The Chaser's War On Everything
The Chaser’s War on Everything: when a team member jumped out of a car dressed as Osama Bin Laden, police arrested him and his colleagues

The Chaser’s War on Everything, which airs on the ABC network, sent a team to the Apec summit in Sydney with spoof security passes saying “joke”, “insecurity” and “It’s pretty obvious this isn’t a real pass”.

Their motorcade, which included three cars and two motorcycles carrying Canadian flags, was waved through two police security checkpoints and was only found out when one of the crew hopped out of the car dressed as Osama Bin Laden.

“Prior to being detained, The Chaser team had no knowledge that they had entered a restricted zone,” the national broadcaster said in a joint statement with the programme team.

“The police only detained the Chaser motorcade when it was turning around and after Chas Licciardello emerged from a car dressed as Osama bin Laden.”
