Borat Named One Of Britain’s Most Powerful Men

GQ came out on Monday, with its annual list of Britain’s most powerful men and Sacha Baron Cohen, the man behind Borat, found himself in the number nineteen slot. The success of his film “Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” earned him a spot on the list just behind Prince William, as well as a Golden Globe earlier this year. According to the magazine:

“Not since John Lennon has an English entertainer had such an effect on the world: George Bush was briefed on him, the Kazakh government briefed against him and the film Borat … hit the No. 1 spot in America last autumn.”

I wonder if immediately thereafter, Bush also had to be briefed on where and what the hell Kazakhstan is.
