PAULA ABDUL SAT ON A MEXICAN

By | 33 Comments

<a href="http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2009/06/highlights_from_brnos_producti.html" target="_blank">NY Mag</a> recently obtained some production notes from Brüno, which for once are actually interesting (production notes are usually just a collection of the cast and crew's embarrassing, sycophantic praise for each other, like a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daisy_chain_(sex)#Daisy_chain" target="_self">daisy chain</a> in print form).

I was trying to avoid this because all I do is talk about Conan O'Brien all the time, but it seems like Bruno's appearance on "The Tonight Show" last night (video below) is the big story today.

BRUNO & ANATOMICALLY CORRECT BODYSUITS

By | 15 Comments

Brüno and friends recently made an appearance in Germany wearing furry, anatomically correct bodysuits (with matching Ugg boots), an idea he clearly stole my <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/bodysuit-family.jpg" target="_blank">old family portraits</a>.

BRUNO REQUIRES HELMETS FOR STUPID PEOPLE

Sacha Baron Cohen is a kosher Jew, so he pretty much had carte blanche to do all the Jew jokes he wanted in Borat.
