Sacha Baron Cohen 'spills Kim Jong-il's ashes' at Oscars

Help

Sacha Baron Cohen was escorted off the Oscars red carpet after a publicity stunt for his new film, The Dictator.

The British comedian arrived in character as a middle eastern leader and claimed to be carrying the ashes of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il.

He tipped the urn over the red carpet, repeating the stunt again when talking to US presenter Ryan Seacrest, covering his tuxedo in white dust.
