"He comes in, off the bat you can see in the video I'm looking like, this guy does not look like an Hungarian immigrant". "The moment his words came out of his mouth I was like this guy is full of s-t".

For the most part, Mr. Cohen is pretty good at tricking people for the sake of comedy and faux-documentaries, but in February 2017, a gun store owner wasn't fooled. "Sadly for me, I'm sure I'm going to be in whatever insane film finally comes out, looking really stupid and, just as sadly, I'll probably be in good company". "And I just kept looking at the guy, and I was like, 'You're Borat'".

In the strongest segment of the pilot for Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime satirical series, "Who Is America?", Cohen, disguised as an Israel "anti-terror expert", convinces conservative politicians and gun-rights advocates to endorse a program that would arm American toddlers with guns.

Sweidan told the station he believes his store was targeted because it's well known and in the process of launching a pilot show called Down the Barrel.

He says he immediately understood that Cohen was "full of shit".

"Once I knew it was Borat, we already know his game and his bulls-, so we knew he's here to make a mockery, and of what?"

Sweidan told Fox 11 that producers claimed they were making a film about a Hungarian immigrant. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizen Defense League, is featured playing along to a so-called training video that includes guns dressed up to look like stuffed animals. "Baron Cohen did not present himself as a disabled veteran, and viewers nationwide who watched the premiere on Sunday can now attest to that".

The brand new satirical half-hour Showtime series, which Baron Cohen wrote and directed, has been in the works over the past year. "If you're a gun advocate, what the f*** are you doin' holding a gun with a bunny on it?"

Sacha Baron Cohen in disguise trying to trick a gun store owner. She challenged Baron Cohen and Showtime to donate proceeds from the show to a veterans' charity. "They want a real story?"

Showtime told FOX 11 the company has no comment in response to this report.
