I’m excited that a new Borat film is coming out (Friday on Amazon Prime!), but I’m a little disappointed, too.
Who decided to change the title from Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan to the slightly more anodyne Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan?
Hey, I like both titles, but the first one was clearly a winner.
Regardless, a new Borat movie right before the election is exactly what this weary soul needed. Maybe I can take a two-hour break from refreshing FiveThirtyEight like a lab monkey jonesing for cocaine pellets.
And here’s the cherry on top of the sundae. Borat punk’d Rudy.
In the film, released on Friday, the former New York mayor and current personal attorney to Donald Trump is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of the actor playing Borat’s daughter, who is posing as a TV journalist.
Following an obsequious interview for a fake conservative news programme, the pair retreat at her suggestion for a drink to the bedroom of a hotel suite, which is rigged with concealed cameras.
After she removes his microphone, Giuliani, 76, can be seen lying back on the bed, fiddling with his untucked shirt and reaching into his trousers. They are then interrupted by Borat who runs in and says: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”
That said, Rudy’s Sanka-breath buffoonery has never been quite this, er, funny? Is that the word?
So I know what I’ll be doing Friday. I could use a break from Donald Trump’s dyspeptic dumbfuckery.
Then again, it won’t be nearly as funny in retrospect if Trump somehow ekes out a victory.
You mean, this? This is beyond cringe? You don’t say.
