Borat 2 is poised to create the perfect storm of satire and chaos right before the US presidential election – and it might be exactly what the world needs.
UPDATE: Cohen has just announced a release date for Borat 2.
Now it’s been announced that Borat 2, or as it’s officially known, Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan, is set to drop in October right before the US election – and it seems Cohen may have also dropped a sneaky preview.
After much speculation, yesterday it was finally confirmed that Borat 2 would arrive in late October on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service which has secured worldwide rights to the film. Now, it appears Cohen may have offered a taste of what’s to come in what appears to be the film’s first teaser.
Posted on the Twitter account @KazakhstanGovt, which claims to be the “Official Twitter account for the Government of Kazakhstan” (dubious), the 35-second clip congratulates “Premier” Donald Trump following today’s presidential debate.
The video is bursting with jabs at all kinds of things including Trump’s racism, his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, and handling of the coronavirus pandemic: (“Because of Trump 350 million Americans still alive!”), asserting that Biden has to wear a mask due to his bad breath. Borat 2 is sure to be one hell of a storm.
Watch the video below.
