16/12/05 The Anti-Ambassador of Kazakhstan
Most Borat fans will have seen the world go Borat crazy again this week with the news that the official website borat.kz was closed down by the Association of IT companies of Kazakhstan. Not really a problem as the site was simply moved to borat.tv instead. However, great publicity again for the number six most famous man in Kazakhstan.
Most reports simply took the Reuters news story again in its entirety (probably care of Sacha's new publicist Matt Labov Mr Labov - please get your staff to email firstname.lastname@example.org the press releases too!)
However, the best report on this comes from Doreen Karvajal from the International Herald Tribune. It made the front page of this world famous paper and incredibly the humble Borat Online gets a mention - click here to read the full story. Ms Karvajal names Borat the "Anti-Ambassador of Kazakhstan", but with all of the travel adverts to Kazakhstan within the Google Ads from these pages it may just be possible that Borat is helping to put Kazakhstan on the map.
There is only one thing worse about people talking about you, and that's people not talking about you.
24/11/05 Sue the Jew
Today Borat released a statement in response to the Kazakhstan goverments threat to sue Sacha Baron Cohen.
The response was filmed to a back drop of the Kazkhstani flag and some antique duelling pistols. The transcript of this is below.
Fans of Borat can watch this video clip at Borat's official site www.borat.kz
14/11/05 Do you like me?
Borat is a fictional reporter exposing Western ignorance and prejudices of foreigners in a humourous way?
Well that's not how the Kazakh Government see it. The BBC quotes the Kazakh Foreign Minister, Yerzhan Ashykbayev, as saying.
"We do not rule out that Mr Cohen is serving someone's political order designed to present Kazakhstan and its people in a derogatory way."
Mr Ashykbayev then indicated that he wasn't a big fan of Borat's recent MTV antics saying it was "utterly unacceptable, being a concoction of bad taste and ill manners which is completely incompatible with ethics and civilised behaviour".
It's also believed that he thinks Robbie Williams new single is not as strong as some of his earlier work.
03/11/05 Borat rocks Lisbon
"Please prepare yourself for masturbation because next are international singing prostitutes, Pussy Cat Dolls".
Introduction to Gorillaz
"There is one singer called Shakira... sorry I laugh because in Kazakhstan this word means vagina. For example, 'Can I touch your shakira?' or 'I have seen your wife's shakira, it hangs like the mouth of a tired dog".

14/10/05 Kazakhstan rocked in Borat porno allegations
News reaches us from the Borat Board that the family broadcaster from Kazakhstan has had his dubious past exposed on the eve of the MTV music awards.
Pictures have been released from a home movie allegedly involving a young Borat Sagdiyev and an unknown female. At Boratonline, it is our duty as the worldwide provider of latest Borat information to display these pictures on the homepage.
No one close to Borat was available for comment today. It is so far unclear whether MTV will react to this video being made public so close to the eve of the MTV Europe Music Awards which Borat is scheduled to present.
I like in the mouth. It's nice.
One day I will go to U, S and A and make my fortune.
Whaa, whaa, whee, whaa
I like, high five!
Many thanks to Zoti from the Borat Board for
these pictures. Please discuss this at:

22/08/05 Borat attempts to play rugby with Pamela Anderson
Just a quiet day in LA.
Pamela Anderson was hosting a wedding ceremony for her beloved dog.
Borat turns up on the beach in a leather hat, jacket and pair of hot pants. Of course he's sailing in to the shore on an inflatable turtle playing a keyboard.
Next thing we know he's rugby tackled her and then got half drowned by her security people.
What next? Maybe getting Courtney Love pregnant? Or is that too ridiculous for a British comedian?
1. Land ahoy!
2. Right, where's the party?
3. David Hasslehoff never did this!
4. Did you get that on camera chaps?
5. Don't beat me up too badly fellas.
11/08/05 Borat naked at a mortgage convention

Needless to say the world must now be desperate to see the Borat Movie that will come out soon!
1. Naked Borat and a naked fat man
2. Security attempt to restrain naked Borat
3. Naked Borat manages to get on stage and "wrestle" with naked fat man
4. Six or seven security guards finally escort naked Borat to the door
Finally, Boratonline notices that Borat now has a publicist/PR representative for the USA. If anyone from the Borat USA team wants to get in touch with the site officially or completely unofficially then please email email@example.com
And finally, any thieving lazy reporters wanting to rip of the stories here for a quick story on Sacha Baron Cohen for your glossy broadsheet magazine - please have the decency to at least credit the site www.boratonline.co.uk
19/07/05 Borat continues to cause trouble in the USA...
A news story broke earlier this week about Borat causing trouble in Mississippi's Channel 16 TV station. He somehow managed to get interviewed live and then after initially behaving started to stir things up. When asked to leave he stumbled across a live weather report in the studio... twice.
Borat then hit the national headlines of most UK tabloids this morning with a story about how he was kicked out of some American aristocat's house after being invited in for a dinner party.
The fact that this has made all the UK papers suggests that Sacha's publicist has done a bit of a press release to get a bit of PR for the approaching Borat Movie.

To the right is a picture snapped by Borat fan Josh from New York. Josh speaks to www.giantmag.com -
"Last night I was on the subway when Borat got on with some crew members who quickly tried to get out of the way. He stood up against a pole, pulled out a Hustler* and started reading while the guy to my right videotaped through an opening in his jacket. No one else really noticed what was going on, but I did manage to take a photo with my phone".
A big thank you to Austin for emailing in with this story!

Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox have bought the domain name www.boratmovie.com - it is likely that this will be the official site for the film.
Other reports include that Trey Parker from South Park fame is working alongside Sacha and Dan Mazer writing the script. IMDB.com is reporting that Daniel Castro will be alongside Borat playing Locust and that Jimmy Miller is producing the film.

21/04/05 Fun with the Borat Soundboards
Fan of the site Noo Noo has used one of the Borat Soundboards to have a conversation with a lady ringing to ask who he'd vote for in the UK general election.
Obviously instead of talking to the lady on the phone he simply clicked the for the appropriate Borat catch phrase.
Woman - "If there was a general election tomorrow who would you vote for?"
Borat - "Do you know Corky Bucek?" (five times)
Of course he recorded the full conversation on MP3 and you can download it the excellent site below for free:
A number of people have emailed me in asking where they can get the Borat Soundboards - well basically they seem to appear now and again on different sites and then get taken down. Doing a Google Search for "Borat Soundboard" isn't a bad idea.
However, at the moment we know of three:

14/01/05 May George W. Bush drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq
After the controversy had just about died down about Borat singing about throwing Jews down wells our Kazakhstani friend has hit the headlines worldwide on CBS, Fox News, MSN, Radio 1, The Sun, Reuters, Sky News etc. etc. after some naughty antics at a US Rodeo.
At the rodeo in Roanoke, Va. USA, Borat was given permission to sing the national anthem. He started well introducing himself and saying that he supported the war against terrorism. He then was reported as saying,
"I hope you kill every man, woman and child in Iraq, down to the lizards"
"May George W. Bush drink the blood of every man, woman and child in Iraq"
Borat then got the words of the national anthem wrong finishing with...
"your home in a grave".
The organisers of the event realised that the crowd were angry and they rushed him away fearing violence.
"Had we not gotten them out of there, there would have been a riot," rodeo producer Bobby Rowe told the Roanoke Times. "I told him you done the wrong thing at the wrong place!".
Boratonline currently believes that Borat was filming for either a third US series of Da Ali G Show or for a documentary style film featuring Borat. If anyone can give any further information on this please email firstname.lastname@example.org
