Bruno sits on Eminems Face!

I’m having flash-backs (so to speak).  It’s 1992 and I’m watching the MTV Video Music Awards.   Suddenly, everyone looks up: it’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s…Fartman!!  He descended from the rafters, flying with cheeks bared in all of his fartastic glory.

Seventeen years later, enter Bruno at the MTV Movie Awards. He descended from the rafters, flying with cheeks bared in all of his fawntastic glory.

Hmm.

Sacha Baron Cohen may have had a more dramatic landing in Eminem’s lap, but Howard Stern did pretty well with Luke Perry.  Let’s go to the videotape…
