent and some outrageous comments.
At one point, Trudel told Palin that he is following the US elections closely along with his special American advisor Johnny Hallyday - a famous French rock'n'roll singer.
When the fake president told Palin his wife Carla Bruni is "hot in bed,'' the Governor chuckled and complimented him for his "beautiful family.'' Palin also proffered to continue relations if she reaches the White House.
"We should go hunting together,'' Palin said.
At another point, Trudel told Palin: "I see you as a president one day, too."
Palin replied: "Maybe in eight years."
