I have been trying like crazy to stay away from news regarding Sacha Baron Cohen’s upcoming film, which is based on Borat’s crazy Austrian fashionista cousin Brüno, but this is just too good. Up until now, the reason we have stayed away from the news is that by reporting it, we could be somehow infringing upon your later enjoyment of the film. But as you look at the image above and read the explanation below, I think you’ll understand that I just couldn’t pass this one up.
According to Telegraph UK, Baron Cohen and his team used fake passes to fool security guards into letting them backstage at the Italian label Iceberg’s Milan Fashion Week show. While one of his team members created a diversion back stage — which, coincidentally involved a man in a head-to-toe velcro suit — Brüno (Baron Cohen) slipped out onto the runway in what can only be described as something out of the Harry Potter universe.
Bruno is due out sometime in May 2009, and is expected by fans to be a hilarious repeat performance akin to Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. And considering the fact that Borat marks the last time that I actually peed myself in a movie theater, I would tend to agree.
Are you anxious to see Sacha Baron Cohen’s next film?
