This BBC America clip from this year’s Britannia Awards featuring world famous prankster Sacha Baron Cohen is understood as an obvious setup by veteran Internet viewers.
After being bestowed with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy, Sacha accepted Charlie Chaplin’s cane as a gift from an elderly woman in a wheel chair who was introduced as the oldest living actor to have worked with Chaplin himself.
Sacha then broke out into a Charlie Chaplin inspired tap dance, fell forward after breaking the cane, and harshly knocked the elderly woman in the wheelchair off stage!
Attendees were horror struck, as they apparently had no idea it was setup.
Now the clip has instantly gone viral!
