In Case You Missed This: GQ Interviews Bruno

Can't wait, can't wait for Bruno! Woohoo. Bruno was my favorite character on the Ali G Show, after Ali G of course. GQ magazine had a Q&A with Bruno and it's hilarious, totally in character! Oh, did I also mention that Bruno is nude on the cover? Muahaha - wonder if they'll have this GQ cover on sale in Singapore - I can totally imagine the faces of the cashiers at Borders/Kinos or the Indian/Chinese uncle at the corner magazine store - "Uncle, do you have this month's GQ? The one with Bruno naked on the cover?"

My favorite Q&A from Bruno below. Here's the full interview at

Social & political commentary with a giant dose of ironic humor. Did I say I can't wait? Bruno is out July 10 in the US, peeps in Singapore will only have Bruno one month later (gasp!) on August 20. Sigh - SLOW.

Dear Brüno, where should I be putting my iPhone? The wife says the belt clip is totally out, But it looks like a tuna sandwich in my pocket. Anyplace else?
Vhat ein stupid question. Keep it in your assistant’s pocket, obwiously.

Dear Brüno, how would you define “Obama style”?
Firstly, ich vant to say zat I find Obama an inspiration—it gives me great hope zat, after years of struggle, someone can at last get to ze White House, despite being incredibly hot. On ze other hand, it’s slightly disappointing that he needed zat beard, Michelle, to help him—but vone shtep at a time. In terms of his style, he perfectly bridges Serious und Sexy...Oval Office und Oval Orifice.

Dear Brüno, who are the other best-dressed world leaders of all time?
JFK. Obama. Castro. Timberlake.

Dear Brüno, what do you sleep in?
In reality, ich sleep in a seaweed body wrap under a Zac Posen Navy-Cut Nightshirt. In mein dreams, ich sleep naked in a giant reed basket drifting slowly down ze Nile, cradled in ze arms of Daniel Radcliffe.

Dear Brüno, is it okay to “manscape” down there?
It’s more zan okay; it is most essential. Be careful if you do it yourself, though—yesterday ich tried to self-wax mein arschenhaller und glued meinself to ze bed. Manscaping ist important, but not as crucial as getting regular anal bleaching. If Brüno didn’t get his schmutziger arschenhaller bleached twice a month, his shtinker vould resemble Dizzy Gillespie during a trumpet solo. In Austria anal bleaching ist considered so important zat it’s paid for by ze state. In fact, you cannot run for office if you don’t have a vhite arschwitz. Indeed, ex-chancellor Kurt Waldheim vas elected on ze back of a prishtine anus. Zere are added benefits to getting ze bleaching—on my last session, mein beautician, Klaus, found ze long-lost head of a David Beckham action figure up zere.
