French slang translation question

A friend of mine, a part of a presentation on the media image of Nicolas Sarkozy, is translating into English a comedy sketch featuring him and Carla Bruni. Faced with a difficult question from the reporters, Sarko, not knowing what else to do, rings Bruni and says,

"On va les faire kiffer les ploucs devant leur télé avec ta baggouzeé."

Sort of by way of saying, show them the ring I gave you, that'll get their attention... that sort of thing. But she needs a translation into English that conveys the slanginess and the snappiness of it, and I'm a little stumped. Any help?
