Russian pranksters claim they prank-called Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders pretending to be Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov told the Associated Press that their stunt was one of many in their comedy project “Stars Save the Earth,” in which they call politicians and high-profile celebrities pretending to be Thunberg. In the recording of the phone call, which the duo posted on YouTube on Thursday although the call itself took place in December, an unnamed female pretends to be Thunberg, and Stolyarov pretends to be her father. A Sanders campaign representative didn’t comment Friday on the authenticity of the call, according to AP.

The article goes on to state the following:

They offer to give the man who identified himself as Sanders in the call Thunberg’s support for the presidential campaign, and Sanders welcomes it, suggesting Thunberg make a public statement of her support. “Let us continue to talk and when you come to the United States I will bring some people together and we can do some interesting things, and if you wanted to make a statement in support of my candidacy and the program we have outlined for climate change, I would be very very appreciative,” Sanders said.

The pranksters released a video with an audio recording of the call on their YouTube channel on Thursday.
