Sasha Baron Cohen showed new and terrifying images of his escape from Borat 2 behind the scenes. Fans of the comedian knew he was taking part in the summer march for our rights in Washington because it was big news. At that moment it wasn’t clear what Cohen was doing, because he wasn’t dressed like a Borat on the set. Cohen appeared at the rally as Country Steve, a western musical figure who sang a song called Wuhan Flu to an enthusiastic audience.

In a recent interview with Stephen Colbert, Sascha Baron Cohen said that March was quite difficult for our Borat 2 legal scenes. The song about liberal injections with the Wuhan flu was good at first, but it all went wrong when the Black Lives Matter movement seemed to protest the rally. According to Cohen he was immediately recognized by the newcomers in the rally, which made him run. The organizers and many people in the crowd were very angry, Baron Cohen said. They tried to storm the scene. Luckily, I hired security. So it took a while to storm the stage.

Sasha-Baron Cohen then showed a video of his escape, which was intense to say the least. We see Borat running away from the stage, dressed as country Steve, as people approach the barricade. Then he throws himself in the car and waits for him, although he doesn’t leave right away. Cohen may remain at a low level, but the organizers of the rally and the participants know he is there. Someone’s trying to open the door of the van, which Cohen had to keep closed when he screamed: Go, go, go, go, go!
Sasha Baron Cohen had previously stated that he had been lucky to get out of the gun rights rally in one piece. The actor also told Stephen Colbert that Borat’s film was a sequel: Providing bribes to the American regime did a good deed after the glorious nation of Kazakhstan was the first of his plans, so he had to wear a bulletproof vest. One of the guys who stormed the scene went for his gun – fortunately, a very brave guard leaned forward and said it wasn’t worth it, buddy, remembers Cohen.
Since its release on Amazon Prime last week, Borat 2 has made a lot of noise. Former mayor Rudy Giuliani of New York dominated the advertising for a suite, which worked very well for Sasha Baron Cohen. President Donald Trump even offered him free publicity. Since then, the film has received mostly positive reviews from critics and fans, many of whom didn’t even know it would be released.
