    Could it be people jumping to conclusions he has been filming the second season of Who Is America? over the last 6 months. Borat could just be a segment of that

    Based on the whole concert shabang that he did I was thinking it had to be Who Is America.

    maybe. there are a lot of reports about it tho

    we can also confirm a test screening took place last week. In a meta story, the film follows Borat as he’s now a famous figure and so to hide from the public, he pretends to be someone else. With the current meme-worthy title of Great Success, we’ve learned from sources that Trump and Epstein’s relationship, as well as the coronavirus, all figure into the main narrative with cameos from Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani, and more best left unspoiled. We’ve also learned that one of the yet-to-be-revealed cameos could potentially derail a political career, and we imagine some backlash and lawsuits will follow.

    As a different character I could well see it however Boart became so famous for making fools of them the first time round it's hard to see the amount of PR guys that he would have to get past with a film crew to meet these politicians and for them falling for Borat again I'm not sure.


    However it is America so you never know.

    How can Cohen be expecting to get away with this stuff now? Surely the world and his wife knows who Borat is at this stage.

    I'm a big fan of Borat but I don't think a lot of it was as off the cuff and authentic as the finished product suggested. I'm as cynical as they come though!

    that's addressed in the description
    As far as the plot goes, Borat is no longer the little-known Kazakh TV personality he played in the original 2006 movie. This time, the public knows who he is, so the character has to go “undercover” to interview people.

    Looks like they changed the full title, it's now The Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. :eek:

    Are people not tiring of Sacha Cohen and his antics.
    The guy is a complete hypocrite with his attacks on free speech and social media.

    I get him, I liked Ali G back in the day ,I watched it from the start on Channel 4 but that doesnt mean that he is a huge hypocrite.
    He gave some speech last year criticising social media and that freedom of speech needed to be censored .

    You obviously aren't because you're still talking about him.

    Been a while since I’ve found his work particularly funny.

    But catching one of the world’s scuzziest men on camera with his hands down his pants (literally) is a damn fine achievement.

    Satire is a bit different to propaganda

    Ah now. Facebook wanted to curate people's social and political lives and messaging but washed its hands of basic due diligence to catch the obvious potential for manipulations shown latterly by the infection of "fake news", the antithesis of Free Speech IMO. FB positioned itself as a vital apparatus of the social consciousness but with none of the based oversight of even editorialised news outlets adhere to. Cohen's point of view seems fair enough to to me. Besides, "Free Speech" is not an automatic immunity from consequence or action; otherwise libel laws and so on wouldn't exist. Facebook tried to shortcut the trust element.

    ... Oh yeah. Borat lol :D

    I genuinely don't think I will ever tire of him. Watching him for over 20 years and he is funnier now than he was back then.

    Went back over the old bruno videos and they are even more hilarious now, no regard for pc crap these days.

    I went through almost all of SBC's old stuff during lockdown on YouTube. The guy is nothing short of a genius. His scripted stuff is the worst by miles though.

    If it's as good as "Who is America?" we're in for a treat. When he had the food critic eating "filet of vegetarian fed Chinese dissident". Nearly died laughing.
