Borat comes to America – Cultural Learnings

Watch for the shot toward the end of the kid behind the wheel of the car being pulled by a horse in the Borat the Movie trailer. More comedic value is delivered by Borat’s ‘chhobbies’. As far as I know, the trailer was actually filmed in Romania and not Kazakhstan. In fact, Borat is persona non grata in Kazakhstan. This video presents a more traditonal view of Kazakh society while this video via Registan gives Korki Burciek a run for his money. My views on Borat are available here.

Of absolutely no comedic value, but of breathtaking beauty, are these images from Hamid Sardar via The Mexican.
