Borat’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel went south very quickly on Monday’s show after he sprayed the studio audience with disinfectant – in a bid to beat coronavirus.
Borat, whose real name is Sacha Baron Cohen, went on to Jimmy Kimmel Live as his alter ego.
And of course, he caused a bit of chaos when he was there.
As the British actor entered the studio, he held a canister full of ‘disinfectant’ and using the nozzle he began to spray the studio and the audience.
‘What have you in the canister Borat?’ Jimmy asked as he sat down.
‘I have very grave news, Kazakhstan Intelligence Services have made a discovery this morning that there is a virus,’ Borat replied.
‘It came from a place called Wuhan, which is in Israel.’
‘That’s no surprise they are spreading everything,’ he added.
To which Jimmy responded: ‘The Israeli virus? You mean the coronavirus?’
Borat then proceeded to get out a magnifying glass and a frying pan from his bag and started to ‘hit’ the virus.
Jimmy nervously laughed as Borat started hitting things with his frying pan, but it wasn’t long before he ventured into the audience.
‘This coronavirus is a coward,’ Borat shouted.
Elsewhere in the interview, Borat went on to conduct a health questionnaire to make sure the host was free from the virus (which, of course, he was).
Borat was originally created as a character for Da Ali G Show and appeared in every episode of the show, along with a cameo in the film spin-off.
The mockumentary comedy film first aired in 2006, where Sacha stars as Borat, a fictional journalist who travels through the United States to make a documentary which features real-life interactions with Americans.
