Spanish term or phrase: Pringao
Could someone please tell me what the French term for "pringao/pringado" is? The word comes up several times in a film script about a group of teenagers in modern-day Spain. As an insult, they call each other "pringaos", but I've no idea what the current slang equivalent would be in France.

Thanks in advance!

Il s'agit d'un film, donc le contexte est très important.
Cela dépend de qui le dit à qui, et en quelles circonstances.

Nigaud, aussi.
Au fait, le DRAE confirme: "Persona que se deja engañar fácilmente."
