Eminem Stunt Was Planned Updated on: Comedy writing veteran Scott Aukerman wrote in a posting on his blog that the incident was staged and rehearsed in advance. In case you weren't watching Sunday night, Baron Cohen crash landed on top of the rapper Eminem in a sketch guided by seemingly divine intervention. The comedian, appearing in character as gay fashionista Bruno, was suspended by a harness above the audience, dressed as an angel.
Baron Cohen's fallen angel brings out devil in Eminem Independent. Is it a plane? No, it's a British comedian posing as a gay Austrian fashionista landing on Eminem's face. The comedian, who is best known for his characters Ali G and Borat, appeared above the heads of the audience dressed as an angel in a silver thong, in keeping with the guise of another of his creations, Bruno, a homosexual Austrian television presenter.

In character as the flamboyant Austrian fashion reporter Bruno, Baron Cohen flew above the award show audience on a wire dressed in a pair of white wings and a matching jockstrap with his rear end mostly exposed. While hovering over the crowd, the comedian smashed into an overhead obstacle and was lowered directly into Eminem's lap in the audience, with his bottom pointing straight in the rapper's face. Eminem seemed visibly angered by the incident, saying: He then stormed out with his entourage in tow, and with the cameras rolling, headed straight for the exit. While members of the audience appeared shocked by the incident, there were suggestions this morning that the self-styled homophobic rapper had been in on the elaborate joke.
