Oh Punk

T-Minus 10 days to Borat

"I like you, do you like me? My name is Borat like Borris but my friends call me Steve. Steeeeve!"

I can not explain in words how excited I am for the new Borat movie. I don't even care that my precious Oakland Athetlics were booted out of the World Series.

Nothing matters, until we get to see Borat. Why?

When Borat Sagdiyev (played by Sacha Baron Cohen aka Ali G) was in town for the premier of his new movie BORAT: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan at the Toronto International Filmfest, he rolled up to the theatre riding in a wagon.

But not just any wagon, a wagon with a horse as a passenger, pushed by four Eastern European country women:

Talk about stirring things up!

I've been watching the Ali-G Show (the BBC and HBO versions) for the past eight years, so to me these antics are nothing new -- all though still hilarious. It's my fellow North Americans, who are just because exposed to this type of comedy, and that concerns me.

I've noticed is that far too many people think Borat is a REAL person (... stupid Americans, ugh! Not all, just many...)

Borat is *NOT* a real person. He is merely an actor, posing as a clueless journalist who is making a documentary on American culture for the ever-so ficticious Kazakstan TV.

Still don't get it? Take a look at a sample of Borat's antics while visiting a Southern American historical museum:

Sacha's acting is so great, I can see why people believe he's real (I take back my stupid Americans comment!). And the best part? He knows how to push the right buttons to get people worked up. I don't know anyone can reamain so calm and collected while there's so much chaos breaking out around them.

Ahhh, I can't wait. Here's the theatrical trailer:

Borat looks like it's going to be hilarious. But the main reason I'm commenting is because I didn't know the A's were out until reading this blog. That really sucks.

What?! You didn't know the A's were out?!

OH MAN. They were out like 1.5 weeks ago, maybe more. They swept the Twins, only to be swept the Tigers! Grrr.. Oakland had a great team this year, they just got owned by Detroit.

Oh well, Detroit is 3 hours from here, so if they win, I'm heading down to that party (but... it looks like STL is the way to go!)
