In the video, the Al-Qaeda leader, played by a local actor, insists he loves America and says he "made a big mistake attacking your country and I feel like a big jerk.”

TORONTO – It turns out Al-Qaeda’s now-deceased leader loved America and apologizes for the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Or so a cheeky spoof video of Osama Bin Laden, played by Canadian comic/actor Shaun Majumder, claims in the latest episode of the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.’s satirical news series This Hour Has 22 Minutes.

The Canadian sketch comedy video, claiming to convey Bin Laden’s final message to the world, portrays a man repentant for his past sins after years on the run.

“I’m so, so sorry. I made a big mistake attacking your country and I feel like a big jerk,” Majumder’s mock rendition of Bin Laden’s last words suggests.

“I did not take time to get to know you America. And now that I do, I like you. I really, really like you,” he added on the This Hour has 22 Minutes, produced by DHX Media and now a national Canadian institution for mocking the high and mighty, from Canadian politicians to celebrities.

An apparently anguished Bin Laden even takes his own shot at Charlie Sheen: “What trouble is this guy going to get into next, am I right?”
