WATCH: The Time Borat Auditioned For MTV News

  • According to Amazon, Sacha Baron Cohen's new Borat film drew tens of millions of viewers over its opening weekend which is a reminder of just how popular he was back in 2006, when his first film hit.

    How big a deal was he? MTV News has unearthed this very nice audition tape from 14 years ago, where Borat assumed the very American moniker of "Hank Donuts."

    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
