Sacha Baron Cohen, the fearless mastermind behind the TV-to-film characters Borat and Bruno, was spotted wearing ringlets and a pair of Crocs as he rode a camel down New York City's Fifth Avenue yesterday.

The charismatic comedian has been filming his latest over-the-top project, The Dictator, which also stars Anna Faris. Cohen plays two roles in the film: a foreign dictator who heads to the U.S. for a meeting at the United Nations, and the hapless shepherd his enemy hires to impersonate him.

In NYC yesterday, the Borat star paraded on the four-legged beast's back dressed as the bearded dictator, followed by four Lamborghini sports cars and a group of sexy, uniform-wearing women.

Scheduled for a May 12, 2012, release, The Dictator reunites Cohen with director Larry Charles, who shot both Borat and Bruno, and also co-stars Ben Kingsley. Check out the pics below.
