GOSSIP NEWS >> Camel Riding Sacha Baron Cohen: Big Apple Dictator

He’s always had a penchant for the peculiar, and Sasha Baron Cohen was up to his usual craziness in New York City today (June 19).

The “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” funny man was dressed up in ceremonial garb and riding on a camel as he filmed scenes for his new project “The Dictator.”

Cohen also donned a fake beard and gave a one-handed salute to the surrounding crowds as he rode down the street.

One eyewitness told press, “Even by the standards of New York, that is not something you see every day. The only thing more impressive than the camel was Baron Cohen’s ridiculous beard. The whole get up was hilarious, and we are all looking forward to seeing how the film turns out.”
