Borat Got a Beating!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by MikeyFingers, Nov 14, 2006.


  1. Borat, the fake news guy from the Ali G show and star of his new movie, got beaten by a passer-by in New York City the other day.
    Apparently he decided to say something stupid (while in character of course) to a stranger on the streets of Manhattan...this guy's smart.

    Personally, I'm glad this happened. I can't stand that guy.

    I guess it comes with the job. Not everybody can catch the joke or be a fool.

    House saved him??? Why? He wasn't even having a seizure. I thought House didn't touch anyone who wasn't convulsing off the bed?
     
  6. I was pondering how dangerous it is to actually say some of the things he says to people after I saw the Borat movie this weekend - I guess I was right.

    sacha baron cohen cracks me up, but i always thought something like this was inevitable. i mean with half the stuff he pulls, i'm suprised this hasn't happened earlier
     
  8. He was here in Australia early this week. One journo commented that he was a very boring, unfunny person when out of character.

    Ah, who cares. I'd bet Steph Dawe would get a kick out of that story.

    It was a matter of time. Especially in New York.

    Good ol' Americans. Got a problem? Beat it down.
    I say this because the article is British.

    Borat was on Leno this week. He should change the pronunciation of his name to Boring.

    He'll be out of the spotlight in 3-4 weeks.

    yeah defintely saw this coming sooner than later, but he's great. and yeah he's already pretty much played out now, but i loved the movie so i'm not worried about that. but it might have been nice to just have had the how ever many years worth of borat on ali g just to not water this character down. but who can blame him for being an international sensation and making millions, and entertaining many. he was too talented to just be an english sensation forever. he being sasha baron cohen.

    Apparently as long as it isn't CNN, it's all true...



    I saw the Borat movie tonight, and to be honest, I'm shocked he isn't dead already.


    Also, his wife (in real life, Isla Fisher), is smoking.

    And lastly, House rocks.

    Being big in the states doesn't make him an international sensation. He's known over here, but he ain't no sensation. His movie is not selling out. I guess people over here are more aware of different cultures and cultural differences to not see humor in misrepresenting them.

    A little pretentious, are we?

    I think it's awesome Hugh Laurie came to his aid. I really like that guy.
