Appearance: Bearded; wearing overalls, plaid shirt and a straw hat; the singing of a fairly erratic American accent.
I take it this is his last character. You’re right. It would have been filmed to entertain an audience of rightwingers at a march for Our Rights 3 rally in Olympia, Washington.
What form of entertainment to take? He said that he sang a country where it is good to number about coronaviruses being a hoax, and other hot-button topics, and has managed to get the rather sparse audience to sing along with the lyrics.
Sparse audience? Yes, the joke is that it was even more poorly attended than the average for Trump rally.
Will you give us an example of the writing of the lyrics? You bet. “Mask-wearers. What are we going to do? Inject them with the Wuhan flu. Journalists. What are we going to do? Chop ’em up like the Saudis do.”
Sounds like a riot. It’s almost become a when the organisers rumbled him – the lyrics were a little too further, even for the pro-gun, anti-federal government, the bearded of the state of Washington. Baron Cohen (who has yet to confirm that it was him) had to make an exit early in a private ambulance. Injured, fortunately.
What was the purpose of the waterfall? As always, it is to be discreet on what the footage is for, but the assumption is that it will be used in the next series of Who Is America?
What is America? A satire show on Channel 4 and the US pay-TV network Showtime, which has got mixed reviews when it came out.
How disappointing. You’re right. It’s just that if you expected a lot from this that, during its diffusion in 2018, it was a bit of a damp squib. The show has its moments, but, in particular, the sequence in which the Baron Cohen, in character as Israeli counter-terrorism expert Colonel Erran Morad, says the politician, Republican Jason Spencer on how to detect terrorists.
How? With a selfie stick below someone who wears a burqa to see if this is a real woman or a guy with explosives.
How did Spencer react? He has bought into the idea completely. He also used the N-word, mocked the Chinese, and exposed her buttocks when Morad told him that it was a tried-and-trusted technique to repel the terrorists of the Islamic State.
I guess it has not helped his political career. He resigned from the Georgia house of representatives.
Any other infamous traps? Morad captivated gun enthusiasts with the idea of arming a new generation of kids, known as “the Kinderguardians”, to protect the American schools.
Not to be confused with: Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno Gehard, And Admiral General Haffaz Aladeen.
Say: “Baron Cohen is a genius and a fearless exposure of the right-wing propaganda.”
Not say: “Yes” to an interview, if he is approached by a man disguised with a rolling accent.
