(Newser) – Sacha Baron Cohen was at Cannes today to promote his new film The Dictator, but he got upstaged—by a camel. The actor, dressed in character as Admiral General Aladeen, lost his balance after climbing on the animal and nearly fell off, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Fortunately, he was able to right himself, and the AP reports that he then took a walk down the street and back. Check out pictures of the stunt in the gallery.
