Sacha Baron Cohen spilled the ashes of late North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il onto E! TV host Ryan Seacrest during the 2012 Oscars ceremony.
Baron Cohen arrived at the Academy Awards dressed as Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen, the character from his upcoming movie The Dictator.
Even though he was escorted off the red carpet immediately after dumping the ashes on Ryan Seacrest’s tuxedo, the whole thing was obviously an orchestrated publicity stunt.
But still, leave it to Baron Cohen to steal the show during Hollywood’s biggest night.
