Map of Borat Sagdiyev in Kazakhstan by Aardvark Map
Yep, people are actually using the Sasha Baron Cohen character Borat of Kazakhstan to demonstrate their mapping program/plug-in/doohickee. The map below supposedly shows all the places in Kazakhstan that Borat has visited.
The film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan opens in 2 days, but it seems the world can hardly contain itself for the goofiness to come.
Of course, the real joke is on the people in the film, who don't realize that the character is an outrageous joke.
Katja, having being born in Almaty and lived the first 11 years of her life there, is actually quite excited to see this film. Of course, when my buddy Jim the limo driver was recently driving Nazarbayev to Kennebunkport to meet Bush the First, she was also excited to get Nazarbayev's autograph. I'm pretty sure we'll catch it this opening weekend. Maybe I'll have a chance to post a movie review as well.
