we have the APEC summit happening here in Sydney at the moment, with all the heads of all the Asia and Pacific countires out here (including Bush). All the streets around where the meetings are being held are FENCED off, and there is a total lockdown in the area
We have a television comedy show called the Chaser's War on Everything. They like to try and talk their way into places they aren't supposed to be able to get into. It's a kinda comedy show, kinda like the Daily Show with Jonh Stewart.
This is their latest stunt
"ABC show Chasers War on Everything cast were arrested today after their cavalcade rolled through the heaviest security operation this country has ever seen.
The troope were only stopped when Osama Bin Laden jumped out of their car and started prancing about."
Embarrassed New South Wales police say a comedy team responsible for an elaborate prank that penetrated APEC security risked being shot at.
Comedians from Australia's ABC television organised a mock motorcade carrying a fake Osama Bin Laden that came within metres of President George Bush's hotel.
Funny for some, but not to police, who have charged eleven people over the prank.
The pranksters from hit TV show The Chaser's War on Everything took a bogus three car motorcade past the tightest security screen Australia's ever seen.
The cars were waved through two checkpoints, fooling police all the way to the president's hotel until one of the actors stepped out dressed as Osama Bin Laden.
Eight ABC employees and three hire car drivers have been arrested and charged with entering a security zone.
The Chaser team often target politicians, earlier this week they pursued Australia’s Labour Party leader Kevin Rudd with a stripper.
If police feel any embarrassment over the serious breach of their security system, they are not admitting it.
"11 people have been arrested,” said a police spokesman. “I offer my congratulations to those police officers for their diligent work."
A source inside The Chaser's War on Everything revealed the team had never expected to get so far.
The skit had been approved by ABC lawyers, but it had been assumed they would be stopped at the first checkpoint, hundreds of metres from the President's hotel.
