In case you didn't know, Kazakhstan has never been a big Borat fan. After all, his movies make them look... bad. However, they are changing their tune and have decided to accept it in their newest tourism video. They even adopt his catchphrase, "Very nice."
An official: "In COVID times, when tourism spending is on hold, it was good to see the country mentioned in the media. Not in the nicest way, but it's good to be out there."
SACHA BARON COHEN is even helping them out saying, "I chose Kazakhstan because it was a place that almost nobody in the U.S. knew anything about, which allowed us to create a wild, comedic, fake world. The real Kazakhstan is a beautiful country with a modern, proud society. The opposite of Borat's version."
