“I didn’t kill nobody,” former football star tells Cohen’s Italian photographer

Sacha Baron Cohen, masquerading as an Italian photographer, attempted to coax a murder confession out of O.J. Simpson on the final episode of Who Is America?

Posing as “Gio Monaldo,” Cohen’s character somehow managed to orchestrate a meeting with Simpson – as opposed to Cohen’s other victims where they knowingly embarrassed themselves, the actor employed a hidden camera – and, in the former NFL star’s presence, makes repeated jokes about killing a significant other.

“Maybe I send her on a bungee jump [makes a cutting motion] oops, the cord,” Monaldo joked about his ex-wife, with Simpson quipping back, “Cut the cord extra long. ‘Ohh, too long.'”

Monaldo first tried to explain who Simpson is to his Italian girlfriend, who doesn’t recognize him from NFL stardom and the Naked Gun series. However, after Monaldo made repeated stabbing motions, she makes the realization.

Monaldo then got to the business at hand: A wealthy individual would like to have a one-on-one meeting with Simpson. “He’s obsessed with what happened that night with the wife,” Cohen’s character told Simpson. “And he wants you to tell him.”

“Well, first of all, she wasn’t my wife. We had been divorced and separated for two years,” Simpson said. “I didn’t ‘get away’ with nothing.”

However, the awkward exchange didn’t yield a confession from Simpson. “I didn’t kill nobody,” he reiterated.

This season on Who Is America?, Cohen’s characters have conned Dick Cheney into signing a waterboard kit, convinced a pro-gun advocate into biting a dildo, revealed Sheriff Joe Arpaio into saying he would accept a blowjob from Donald Trump, tricked Roy Moore into taking a pedophile detector test and got Georgia state representative Jason Spencer to shout the “n-word.” In the latter case, the politician resigned his seat effective July 31st after the episode aired.
