Pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov posted the prank call on Thursday saying they recorded it December but waited to release it.
Russian pranksters called U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders pretending to be climate activist Greta Thunberg and offered Thunberg’s support to his campaign.
Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, who have fooled many high-profile victims around the world, most recently being Maxine Waters, posted a recording of the phone call on YouTube on Thursday.
The call itself took place in early December, but the duo decided to release it more than two months later because of Sanders’ success in Iowa and New Hampshire, Kuznetsov told the Associated Press in a Skype interview.
In the recording, an unnamed female pretends to be Greta, and Stolyarov plays her father, Svante.
‘Greta’ proposes to record ‘a cool rap’ song in support of Sanders together with ‘singer Billie Eilish and rapper Kanye West.’
‘If we want to make the video successful, we need to put there a lot of expensive cars, and girls,’ says ‘Greta’.
‘And you need to wear gold jewelry and chains, it will be nice,’ she adds.
