I came here and saws billboards with Borat in his crazy swimsuit and I thought what kind of country is this? I had no idea who the guy was...

Borat

He is the most stupid person. In my opinion, no one should see this movie.

True - and the jokes and the mankini are getting a bit tired now... but he does remind me of some Central Asian Journos that I used to work with :D

jokes

what jokes? for us his behaviour is funny but he is just curious because american culture is something completely different from the kazakh one.

Years and years ago, the Borat character did a brilliant send up of some etiquette school in Chelsea.... bloody hilarious.

But the character was dead by the time that the American film came out.

Hopefully you realise you actually posted two pictures of exactly the same stretch of road with the same ads visible from different angles?
