Watch Sacha Baron Cohen Flee After Failing to Dupe Gun Store Owner

British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, whose show Who is America has gone viral for duping prominent Republicans including Sarah Palin and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher.

But one eagle-eyed gun store owner did not fall for Baron Cohen’s tricks.

Breitbart reports:

Sacha Baron Cohen entered a Riverside, California, gun store wearing a disguise then fled the scene after the gun store’s owner called him out.

Norris Sweidan owns Warrior One Guns & Ammo and he says Cohen entered his business disguised as a Hungarian immigrant last year.

Fox 11 quotes Sweidan saying, “He comes in, off the bat you can see in the video I’m looking like, this guy does not look like a Hungarian immigrant, tight ass leather pants, a beard, it just didn’t fit. The moment his words came out of his mouth I was like this guy is full of s***.”

He said Cohen had a camera crew with him and claimed to be filming a documentary, part of which would focus on him buying a gun.

Sweidan said, “I’m looking at the producer and I’m just like am I being fooled right here? And I just kept looking at the guy and I was like you’re Borat, as soon as I said that his eyes just looked at me like, and he did a turn right out the door.”
