Sacha Baron Cohen showed up to the 2012 Oscars Red Carpet dressed as his new character, 'The Dictator' General Aladeen. Hey, it could've been worse. He could've been wearing that yellow banana hammock from 'Borat'.
The Academy must've heard The General's threat to hand over a ticket, because he showed up to the Academy Awards red carpet, and he even brought backup—two hot military models.
The first person The General wanted to talk to? Ryan Seacrest, of course. "Ryan, hello! Death to the West!" Cohen/Aladeen exclaimed on the red carpet. When asked who he was wearing, The General responded John Galliano. You remember John Galliano. The dude who made anti-Semetic remarks in France and also happens to look like that Guy Fawkes mask in 'V for Vendetta'?
Anyway, Aladeen said his socks were from Kmart.
"As Sadaam Hussen once said to me, 'Socks are socks, don't waste money,'" he told Seacrest.
Ryan asked the dictator if one of the perks of abusing his power was showing up to the Oscars.
"It gave me an opportunity to bring my dear friend and doubles tennis partner, Kim Jong Il," Cohen replied, showing off an urn. "It was his dream to come to the Oscars and be sprinkled over the red carpet and Halle Cerry's chest again."
And that's when Cohen spilled the contents of the urn all over Seacrest.
Seacrest laughed and said, "I had an idea something was coming, I didn't know in what fashion or form."
