Sacha Baron Cohen is making people uncomfortable again, and The Brothers Grimsby seems like he’s taking his gross-out sense of humor to a whole new level. When we say “seems like,” it’s because we have no clue what’s going on in this clip. We only know that it’s hilarious and awful and an elephant suddenly trumpets as a horrible noise that sounds like someone stirring spaghettis is made. WHAT IS HAPPENING? Only Jimmy Kimmel and his audience knows, and that’s what’s so disconcerting.
And what a perfect way to actually make people want to see the movie. I’m completely intrigued, and even though The Dictator was hit or miss, it’s a fact that Bruno, Borat and Da Ali G show were all brilliant. So this can’t be that bad, right? Well, maybe it can be. It certainly sounds that way. And look at all of those audience members — they may look disgusted and they may all be covering their faces in shock, but there are smiles underneath those terrified and delighted eyes.
And isn’t that what we want? Some sick moment that brings us all together? Thanks, Sacha Baron Cohen. Your awfulness is the stitching that brings society together.
