    A former US vice president and one of the architects of the war on terror took part in a viral ad for a new show created by the man who created and portrayed characters like Borat Sagdiyev and Admiral General Aladeen.

    British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen recently released a teaser for his new upcoming show, featuring none other than ex-US Vice President Dick Cheney.

    "Imagine if Sacha Baron Cohen had been undercover secretly filming for a year," the opening titles of the video say.

    ​The footage eventually cuts to Dick Cheney sitting in a chair and signing a waterboarding kit at the request of an off-camera speaker, presumably Cohen himself.

    "That’s a first. That’s the first time I’ve ever signed a waterboard," the former vice president remarks.
