A Bruno impostor hijacked the Sydney premiere. Pulling up in a hot pink Hummer limo, dressed in what looks to be a Midwestern teenager in summer school’s thrift store approximation of what gay people look like*, the impostor stormed the waiting stage with a bullhorn and a bevvy of bikini babes to shout vaguely homophobic “jokes” as a promotional gimmick for a…new sauce…at a chain of Portuguese-style family restaurants? Australia is weird. All those Silverchair concerts fucked everybody up.
Video evidence of the stunt now carefully edited into an advertisement for Nando’s, the aforementioned chain of Portuguese-style family restaurants, after the jump. I particularly like the part where the fake Bruno shouts “I feel like I am being raped” as a police officer pulls him off the stage, you know, because of how rape and homosexuality go hand-in-hand? Or is it rape and homosexuality and Portuguese-style family dining that go hand-in-hand-in-hand?
The worst. Of course, it’s only a preview of what is to come, as fools across America raid the local sex shops and Hot Topics (the gays love to accessorize), catchphrases at the ready, in order to make this Halloween the single-most nightmarish on record. (Thanks for the tip, Gideon.)
*Of course, the distinction between a Midwestern teenager in summer school’s thrift store approximation of what gay people look like and the Official Bruno Costume is a fishnet-thin distinction at best.
