David Walliams and Little Mix star Perrie Edwards appear to have been pranked into auditioning for a fake Borat sequel.
YouTubers Josh Pieters and Archie Manners managed to convince celebrities, also including Jimmy Carr, David Spade, Ann Widdecombe and Towie’s James Argent, to say lines from a fake script in an attempt to land a role.
Josh shared the clip, made in collaboration with Amazon, on Twitter on Monday – a few days after the release of the Borat sequel starring Sacha Baron Cohen was released on Amazon Prime.
Explaining the elaborate prank, which included fully written ‘Borat 3’ scripts sent to each celeb’s agents, Archie told Insider: ‘We didn’t just want it to be really silly and laughing at people doing bad auditions.
‘But also you get to see and enjoy some world-class acting from David Walliams and imagine him in that role as the ambassador of Kazakhstan.’
The pair revealed that all the celebrities involved knew that the movie would see them playing tricks on an unsuspecting public.
Josh and Archie previously made headlines when they pranked Katie Hopkins by getting her to fly to Prague to collect a fake award.
They also made Tiger King star Carole Baskin believe she was being interviewed by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, and pranked Love Island stars Tommy Fury and Molly Mae Hague into thinking they were speaking to James Corden on his show.
