Episode Summary

In New York to sell book ideas to high-profile publishers and agents, Ali G pitches the following would-be bestsellers: "A Kiss on the Lips," a vibrating book designed to stimulate the mind and more; "The Lord of the Rings," an adaptation of the hit films; an Ali G "autobiography" of President Bush; and more. Bruno chats with fashion guru Leon Hall about which celebrities should be kept "in the ghetto" or sent on a "train to Auschwitz"; later, Bruno and "fashion police" James Campbell and Randy McLaughlin rate the attire of such Hollywood notables as Renee Zellweger, Peter Jackson and Paris Hilton. Ali G interviews U.S. Olympic president (and former swimming star) John Nabor about the upcoming games in Greece, pondering why there isn't an Olympic competition for world-record events like Tallest Man or Longest Moustache. Borat travels to Nashville and Tucson to "learn to be country star." There, he demonstrates a Kazakhstan line dance to willing square dancers, gets songwriting inspiration from country-music legend Porter Wagoner, and tests out a liberating new tune at a local lounge.moreless

  • NOTES (1)

    • This episode contains the controversial "In My Country There is Problem" song performed by Borat (Cohen). The song contained Anti-Semitic remarks ("Throw the Jew down the well") in which some of the patrons of the bar sang along.
      The Ambassador of Kazakhstan and the The Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish anti-racism organization, complained to HBO about Cohen's anti-Jewish lyrics. It is only fitting to note that Cohen himself is Jewish. The full lyrics to the song can be found in this episode's recap.
