Remember that clip of the Jimmy Kimmel Live! audience recoiling in horror at a scene from Sacha Baron Cohen's new comedy, Grimsby?

Kimmel said it was "unaccaptable for broadcast television" so instead of airing it on his show he has now released the first half of that seriously NSFW (you have been warned) clip on Facebook.

Baron Cohen has now released the first half of the clip on Facebook.  It lands as the film flops at the global box office, earning only $14.3m (€12.8m) so far, and just £1.9m (€2.45m) at home in the UK.

Should you be of a delicate disposition don't watch it.  It sees Baron Cohen's character Nobby and his brother Sebastian (Mark Strong) trying to hide from enemies.

There's a herd of elephants in close proximity and things get spectacularly gross.

What you can watch, however, is the clip of Jimmy Kimmel's audience (below).  We particularly enjoy Jimmy's look of unbridled glee as his audience freaks out around him...

The Brothers Grimsby Sneak Peek

Here's the beginning of the scene I showed on Jimmy Kimmel. But just the beginning. You'll either love it or hate it. In case you like it, no pressure but the movie is out tonight. Long live R-rated comedy!
