Gérald Dahan drops the masks
Behind the scenes of my pranks
Stunning and hilarious! With the voice of Nicolas Sarkozy, then Minister of the Interior, I call a deputy: — There's a smart guy – his name is Gérald Dahan – who has taken it into his head to trap as many politicians as possible. Let me make you aware so that we are no longer so easily trapped. - Oh good ?! But how are we going to do it? 'Listen, now when a minister calls a deputy, there will be a password, and if he doesn't have it, it's not him. And this password will be “Raffarin, dog's head”. Every week, every Tuesday, I called back deputies: — Hello, it's Nicolas. "Hello Minister. And Raffarin? - Bah ! Dog head ! - There, at least, we know it's you! Last week, twice, there was a guy who tried to impersonate you. He didn't have the password. I didn't get fooled… Later, I learned that some deputies were no longer able to talk to each other in the Assembly. Those who didn't have the code asked those who were supposed to have it. It was hell ! Nadine Morano, Zinédine Zidane, Nicolas Sarkozy, Ségolène Royal, Patrick Bruel, Olivier Falorni: more than 150 personalities, politicians and people, were the victims of Gérald Dahan, revealing their true face to the public. Today he tells us the tricks of his trade and behind the scenes of his hoaxes, also raising the question of censorship and the societal role of the comedian.
