a tale of a few cities

Only in The US

Posted in Uncategorized by petercombe on July 7, 2009


On the cover of July’s GQ magazine, Sacha Baron Cohen contorts himself into a relatively modest pose for a nude guy. In character as the Austrian fashion reporter Bruno, the comedian rotates his torso back, raises his thigh, and tucks his front flank in an apparent effort to cover up any naughty bits. 

That wasn’t chaste enough for some retail outlets (Safeway, Target), which are treating the cover as though it were a copy of Penthouse and keeping the majority of the cover out of view.  Some shops are displaying the magazines back cover instead.
