In response to being banned from wearing funny beards at the Oscars, Sacha Baron Cohen this morning went in-accent as General Aladeen to record special messages for the audiences of YouTube and NBC's Today. The film isn't even out yet, and already I'm feeling painfully overexposed to Cohen's bearded impression of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, but I have to admit, hearing him label Al Roker as the show's eunuch is pretty funny. I don't know why no one has made that now-obvious distinction before. Plus, couldn't your morning use a rape joke or two?
Yes, Ann Curry, it's very cute that you asked him about Sacha Baron Cohen. We get it. Now let's go talk to Willard Scott and find out who turned 100.
