Just a few short years after baffling and enraging Middle Americans with Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen is back…as Bruno.

TheBadandUgly, reporting from the AP, notes that Cohen and crew have apparently surfaced in Kansas, where they caused a stir at the Wichita airport while filming scenes for their mockumentary about gay Austrian television personality Bruno (the film’s rumored full title: Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt). From the article:

Officials at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport are rewriting their policy on commercial filming inside the terminal after a film crew stripped down and started dancing at the airport.

The crew had permission from the airport to film a scene on March 18 based on a “European man” visiting America.

But security workers became concerned when they began dancing in tight short shorts, kissing and fighting in the lobby.

Security couldn’t find anything illegal about the performance, but asked the crew to leave.

Brad Christopher, assistant director of airport operations, says it won’t be as easy to film at the airport in the future.

TheBadandUgly goes on to reference another article which claims the Bruno crew “disrupted an Easter play at a Kansas church by turning up in chains.”
