"Something bad has happened, and something worse is about to happen," explained Cohen before the clip aired

There are some things you just can’t show on television.

From Borat to Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen has made a living playfully offending people. But in his latest movie, The Brothers Grimsby, it seems he’s taken his gross-out sense of humor to a whole new level.

The actor stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night to promote the upcoming film, but when it came time to show the clip, Kimmel said it was simply too graphic to show on broadcast television.

The solution?

They showed the clip to the studio audience and turned the cameras on them to film their reaction.

“Something bad has happened, and something worse is about to happen,” explained Cohen, 44, before the clip aired.

As the scene played on the big screen, the audience, including Kimmel, went through a roller coaster of emotions. They burst into laughter, shed tears, covered their mouths, gasped and even looked away – all within the two minutes the video played.

While we can’t be sure what exactly they saw, we do know one thing: There’s an extremely uncomfortable-sounding elephant involved.

“Well done. That’s one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen in my life,” Kimmel, 48, told Cohen afterward.

“At some point I’ll show you the eight-minute cut before the MPAA got it,” Cohen joked.

“Whatever they cut, they didn’t cut enough,” quipped the host.
