Sacha Baron Cohen Takes Bruno To Arkansas

It seems Sacha Baron Cohen has struck again – this time in Arkansas.

While promoting his new movie, the follow-up to Borat- titled Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt, Cohen lured over 1000 Arakanas residents to a homoerotic wrestling match.


Cohen lured the men with the promoise of $1 beer and the prospect of “hot chicks” and “hardcore fights,”,

In reality, the Arkansans were duped last month into appearing as extras in comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest staged mayhem.

Cohen and his confederates organized cage fighting programs on consecutive days in Texarkana and Fort Smith. Both cards ended with two male grapplers (one was identified as “Straight Dave” and wore camouflage) tearing each other’s clothes off and, while in underwear, kissing down their opponent’s chest.

This man-on-man action triggered Fort Smith fans to throw chairs and beer at the ring, according to one cop present at the city’s Convention Centre.


The new film stars another of
Cohen’s creations, Bruno, a gay Austrian journalist who favors mesh
t-shirts and interviews subjects about fashion and entertainment.

The film is expected in Irish cinemas May 2009.
