Sacha Baron Cohen Dumps Ashes on Ryan Seacrest
In the days leading up to the Oscars, the buzz around the web was what will Sacha Baron Cohen do after being threatened with a ban from the Oscars should he come dressed as his Dictator character from his upcoming film.

Cohen, following the news of the ban, replied with his own threat via YouTube, promising "unimaginable consequences."

The payback, while clearly unimaginable, was unfortunately only felt by a slightly miffed Ryan Seacrest. Cohen, dressed as The Dictator character, and carrying an urn full of faux ashes of Kim Jong-ill in his hands, was being interviewed by Seacrest. During the interview, Cohen said that it's the wish of his longtime friend to be sprinkled over the red carpet and "over Halle Barry's chest." Cohen then "accidentally" spilled ashes on Seacrest's tuxedo.

Seacrest, being the consumate professional, took it all in good humor. "Now you know why this isn't taped. Anything can happen, and it most certainly did - all over my lapel." said the American Idol host.

Below is the video of the incident which is quickly becoming viral:
