After appearing on SNL, Borat and his friend Hugh Laurie decided to have a boy’s night out, but were kinda interrupted by an angry Yank who didn’t quite understand, or didn’t care to, when Borat approached him on the street saying:
“I like your clothings. Are nice! Please may I buying? I want have sex with it.”
The bystander, however didn’t see the joke. He took one look at Cohen and punched him in the face. Luckily Laurie was there to help Borat and it has been reported he was in quite a shock himself when the incident had happened. Laurie rushed to help and pushed the man away as Cohen struggled to his feet. He says:
“Sacha couldn’t resist playing the fool as Borat, but picked on the wrong person. I guess this guy thought he was being attacked by someone unstable and lashed out. Sacha is very lucky he didn’t get a much worse beating.”
I like Borat and have to say, I was afraid sooner or later, something like this was going to happened. Love him or hate him, but Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is tipped to become the highest grossing comedy of all time.
