Sacha Baron Cohen shares terrifying Borat 2 behind the scenes footage

When the first "Borat" film came out in 2006, the Kazakh government banned the movie and took out ads refuting some of the "facts" the movie presents about the country.

Amazon Studios has released some very nice viewership figures for Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat sequel.

Sacha Baron Cohen (as himself for once) appeared on The Late Show last night and shared a clip of a deleted scene from Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery Of Prodigious Bribe To American Regime For Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan of him as Borat (but in a second disguise on top of that) getting violently chased offstage at a racist pro-gun rally.

The new tourism campaign, which was rolled out on Sunday, depicts Kazakhstan's natural landscape of mountains and lakes, futuristic-looking architecture, local traditions, and regional cuisine, with people in the ads noting that all of the sites are "very nice".

"Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" is available to stream on Amazon Prime. And Kazakhstanis do not drink fermented horse urine - the country's traditional drink is fermented horse milk.

"I think that first you need to carefully review the first film and, in the end, understand that apart from the name of the country, Borat has nothing at all to do with Kazakhstan", Fariza Abdraimova, a student in Almaty, Kazakhstan's largest city, told Radio Free Europe.

It starts with Borat being jailed in Kazakhstan over the bad publicity resulting from the original film, and lamenting that numerous country's anti-Semitic traditions have been banned as a result.

As it released the new ad campaign, Kazakhstan Travel asked, "How can you describe a place this surprising in just two words? And its people, despite Borat's jokes to the contrary, are some of the nicest in the world", Kairat Sadvakassov, deputy chairman of Kazakh Tourism, said in a statement. He holds on to the door to ensure it is locked while the crowd can be heard outside, before asking the driver to drive them away quickly.

The lean-in attitude marks a reversal from the confrontational stance the Central Asian country adopted upon the release of the first Borat movie in 2006. "The real Kazakhstan is a attractive country with a modern, proud society - the opposite of Borat's version".

"It seems like Kazakhs are proud of the new ad because it tells their story, the story of the Kazakhstan they know and want to share with the world", he told Insider.
