“My name-a Borat. I like you!”
As you probably know, several years ago Sacha Baron Cohen played the lead in Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, which is up there with the greatest movie titles of all time.
One of the more memorable scenes in the movie, of which there are many, is when Borat dons a luminous green ‘mankini’ and heads to the beach.
Following the movie sales of the ‘mankini’ went through the roof and it’s now a fairly common sight at parties and events. Including as it turns out, in Kazakhstan, where the movie was not so well received.
Earlier this week six Czech tourists were fined and arrested for posing in their mankinis in the Kazakh capital of Astana. When he found out about the incident, Baron took to Facebook and offered to foot the bill.
“To my Czech mates who were arrested. Send me your details and proof that it was you, and I’ll pay your fine,” he said, directing injuries to “[email protected]”
Isn’t that dead sound?
