Sacha Baron Cohen's cringeworthy meeting with O.J. Simpson

Sacha Baron Cohen's cringeworthy meeting with O.J. Simpson

Sacha Baron Cohen's "Who Is America?" delivered just one of two highly anticipated celebrity guests in the hilarious and shocking finale Sunday night.

Sacha Baron Cohen has proven over his time on Who Is America that he's a man with a lot of balls.

O.J. Simpson has denied murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson in a spoof interview with prankster Sacha Baron Cohen.

In the clip, Cohen is dressed up as a character named Gio Monaldo, an eccentric Italian billionaire. When the woman can not identify Simpson, Cohen makes a stabbing motion. "I didn't know exactly what I thought was going to happen, but I was definitely panicking", she said.

Disguised at Gio Monaldo, the United Kingdom comic tries to get the former star to admit murder, and explains who he is to his "girlfriend" with a stabbing motion.

Simpson waved his hands "no" while laughing, and said, "No, I didn't kill nobody". It wasn't until Monaldo feigned a stabbing motion toward her neck that she recognized Simpson: "Oh mamma mia, O.J.", she said before extending her hand to greet him. You're not the O.J. the movie star.

"This should be immediately corrected", he added . " Pakistan takes exception to the factually incorrect statement issued by U.S. Pakistan and India can not be enemies while there is much that unites the two. "It takes two to tango", Qureshi said.

"What, you didn't kill him too, did you?"

This was the final episode of the series, but you can learn more by visiting the Who Is America? page at Showtime.com.

Someone who wasn't featured on the finale was former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who earlier this summer has spoken out about being tricked by Cohen. "We had been divorced", he said.

Monaldo then goes in for the kill - by telling Simpson he has a business partner who's obsessed with the decades-old double slaying with which he was acquitted. He then makes multiple references about murdering people and even name drops O.J.'s then-lawyer, Johnnie Cochran. "We both, how you say, 'ladykillers'". In the end, Palin got credit for her "inadvertent" work as a "Special Publicity Consultant" on the Showtime series. When Simpson didn't take the bait, Baron Cohen's Monaldo character had to be content with essentially calling Simpson a murderer continuously for a three minute stretch.
