[Video] Brüno Teabags Eminem

Before watching Drag Me To Hell yesterday (which wasn’t half-bad), I was exposed to the full length trailer of Brüno for the very first time. While I think Sacha Baron Cohen will have a difficult time topping the hilarity/buzz of Borat, the movie will still be worth watching via the merit of Cohen’s comedic timing and track record (if nothing else). Later that evening I found myself watching an angelically dressed Brüno descending from the ceiling, straight into the crotch conscious “69″ position with Eminem. The entire ordeal was funny mainly due to two reasons: Eminem appeared livid and walked out of the building; Brüno announced the award winner while the audience (especially Zac Efron) had a look on their faces displaying, “Oh, he’s being serious?!” Not to mention, the still shot of the video below is quite priceless.

How did you discern the charade? Staged and corny? Real and funnny? Perhaps some of our MTV readers can provide the inside scoop.

well I can neither confirm nor deny if this stunt was staged, if the stunt was allegedly staged Eminem’s reaction was most certainly not. Maybe.

i dont think there’s any question as to whether or not this was staged; clearly it was. in a statement mtv claimed the stunt was unscripted. my guess is that maybe mtv planned for the entrance alone, but perhaps cohen was able to set up the rest of the stunt himself by paying some behindthescenes people under the table. money is power and bruno stacks dolllllarzzzz.

definitely staged

Everyone is saying this was staged, which it probably was. There are 2 other options here though. Either Eminem saw this man coming down on him and, wanting him to land squarely balls in face, opted not to move. Or he has the slowest reaction time ever.

This guys 15 minutes of fame are soooo over. Pretty lame, if you ask me.
