Like the Rock and Sock Connection on the WWE years ago comes another special connection courtesy of the 2009 MTV Movie Awards that aired last Sunday, May 31, 2009. I did not watch the MTV Movie Awards but this tea bagging Eminem and Bruno Connection clip is making me reconsider. This was absolutely one the best moments of the show (so I hear). Sasha Baron Cohen is following the same marketing formula he utilized for Borat and is appearing in character everywhere he can, which included the Movie Awards. He speaks German (as far as I can tell) off and on during the entire escapade. The funniest parts are when Eminem starts swearing, saying: “Get this fuck off me” and “Motherfucker” (I do not think MTV was originally able to bleep all of them out) and when Bruno’s ass comes out of his face and Eminem storms off, entourage in tow, you hear Bruno say: “Is the real Slim Shady about to stand up?”. Check out the segment in its entirety below. By the way, Twilight swept the MTV Movie Awards. I am guessing teenage girls hit the polls hard preceding the awards ceremony.
