SACHA Baron Cohen turned a Covid face mask into a mankini in an outrageous Borat 2 poster – with the film dropping this month.
The 48-year-old comedian has surprised fans by reprising the iconic character for a sequel, which he seemingly managed to film in secret.
The new film arrives on Amazon Prime Video this month and in a poster, Sacha poses naked except for shoes, socks and a face mask over his genitalia in a Covid-inspired version of his famous mankini from the original 2006 film.
The timing of the sequel’s release is important as Sacha has been extremely vocal against President Donald Trump and the film arrives right in the middle of the 2020 Presidential Election race.
The trailer pokes fun at Trump and the many issues that have been associated with the President including his health and ongoing accusations of racism.
The trailer also references the coronavirus pandemic, with Borat attacking it with a pan before being told the virus is still here.
The short clip also declares that Borat is here to “save 2020”, which he could well do as people certainly need a laugh after months of lockdown and restrictions relating to Covid-19.
It is also likely that the film will include some real life cameos including Vice President Mike Pence.
The film’s official title is ‘Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan’ and was only confirmed a few weeks ago.
Deadline reports Sacha risked his life to make the sequel, having attended a number of risky events for the film and he even “had to wear a bullet proof vest” on two separate occasions.
The actor was also reportedly nearly arrested following a run-in with ex-New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.
And reports claim he attended a far-right rally in Olympia, Washington.
Borat 2 premieres on Amazon Prime Video on October 23.
