Sacha Baron Cohen as The Dictator

VIRAL VIDEO OF THE DAY 2: Sacha Baron Cohen’s alter-ego Admiral General Aladeen stopped by the Waldorf- Astoria for a press conference yesterday to promote his new movie, The Dictator, which opens May 16. The leader of the fictitious North African Republic of Wadiya (“12,000 miles from Israel, as the Scud flies”) was flanked by 25 “virgins” armed with machine guns in red berets and short skirts. Said Aladeen: “I have their virginity checked every night, by the head—of my penis.” His Excellency also addressed his recent red-carpet run-in with Ryan Seacrest at the Oscars: “It’s not the first time he’s had an Asian man poured on his chest,” he said of spilling Kim Jong-il’s ashes on the host. Cohen also appeared this morning on the Howard Stern Show as himself, a rarity for the promotion-minded auteur. (5/8p)
