Before Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime series Who Is America? premiered last Sunday night, the notorious prankster shared a preview clip that appeared to show former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney getting tricked into signing a waterboard kit for the show.
Now, before the second episode airs Sunday night, it seems the show has put the signed waterboard kit up for sale on eBay. Featuring new photos of the kit, a charity listing has appeared on the auction site under the title, "ORIGINAL WATER BOARD KIT SIGNED BY VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY!!"
The language in the listing is written in the voice of the character that Cohen plays on the show. "Boker Tov, my name Colonel Erran Morad," it begins. "Here is a rare opportunity to own a WATER BOARD BOTTLE SIGNED BY the Godfather of the sport – American war hero and all-around mensch, VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY."
"Unlike the cheap domestic water board kits you can buy on Amazon, this is a professional grade piece of military hardware," the eBay listing continues. "Fully functioning, it have seen many hours active use by me, both on the frontline of the War on Terror and also in my own home, where it has proved very effective at keeping my son, Eyal, in line. Indeed, if you too live in a bungalow, waterboarding is a great alternative to the 'naughty step.' The bottle is made from Military Grade High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), meaning that as well as Water Boarding, it can also be used to Dr. Pepper Board, Clorox Board or even Urine Board potential terrorists or annoying neighbors."
100 percent of the proceeds of the auction will go to Amnesty International U.S.A. As of 7:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, the highest bid is already over $1,000.
Saturday, Cohen shared another preview clip from the upcoming second episode, in which he asks Cheney to choose his favorite war out of all the conflicts the Bush administration started. "Oh, I think it was what we did in Desert Storm," Cheney responded. See the clip below and catch the full episode on Showtime at 10:00 p.m. ET on Sunday night.
