UN chief gets pranked by Quebec radio station
UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Former victims include Bill Gates, Mick Jagger, Britney Spears and Sarah Palin.
This week, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon joined the ranks of those pranked by a Quebec radio station, his office confirmed Friday.
Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel called Ban on Thursday afternoon and pretended to be Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
"He quickly realized it was a prank ... and he took it as it was intended: as a joke," said Eri Kaneko, associate spokeswoman for Ban's office.
Known as the Masked Avengers, the two are notorious for prank calls to celebrities and heads of state. The duo said the world's top diplomat was rushed out of an important meeting to speak to them.
