Borat Speaks To CNN

 - Nov 5, 2006   Updated: Apr 21 2011
By now, it would be tough NOT to know about Borat, but you might not know that Borat has been interviewed on CNN! That's right, Sacha Baron Cohen actually made a major news appearance to promote his hit movie, "BORAT". It's entertaining, watch the video.

Implications - Pop culture thrives off the ideas that are offensive to other cultures such as Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat. By having a controversy surrounding the brand, audiences are more likely to respond to these ideas to help understand why others are making a large deal about it. The more controversial the product or brand may be, the more likely it will do better in regards to sales and popularity.
