Andy Samberg's writer says the Bruno/Eminem stunt was totally rehearsed

Andy Samberg's writer: Bruno, Eminem stunt was totally rehearsed

Andy Samberg’s head writer on the MTV Movie Awards, Scott Aukerman, now admits that the controversial Bruno/Eminem stunt was completely staged and rehearsed.

Which means that Slim Shady -- who appeared to be utterly horrified at the sight of Bruno's privates and later stormed out of the Universal Amphitheatre in anger -- is a much better actor than he proved in "Eight Mile."

Why, he's poised to be the new Sean Penn!

According to the Pop and Hiss blog, after a day of silence from Slim Shady and MTV, Aukerman wrote on his Tumbler: "Yes, the Eminem-Bruno incident was staged. They rehearsed it at dress [rehearsal] and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show."

What about the angry look Eminem gave Cohen’s buttocks? Just acting.

And that serious storm-out? According to TV Guide, "Most of the big celebs came, did their thing and left."

Do you buy this explanation? Or are they saying this to help Eminem save face?


The final word on Eminem/Bruno: It was staged, writes head writer

Reader comments are still pouring in regarding Sacha Baron Cohen's in-your-face crash-landing on Eminem at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, with a debate still raging as to whether or not Eminem was in on the joke. "Mr. Show With Bob and David" writing vet Scott Aukerman has thankfully cleared up the issue -- and stole a bit of thunder from MTV in the process.

He writes on his Tumblr:

Yes, the Bruno/Eminem incident was staged. That’s all anyone wants to talk about, so let’s get it out of the way. They rehearsed it at dress and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show then. Okay, you can stop reading this blog now!


What do you think? Are they saying that to cover up Eminem's embarrassment, or was it staged?
