Just days after admitting his Joaquin Phoenix documentary was a hoax, director Casey Affleck has sensationally revealed the political career of Arnold Schwarzenegger was also a satirical prank.
Affleck, recently voted "America's 4th favourite Affleck", shocked the world with his announcement that the musclebound Austrian had been posing as a right-wing lunatic as an elaborate essay on modern celebrity and politics.
Schwarzenegger said he felt relieved that the joke was over but said he felt proud of managing to keep up the facade for seven years and felt his role as an ineffectual, moronic Governor of California and would-be future President was his best yet.
"I have to be honest, i thought i would get rumbled" said Schwarzenegger "I had no idea about politics or the issues i was talking about but no matter how ridiculous and objectionable i made my policies, people just kept voting for me. I guess that's California for you".
Schwarzenegger describes the film as a "laugh out loud comedy" in the same vein as Jingle All the Way and the Republic National Convention. He said the most enjoyable scenes were those based around the persistent allegations of sexual misconduct, which he insists were all completely staged.
America, already rocked by two shocking admissions, is on tenterhooks wondering who will be the next to come out and declare their public life has all been a Casey Affleck-directed satire on society. Former President George Bush has been installed as a huge favourite with the bookmakers.
