Now that THE AVENGERS excitement has hit a peak, Sacha Baron Cohen is going all out to promote his new movie, THE DICTATOR, even going as far as getting his old friend, Martin Scorsese, to appear with him on Saturday Night Live!

Cohen appeared on the Weekend Update segment as General Aladeen to show off all the positive reviews his film has been receiving.  When Seth Myers points out that all the positive reviews are because Aladeen had been torturing the critics, Cohen brings out a hooded, handcuffed Martin Scorsese to prove him wrong.

Watch the entire skit below, and laugh at just how awesome Martin Scorsese really is. (“You promised me HUGO would be shorter than two hours!”)

THE DICTATOR hits theaters on May 16th.
