Ah, she was just Putin us on. To hype her new TV show, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin had a pretend conversation with Vladimir Putin aka Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday.

In a skit on The Tonight Show, Putin/Fallon calls Palin and tells her: "I heard back in 2008, you predicted I would invade Ukraine. Is that true?"

"You betcha, Vlad," says Palin.

Turns out they dont see eye-to-eye on Ukraine she tells him to get out of the country but they both love to have fun at President Obamas expense.

You shoot bear? I prefer hand-to-hand combat," said Putin.

"Well, that's why everyone calls you such a strong leader," said Palin.

"I come from strong genes. President Obama, he comes from mom jeans!" said Putin.

Palins new series about the outdoor lifestyle, Amazing America, kicks off tonight on the Sportsman Channel.
