Jagshemash! The long awaited Borat sequel, which we have been hearing about for a few months now, will finally be hitting our screens. And it’ll happen faster than we could imagine, too.
Today it was announced that Amazon Prime will be releasing Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan. And yes, that is the official title of the sequel to the 2006 film that became a cultural phenomenon. The film will be hitting the streaming giant the day before the election, so we’ll at least have that to look forward to.
The film was made with a small camera crew that was ready to go the first day that it was made possible post-quarantine earlier this year. That means that pre-production was going on throughout the quarantine, we imagine. Reports have also come out that Donald Trump and his reported friendship with Jeffrey Epstein will be a theme of the film, as well as the pandemic itself. And as always, Sacha Baron Cohen has put himself into dangerous and risky situations. Just how dangerous? There were two separate scenes he filmed that required him to wear a bullet proof vest. That’s pretty damn risky!
It’s been far too long since we’ve gotten a good dose of Borat. So we think we’re definitely ready for the next installment of Sacha Baron Cohen’s most famous creation.
