Chiefs Fan Prank Calls C-SPAN During Serious Discussion About Using Drones to Fight Terrorism (Video)
On Monday, during a serious C-SPAN segment discussing the use of drones to combat terrorism, a Kansas City Chiefs fan from Lebanon, Missouri, pulled off a pretty amazing prank call.
The prankster calls himself “Gonzo,” probably after legendary tight end Tony Gonzalez. He maintains a serious tone throughout the call and starts off by mentioning Anwar al-Awlaki, who actually was an American-Yemeni terrorist killed by an American drone attack. However, after that it’s all Chiefs references.
First “Gonzo” refers to Laurent Duvernay-Tardif who, despite sounding like he might be some French terror suspect, is actually one of the Chiefs’ offensive tackles. Then he talks about “former UN member” Sabby Piscitelli, who of course is really the Chiefs’ free agent safety. And finally, at the end of his call, the caller drops all pretense and openly talks about how John Dorsey needs to pay linebacker Justin Houston more and draft a wide receiver.
Check it out:
Honestly, if someone were to write a textbook on the subject of prank calls, this Chiefs fan prank call would get its own chapter. It’s that good. Such composure, such eloquence. Who cares if nobody watches C-SPAN? Gonzo is a prank call legend.
