Brüno (Sacha Baron Cohen best known as Borat or Ali G) was at the MTV Movie Awards last night and had a little incident with Eminem. IMDB.com had the article, I read about it last night and I was pretty disappointed that I missed it.

Here is the article:

Eminem Walks Out Of MTV Awards After Bruno Prank

31 May 2009 8:12 PM, PDT

Eminem stormed out of the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night after outrageous funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen literally landed in his lap.

The rapper had just performed a medley of new hits and was sitting in the audience when the daring Brit – as his Austrian fashion expert character Bruno – flew overhead in a dove outfit, chanting, “Ich bin Bruno. Ich bin dove of peace.”

Cohen’s outrageous alter-ego ‘suffered’ an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction – baring his naked backside, he landed upside down on rapper Eminem’s lap.

The Stan hitmaker screamed, “Are you serious? Are you f**kin’ serious?” as his entourage rushed to free the rapper.

What appeared to be a joke quickly turned awkward when it seemed apparent that Eminem wasn’t in on the gag.

As a suspended Cohen cracked jokes about the incident, stating, “Is the real Slim Shady about to stand up?” Eminem and his entourage left their seats and walked out of the Universal Ampitheater.

Before the awards started, Cohen was stunning red carpet reporters – he turned up as Bruno, wearing a leopard skin Speedo-style swimming trunks and T-shirt ensemble, topped off with a matching Bavarian hunter’s hat.

I haven’t officially heard whether or not it was actually staged or not, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Eminem was in on it. I mean, it really wouldn’t take much to flip out if someone landed on you. But to show you the video, I looked up a clean version of it off of youtube.

(UPDATED 6/2/09, this is the second time I’ve had to change the video because of the copyright on it, so if it happens again I’m just leaving it alone)

All this in an effort to promote Cohen’s July movie, Brüno, I was already going to see it because of the experience with Borat, which was fantastic. But now I really want to see what it is all about.

I also have heard about the trailer for Brüno and I decided to look it up on youtube as well, it looks like its going to be amazing, here it is:
