As The Hills has proven over the years, things that are scripted can still be entertaining.
This now applies to the unexpected, half-naked confrontation between Sacha Baron Cohen's character of Bruno and Eminem at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards.
Yes, Bruno was dressed in a thong; and, of course, those were his bare buttocks being wagged in the rapper's face. But Eminem knew it was coming, as writer Scott Aukerman (the head comedy writer for the show) has confirmed on his blig:
"The Bruno/Eminem incident was staged... they rehearsed it at dress and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show."
It would have been cooler if it were legitimate, but it's still worth another viewing:
