Borat’s Interview With Jimmy Kimmel Quickly Went Off The Rails

From a Covid-19 inspection and conspiracy theories to a "liquid release" test and a pants-swap.

Borat Sagdiyev brought chaos to the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday.

British actor Sacha Baron Cohen’s fictional alter ego began his interview with Jimmy Kimmel by spraying the studio with what appeared to be disinfectant in a bid to beat the coronavirus.

Things only went further off-the-rails from there.

Borat spouted wild conspiracy theories and tried to literally squash a Covid-19 particle as he promoted the sequel to his 2006 mockumentary, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, directed by Jason Woliner, is released on Friday.

The faux Kazak journalist then quizzed and inspected Jimmy for the virus, zinged late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien with a “liquid release” test gag and then forced Jimmy into swapping trousers.

Sacha Baron Cohen originated the character of Borat on his series Da Ali G Show.

The first Borat film, directed by Larry Charles, grossed $262 million worldwide and was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars.

In September, Amazon confirmed it had acquired worldwide streaming rights to the new Borat film, which will debut on 23 October.
