  • How does that spelled out?

  • What is it?

  • God is you called Donald Donald?

  • He's like, Yeah, Donna on his face.

  • Dropped He was immediately furious that he was going to have to speak to somebody from a kind of lower class borrow rather than this rather astute it Tony in producer.

  • And actually, he sat through the interview for you know, we had about seven minutes, and publicly he would say, Well, I was the guy.

  • The only guy Evan who saw through he didn't see through the interview.

  • I mean, he answered all the questions completely normally.

  • In fact, I asked him, How long is people being doing business?

  • And he answered, Well, human beings have bean dealing in doing business, dealing in rocks for millions of years.

  • So obviously, you know, Homo SAPIENs haven't been around for millions of years.

  • They were dealing insult, and I think it was about first records, or about 5 to 10,000 years ago.

  • So, you know, he was in it for a long time.

  • It was only really when I was asking him for money for a business game that I had, which was an ice cream glove, which was a glove which allowed you to e ice cream without any of it dripping on your clothes.

  • And so it had like a glove it had.

  • It was contoured up here.

  • Yeah, I was asking for, like, $50 million from him at that point, he said, You know, he quite rightly was not interested on did you know, made his excuses and left.

  • But he completely believed that Ali G.

  • Was riel.

  • Um, there's a There's a moment where you play a guy named Country Steve in this, and I don't want to give anything necessarily away that country.

  • Steve does.

  • But a.

  • I love the fact that you're Sasha Baron Cohen playing Borat playing other people because Borat, I don't It's very the beginning of the film.

  • I don't think I'm giving anything away when I say and stop me if I am that you recognizable is Borat.

  • So Borat actually disguises himself with other people.

  • But he's still Berat, doing his an attempt to do an impression of other people, which is not good.

  • His impressions air not good.

  • Here's your great, and you play a country guy named Country Steve, who kind of sounds like Borat but also is singing country music kind of country.
