Sacha Baron Cohen is never one to make a quiet entrance. And he's at it again, this time as his alter-ego "The Dictator" at the Cannes Film Festival.

The comic, who plays Admiral General Aladeen in the movie, started off his media blitz by getting cozy with George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis aboard a yacht. But things quickly turned south between the two, and he pretends to murder her after a staged fight.

But Cohen didn't stop there. He then dons his military garb, hops on a camel and rides around the tony town in the south of France. However, things don't quite go as planned and he falls off the dromedary .

This is just the latest stunt for Cohen as it relates to the film. At the Oscars, he spilled what he said were Kim Jong Il's ashes all over Ryan Seacrest.

Here are some pictures of his fight with Canalis.
