Sacha Baron Cohen’s Oscar Prank

After days of back and forth about whether or not Sacha Baron Cohen would be allowed to show up on the Oscars red carpet dressed as his character from “The Dictator,” the comic appeared at the 84th annual Academy Awards in full dictatorial regalia.

Honestly, I think this made the Oscars more fun. I get sick of hearing about who’s at an event I’ll never attend wearing designers I’ll never be able to afford.

So when Admiral General Aladeen walked up to Ryan Seacrest holding an urn of “Kim Jong-Il’s ashes, I knew this was going to be good. “I’m wearing John Galliano, but the socks are from K-Mart,” Cohen quipped.. and well, see what happens next..

People are up in arms about this.. but at least it made this years show different from well, the other 83.

What do you think?!
