Last night, Jonathan Ross together with guests Stephen Fry, Amy Poehler and Romesh Ranganathan, and the audience were treated to the elephant scene as previously shown on the Jimmy Kimmel Show earlier in the week.
The audience appeared equally shocked as they were on the Jimmy kimmel show, and fellow guest Stephen Fry said “I thought I was going to have an asthma attack!”
In the interview with Sacha told Jonathan Ross about the time he came across ‘the worst Neil Diamond impersonator in the world,’ while visiting a pub in Grimsby.
“The idea was to have a James Bond character and we thought who would be his ideal brother,” Sacha Baron Cohen said of the new film.
“And we spent a bit of time up in Grimsby and in the north of England. Originally he was going to be a kind of football hooligan.
“I went to one of the local pubs up there in Grimsby and a bloke came up to me and went ‘you’re fucking Sacha Baron Cohen.’ I said ‘no, I’m not’ and he said ‘you are, it’s fucking Ali G!'”
He added: “This guy said ‘I’m a Neil Diamond impersonator, name any song.’ I said ‘Sweet Caroline.’ He goes ‘how does it start?'”
