SACHA BARON COHEN dumped ashes on RYAN SEACREST as he was being interviewed at the Oscars today in Los Ageles.
On his Burberry suit? No way!
Unlike most of the Oscars guests who opted for elegance, Cohen decided to come as General Aladeen AKA “The Dictator” to promote his new movie–that also starred Megan Fox–with two female “bodyguards” in tow and pranked Seacrest by tipping over all the contents of the gold urn that he brought with him which he jokingly said contained the ashes of North Korean premier Kim Jong Il.
Needless to say, the seemingly orchestrated prank was not well received by the host but it was one of the most talked about events of the Oscars this year. The impudent actor was soon escorted out of the scene leaving a gray mess on Ryan and the red carpet, which were then the center of attention and trending topic online.
“The Dictator” said to the host before ruining his suit:
“I’m wearing John Galliano, but the socks are from K-Mart! As Saddam Hussein once said to me, socks are socks, don’t waste money.”
But being the good sport that he is, Ryan finished his interview saying:
“Now you know this isn’t taped!”
What do you think of Cohen‘s stunt at the Oscars yesterday?
