Sacha Baron Cohen Dupes O.J. Simpson In ‘Who Is America?’ Finale

Who Is America

Who Is America

The latest episode of Sacha Baron Cohen's prank show, Who Is America? Who Is America? produced some truly astounding moments (the gun-training-for-kids segment glimpsed at the top of this piece, the jaw-dropping sequence wherein Jason Spencer screamed the N-word before running around a sweaty little boxing gym with his trousers around his ankles), but the final product was uneven at best, and felt toothless at worst.

But on the finale episode ever, he tried to land the biggest confession of the century - by trying to get OJ Simpson to 'fess up to the 1994 murder of his ex-wife.

For a mid-credits segment, Cohen slipped in a conversation between Gio Monaldo - his aggressively unfunny, super-rich-Italian-playboy character - and O.J. Simpson. The fact that OJ wanted to partake in such a petty show is already enough to make a "Who Is America" fan put down her viewing snacks in distaste. "She knows that? Oh, Jesus, help me", said Simpson in response. Simpson about the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.

"I didn't kill nobody!" he says. The clip ended abruptly, but judging from Simpson's body language and repeated requests for Cohen to "stop", it's safe to assume that at some point it was all too much for Simpson. "You're not O.J. the movie star", he said.

His sensational show "Who is America?" continues to fill us with immeasurable nachas (and anxiety.) He strategically chose notorious figures to target with sly barbs and sharp-edged guile.

Newcastle boss Benitez hits back at pundits over Chelsea tactics
Newcastle equalised in a rare attack in the 83rd minute when Joselu headed in a cross from DeAndre Yedlin , who appeared to elbow Olivier Giroud in the build-up.

"We want you to be 100% truthful about how you got away with it", Cohen said.

Simpson immediately denied Cohen's accusation, saying, "No, I didn't kill nobody". (Morad suggests they say season two's "Bad Friend", but the correct answer is season three's "Beach House.") Naturally, the auditions end with the guys violating a dummy Donald Trump with dildos. "We both, how you say, lady killers?" the British comic, who was in disguise as an alter-ego Gio Monaldo, said to the disgraced football player.

The Palin interview never aired on the series with no explanation as to why it was cut from Cohen.

Cohen's character then proceeded to give Simpson a high-five.
