You’ve probably heard about this already, but in case you haven’t, here’s more proof positive that British people are smarter than Americans. I always assumed – especially in light of the insane popularity of the Borat movie – that eventually Sacha Baron Cohen would get overexposed here just as he did in Britain and be forced to adapt his approach. Thankfully, Americans are stupider than British people and Cohen once again duped a bunch of rednecks.
Apparently, Cohen & co. put on a cage fighting event in Arkansas for his new Bruno movie, attracting thousands of fans. They thought they were getting a cheap show, with “hot chicks, cold beer, and hardcore fights.” What they got instead was a little gay action. From The Smoking Gun:
Both cards ended with two male grapplers (one was identified as “Straight Dave” and wore camouflage) tearing each other’s clothes off and, while in underwear, kissing down their opponent’s chest. This man-on-man action triggered Fort Smith fans to throw chairs and beer at the ring, according to one cop present…
I can’t wait for this movie.
