Gay Fashionista Cage Fight Pranks

Sacha Baron Cohen As 'Bruno'

— July 9, 2008 — Pop Culture
Sacha Baron Cohen, the British comedian and filmmaker who duped a people into doing stupid things for the wildly successful film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan two years ago, is making another movie called Bruno and once again, he’s apparently punking people in the process. Ads were posted around Arkansas as well as on Craigslist promoting “Blue Collar Brawlin’.”

“Suckered in by $1 beers, hot chicks and only a $5 entry fee, Arkansas fight fans were duped into appearing as extras in the new Bruno movie,” the site says. “Sacha Baron Cohen and his staff organized two consecutive days of cage fights in Fort Smith and Texarkana. Both days ended in matches with someone named ‘Straight Dave’ (who wore camouflage) tearing the clothes off his male opponent and both kissing down each other’s chest.”

One police officer patrolling the convention center said fans got rowdy expressing their outrage, throwing everything from beer to chairs at the ring.

The video shows a hilarious scene from Bruno. The movie is about a fictional, flamboyant Austrian gay reporter with a penchant for interviewing unsuspecting guests about topics such as fashion, entertainment, celebrities and homosexuality. The scene was filmed in Kansas.
