Last week, two Russian pranksters who go by ‘Vovan and Lexus’ posted a video of the time they prank-called Justin Trudeau while pretending to be Greta Thunberg.

Despite having met Greta in real life, it took Trudeau just about 10 minutes of conversation to realize that he wasn’t talking to the real Greta Thunberg.

This isn’t the first time that Vovan and Lexus have successfully duped a world leader. Their expansive list of victims includes Boris Johnson, Emmanuel Macron, and even the former President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachov.

But past the laughs, the success of these pranks raises real questions about the influence that media figures can have on our top politicians and, with enough media clout, prove that casual access to our world leaders is surprisingly easy.
