VIDEO - Sacha Baron Cohen Dumps Ashes on Ryan Seacrest During 2012 Oscar Red Carpet

Sacha Baron Cohen prepares to dump ashes on Ryan Seacrest
While we think Sacha Baron Cohen is funny in his movies, we think he went too far last night at the 2012 Academy Award Oscars red carpet.

After all the hype last week about Sacha appearing in his full “Dictator” costume, Cohen arrived not only in full costume but he proceeded to dump an urn of fake ashes on host Ryan Seacrest.

The urn of ashes was labeled “Kim Jong il”, the dead dictator from North Korea, and you could tell that Seacrest was not expecting the stunt – and was not happy.

Sacha Cohen tells Ryan Seacrest,

"I love it here because it gave me an opportunity to bring my dear friend and tennis partner, Kim Jong-il. It was my dream to come to the Oscars and be sprinkled over the red carpet and Halle Berry's chest. Now when people ask who you are wearing, you will say Kim Jong-il!"

After Sacha was escorted away Seacrest had to complete his live broadcast covered in ashes.

So, Cohen did exactly what the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences didn’t want him to do. What a douche.

For his part, Ryan Seacrest seemed to take things in stride but you can tell from the video he was not happy.

You can also see in the video that Academy staff basically had to drag Cohen away by force in front of the cameras.

Now we all know that Hollywood is a whore for publicity but we got to say this was just stupid, in bad taste, and will not endear Sacha Baron Cohen’s fans to his movies.
