Fake Jesse Ventura questions Franken on MPR
A fake Jesse Ventura made it on-air today during a Minnesota Public Radio interview with Senate DFL candidate Al Franken. He was able to ask Franken a question, but anyone who's heard Ventura speak knows this isn't the guy.
Listen to the clip after the jump.
How can you tell it's not the former governor? The first time he says "Minnesota" he gets the Ventura pronunciation wrong, so he overcompensates the second time he says it.
Good try, dude. It was good enough to get you on air as Ventura, but it's not very funny. If you get your moment on air as "The Body" you should probably make it worth it.
