Você poderia fazê-lo, e obter sucesso, como ninguém [Phrasal Verb: Pull it off]

Como você já deve saber, o meu comentarista político favorito no rádio é o Rush Limbaugh. Um ouvinte ligou para o programa dele e pediu que o Rush fizesse uma série de vídeos para jovens explicando conservadorismo norte-americano. O ouvinte disse que se alguém conseguisse fazer uma coisa dessas, e obter sucesso, seria o Rush Limbaugh. Esse ouvinte falou assim: You're a good-looking guy, so I think that you could really ________ it ________ . I don't think anybody else could, but I think you could. [Você é um cara bonito, então eu acho que você realmente poderia conseguir fazer isso e obter sucesso. Eu não acho que qualquer outra pessoa conseguiria fazer isso, mas acho que você conseguiria.] Que phrasal verb ele usou nessa frase para dizer isso? Ouça esta parte do programa e confira a sua resposta. [Dica: Eu ensinei esse phrasal verb aqui várias vezes, inclusive na semana passada. ;)]
