Eminem might think he’s the sort of guy you don’t mess with, but Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Bruno” thought otherwise Sunday night at the MTV Movie Awards. Bruno was supposed to float down to the stage while being suspended from a wire during the stunt, but there was a “malfunction.” Bruno, wearing angel wings and a thong, landed upon rapper Eminem with his crotch in the rappers face as he said, “Pleased to meet you Eminem!” This took the celebrity crowd by surprise as they burst out into laughter. After friends of Eminem physically removed “Bruno” from Eminem, Eminem got up and cursed as he left.
Many people are speculating that the entire thing was staged, but if you check out the video below Eminem looks genuinely upset. I’m not exactly sure his acting skills are up to par. And not to mention that Bruno rarely let’s his victims in on the joke before hand. However, I’ve got to say, Sacha Baron Cohen is amazing. Regardless if this was a stunt or if he pranked Eminem on live television, there might not be anyone else as crazy or dedicated to his craft. But if it wasn’t planned, I just can’t wait to see what Eminem does in retaliation cause I don’t really take him for the sort of guy that allows someone to embarrass him without getting even!
