WICHITA — “Bruno” debuts July 10, but that doesn’t concern director of airports Victor White.
“I’m not worried about it,” he says.
That’s even though Bruno, better known as actor Sacha Baron Cohen, shot a silly scene at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport after a film crew duped airport staff to get in.
“I can’t imagine they’d include it,” White says of the innocuous video.

Unlike some of Baron Cohen’s antics when he played the character Borat in another film, his new Austrian fashion photographer character “didn’t really create a disturbance to speak of of any kind.”
It did get a lot of worldwide attention, though, thanks to YouTube.
“It was just amazing,” White says.
“The Sunday Times” in London just mentioned the airport in a June 7 story, and the airport video is on the official Bruno Web site.
White plans to see the movie.
“Of course I will,” he says. “It’s going to be fun.”
He likens it to listening to Howard Stern.
“You may not admit that you like it, but you still listen to it.”
