It seems that Sacha Baron Cohen‘s character in The Dictator, Admiral General Aladeen, has only succeded in pissing off a lot of people ever since the role was conceived. He was almost banned from the Oscars after the Academy got wind that he was going to walk the red carpet as the Admiral. Right after his ban got lifted, Sacha did indeed get into his Dictator avatar and ended up dumping “Kim Jong II‘s ashes” on Ryan Seacrest‘s jacket. Did people find that funny? No. Does Sacha/General Aladeen care? No. Because he’s not going to stop. This was evident in his latest stunt at Sydney Airport. He didn’t throw ashes at anyone this time, just in case you think that’s where we’re going.
Instead, Cohen’s General Aladeen got off the plane in a tracksuit with his military epaulets, natch, along with his bevy of beauties and they pretty much took over the airport. This happened earlier today. Talk about staying in character, huh? We find the fact that Cohen-Aladeen is holding a duty free bag rather hilarious. But in the face of all the (mostly negative) publicity he’s been getting from his stunts, do you think this latest move is hilarious … or tacky?
