Sacha Baron Cohen Spills Kim Jong Il Ashes on Ryan Seacrest [Video]

by at . Comments

Sacha Baron Cohen just kicked the 2012 Academy Awards in the ash.

Arriving on the red carpet dressed as Admiral Aladeed - his character from The Dictator - the actor chatted up E!'s Ryan Seacrest for a bit before bringing attention to the urn in his hands, which Cohen said contained the ashes of late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il.

“It was his dream to come to the Oscars and to be sprinkled on the red carpet and over Halle Berry’s chest again,” the star said, before "accidentally" spilling the ashes all over the E! News host.

See for yourself and decide: A hilarious gag? Or a lame cry for attention?

Bravo Ryan, You took it like a gentleman. You are part of the most memorable red carpet moment – ever. This is why we love Sasha. No one has ever worn a fake-dead-dictator to the Oscars before, or ever will again.

I found the "prank" totally UNfunny, however, i do feel that Ryan WAS in on it!
Must say though, the line "When they ask who you have on, you can say, Kim Jong II"
was a highlight of the evening....AFTER Jolie's right leg! ;^)

Sasha Cohen should not have been allowed on the red carpet, he looked like an idiot, he acted like an ass, who in their right mind appreciates him, yuck, that was wrong, Ryan was dressed nice and probably expensive and it should have been done. no class on Sasha part, Ryan did great, someone else might have pushed Sasha or hit him and yelled or something. Ryan is great. just shrug it off Ryan as part of your job and running into Asses as you probably do along the way

I do not follow R Seacrest. I did NOT find this funny @ all. It was tasteless, tackey, and down right ignorant of S Cohen whether this act was stage or not. Ryan handle it well; it look like Ryan wanted 2 "kick" his BUTT!!!!! Maybe he should have....

Cohen is of that school of 'comics' that believe everything they do is absolutely hilarious,e.g. Jim Carrey, Robin Williams, Russell Brand. These guys have their talents,(Williams is an excellent dramatic actor) but are so 'on' all the time they're painful to watch. Mugging, blathering, spewing obviously rehearsed one-liners on talk shows, and now this idiot. The awards should have stuck to their original plan and banned Cohen from the Red Carpet. Maybe next time...

I Love Seacrest! And that was 100% a joke! Ryan Seacrest has a great sense of humor too! Probably had to change, but good grief I hope nobody thought that was REAL?!?!?

Nobody else hit the red carpet in a character to advertise their next project. The main problem was it wasn't funny.
