Trouble fitting in: Sacha Baron Cohen's Dictator wants to sell assault rifles instead of vegetables in new clip for comedy

It appears Sacha Baron Cohen's Dictator character struggles to adapt after being given a new life in the US.
For Admiral General Aladeen seems more interested in selling assault rifles than fruit and veg in a new clip showing his first day on the job.
He is given a guided tour of the grocery shop by his new co-worker, who is played by Mama's Boy star Anna Faris.

Not impressed: Sacha Baron Cohen's Dictator character reveals he thinks selling fruit and veg is boring in the new clip
She tells him: 'Anyway let me give you the grand tour. On the roof we have this amazing organic garden…'
But Aladeen is not impressed, and buts in to say: 'Boring. Do you sell any assault rifles'
However she is obviously oblivious to his past as an oppresive ruler in the fictional Middle Eastern country of the Republic of Wadiya, and thinks he is trying to crack a joke.
She says: 'Oh wait, I got it. Humour, right I took a feminist clown workshop once. I wasn't the best student.'

But her attempts at mime obviously strike a chord with Sacha's character, who is unrecognisable from his former self after he is captured by the CIA and they shave off his trademark beard.
Sacha plays two roles in the film, the dictator and a goat herder who is his spitting image.
In a move that is very much a reheat
of Charlie Chaplin's classic The Great Dictator, he is secretly replaced
by his lookalike and must rebuild his life in New York City.
Displaying some of the comic's famously politically incorrect humour, he tells her: 'You seem educated.

'I love it when women go to school. Its like seeing a monkey on rollerskates.
'It means nothing to them but is so adorable for us.'
The film is said to be inspired by the novel Zabibah and the King by Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.
It also takes further cues from real life, with the character's troupe of female bodyguards a parody of the former Libya dictator Muammar Gaddafi's security force.
The film's trailer also features news footage of U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron which are excerpts of speeches condemning Gaddafi's actions in the Libyan civil war.
The movie is due to hit the theatres on May 16.
