Sacha Baron Cohen Oscars Prank, Pours Kim Jong-Il’s Ashes on Ryan SeacrestCategory: Entertainment
At the 84th Oscar Awards last February 26, 2012, British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen did a prank on host Ryan Seacrest.
Cohen walked down the the Red Carpet as Admiral General Aladeen, a character from his upcoming movie “The Dictator” in full dictator regalia, complete with military suit, Castro beard and Kim Jong-Il’esque sunglasses and with two lady guards by his side – a nod to deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. He is also holding a golden urn which he said contains Kim Jong-Il’s ashes.
As he was being interviewed, he began to fumble with the urn and proceeded to dump ashes all over Seacrest’s suit.
He could only say,
“I figured he might try something. When you see someone dressed as a dictator and talking about Kim Jong-Il, you have to expect the unexpected.”
