Sacha Baron Cohen spills 'Kim Jong-il's ashes' in Oscars stunt

By on Monday, February 27, 2012

Dressed as the title character Admiral Aladeen of his new movie, The Dictator, Sacha Baron Cohen has played a blinder by creating a stunt only he could have got away with.

Arriving on the red carpet at the 84th Academy Awards with two female guards, Baron Cohen – the creator of Ali G, Bruno and Borat – scattered what looked like ashes from an urn that featured Kim Jong-il's face on the side, telling host Ryan Seacrest that it was Kim’s dying wish “to be sprinkled over the red carpet and over Halle Berry’s chest’.

He then proceeded to spill more of the ashes over Seacrest's suit. The stunt has made its way into every mention I've heard of the Oscars, and has certainly proved a brilliant promotional tool for the film, from the ever-inventive Baron Cohen.
