Frank Caliendo’ Jon Gruden impression is arguably even better than his John Madden impression. It’s definitely the most hilarious impression he does. Well, sometimes that hilarity is taken seriously. Such was the case for Cardinals GM Steve Keim who fell for Caliendo’s act hours before the draft.

Caliendo talks about his prank to the Cardinals GM in the hours leading up the draft. It’s amazing.

At around the 4:50 mark of the video, Keim calls into the show.

“It was torture,” Keim said of the messages from Caliendo. “I felt like I did three or four trades with . the Raiders and I had to call Mike Mayock to realize it wasn’t really them.”
