When Pete Rose Met Brüno


Earlier in the week we reported how Brüno's DVD and Blu-ray release would restore the film to its original state in full, glorious La ToyaVision. But to further entice you, Universal has sweetened the deal with some bonus material starring disgraced MLB player/manager, Pete Rose. (Except they put the scene on YouTube, defeating the enticement purposes somewhat.) In it, Rose is invited to kick back on the same Pedrolounger as La Toya and Paula Abdul. Sadly, it's a gag that offers decreasing comedy returns, smacking of the trying-too-hardness that weighed down most of this box office underperformer. Still, it's nice to see Rose hasn't lost his capacity for compassion, and that he clings steadfastly to the No Body Hair On My Sushi policy enacted following an unfortunate incident at the Reds' 1990 World Series celebration banquet.

    You do have to wonder. No matter what kind of famewhore I might be, if a camera is pointed at me and someone asks me to sit on someone for an interview, would I? I don't think so. That's just the sort of thing to turn up on the interwebs.
