Don't you just hate it when you're organising a Kazakh ski festival and instead of the national anthem playing over the Tannoy you get Ricky Martin's 1999 pop hit Livin' la Vida Loca instead? These guys do. Big time.

It's especially funny when you remember that Kazakhstan is the country where Borat is purportedly from - and the very same country that campaigned against Sacha Baron Cohen because they said his character made them look silly.

Perhaps they just wanted the chance to make fools of themselves, themselves? All together now, hands on hearts: "She's into superstitions..."

Then again, maybe it was Sacha Baron Cohen pulling this prank. We don't really believe that for a second of course, but he is the man who dumped the fake ashes of Kim Jong-Il on Ryan Seacrest, so anything's possible, really.

Anyway, all this Kazakhiness is making us think of Borat so much, we're going to have a little YouTube adventure around Borat's greatest moments. Come join us, why don't you?
