Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat visited the Jimmy Kimmel show in a hilarious apperance, where he blamed coronavirus on Jews and stole pants off the host.
The Jewish comedian stopped by the U.S. talk show, while in character, to promote the sequel to the 2006 classic comedy telling the host COVID-19 "comes from a place called Wuhan, which is in Israel".
"It comes from the you-know-who...they spread everything," he told the host, who replied he doesn't think it came from Israel.
Cohen then asked Kimmel to take coronavirus questionnaire to find out if he is at risk. “In the last week, have you spent more than 15 minutes in the presence of any Jews?” to which Kimmel replied that, “All of our writers and none of our camera guys are Jews.”
“As a member of Hollywood elite, have you recently drunk unpasteurized children’s blood?” the actor asked.
Later on in the show, the actress who plays Borat’s daughter, appears and demands Kimmel’s pants. Cohen takes off his own pants along with Kimmel and pokes the host with a long stick, which he claims is a thermometer.
The sequel to the comedy "Borat", called Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, has been purchased by Amazon Prime and is expected to hit the streaming platform on October 23.
The 2006 original, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," grossed more than $260 million, winning over critics and spawning endless catchphrases among devoted fans. It even earned an Oscar screenplay nomination.
