Israeli journalist Nimrod Dvir thought it was just another press conference when he was sent to cover the new movie ‘The Dictator’ for the Israeli entertainment show ‘Good Evening with Guy Pines,’(yep. That’s the name) but during that press conference, The Dictator, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, pulled down his golden gun and shoved it into Dvir’s crotch.
With all of the above, when Dvir presented himself as “Nimrod from Israel” to ask a question, it was almost inevitable that Baron Cohen would put on a show. “He asked me if I’m Jewish and I said I’m very Jewish,” Dvir tells Abbanibi. “Then he smiled, asked me to get closer to him and got up from his chair to meet me. He pulled out a golden gun, point it to my crotch and asked me to prove that I’m Jewish.”
Dvir played along with Baron Cohen’s little show and asked him if he really wants to see it, and when Baron Cohen said yes, Dvir said that he don’t want to show it because it’s so big. “He said that it’s probably very small, because if it was big I’d show him. So I unzipped my pants and let him peek inside, with all of the cameras flashing. So he shoved his gun in there.”
