Bruno/Eminem MTV stunt staged

If you haven’t already seen it, check out this Hi-larious clip of Eminem getting a bum-deal from Sacha Baron Cohen at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards.

The outrageous stunt shows the comedian, as his alter-ego ‘Bruno’, suspended above the crowd dressed as an angel in a thong while making his way to the stage.

However, there is a ‘mishap’ and the 37-year-old lands straight in the rappers lap, face to bum, Slim Shady is furious and throws a barrage of expletives before storming off.

What doesn’t come much of a surprise is the confirmation that the prank was pre-rehearsed. The awards writer, Scott Aukerman said: “Yes, the Bruno/Eminem incident was staged. That’s all anyone wants to talk about, so lets get it out of the way … They rehearsed it at dress and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show then.”

MTV are no doubt attempting to up-the-anti from the infamous Madonna/Britney kiss, and they have certainly achieved their aim. Bravo.
