Bruno goes wild

Baron Cohen runs amok in America - again

Sacha Baron Cohen has been causing a stir in Kansas, where he is shooting his new movie in the guise of flamboyantly gay Austrian fashionista Bruno.

Security at Mid-Continent Airport, Wichita, was reportedly put on alert when ‘a German [started] stripping down to tight shorts and dancing in the lobby’.

'We were lied to,' assistant airport director Brad Christopher said after giving permission for the crew to shoot there. We were duped.'

Wichita police are said to be investigating the prank, but airport officials concede it might not have been illegal, but was 'unethical and highly inappropriate for a public location where security is paramount'.Here is the crew at the airport:

Nearby Central Community Church in the state has also reported that ‘a strange European camera crew’ showed up to their Easter play with their presenter dressed 'biblically' and in chains.

Pastor Greg Smith saw them off, but reportedly said: 'Who knows what the crew was up to. [But] I don't want anyone to go through what we just went through. Or worse. Thankfully, God protected us.'

Bruno has also reportedly stung Ben Affleck with a bogus interview, asking such questions as: ‘How do you like niggers?’

The actor was said to be None The Wiser until he called friend Sarah Silverman about the ‘weirdest interview’ with this ‘idiot’ – and she guessed it was Bruno.

His film, titled Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable In The Presence Of A Gay Foreigner In A Mesh T-Shirt, is due out in October.
