All the Details Behind the Rudy Giuliani Prank Scene in ‘Borat 2’
Update: On Oct. 20, Amazon gave journalists advanced screeners of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which shows the full scene of a prank that Sacha Baron Cohen pulled on former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani this summer. The scene stars newcomer actress Maria Bakalova, who plays Borat’s daughter Tutar Sagdiyev, as she’s interviewing Giuliani as a conservative journalist covertly planning to offer herself to Donald Trump’s lawyer as a concubine.
Through the interview, Tutar touches Giuliani’s leg, shares a drink with him, and eventually suggests the two should have a drink in the bedroom of the hotel suite in which she is interviewing him. There, it appears that Tutar removes a microphone from Giuliani’s shirt and jacket. At that point, Giuliani lays on the bed and puts his hands inside his pants after saying, “You can give me your phone number and your address.” At this point, Cohen appears in lacy pink underwear to stop the interview, saying, “She 15! She too old for you!” Giuliani lets out a brief, “ope!” and bolts up from the bed. After a brief exchange with Giuliani, Cohen and Bakalova fled the scene.
The scene as it appears in the movie is significantly different from how Giuliani characterized the events of the fake interview this summer.
A few hours after a screengrab of the scene appeared online showing Giuliani reaching into his pants, he responded to the footage on Twitter.
“The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment,” Giuliani said in a statement. “At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar.”

See the original description of the events from July 9 below:
On Tuesday, former New York City Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani went to the Mark Hotel for what he believed was a legitimate interview about how the Trump administration has handled COVID-19. Amid the interview, Sacha Baron Cohen allegedly burst in wearing a pink lace bikini, yelling and screaming before running out again. Giuliani, faced with the grave threat of a person in a bikini, called the cops.
“This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit,” Giuliani told Page Six, after the incident. “It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn’t what I would call distractingly attractive.” Not only is that a surprisingly detailed description of what Cohen was wearing, but it’s a pretty transphobic notion that really highlights that Giuliani has no fundamental understanding of trans people.
“I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me,” said afterward. And yet, Giuliani, no stranger to wasting taxpayers’ money, called the cops on a man dressed in a bikini who burst into an interview. Cohen was seen running out of the hotel in a bathrobe, sprinting down 77th Street. He was not apprehended.
Even though he was pranked so hard that he had to call the cops, Giuliani admitted he was a fan of Cohen’s movies. Page Six also noted that Giuliani assumed a Borat accent and said, “‘She is my sister. She is number four prostitute in all of Kazakhstan,” noting that he loved that line because he, too, has been to Kazakhstan.
Anyway, in the ongoing saga between Sacha Baron Cohen and Republicans, Cohen remains undefeated—no matter who is trying to laugh the pranks off after the fact. Cohen has been on a tear lately. Last weekend, he posed as a country singer at a right-leaning Washington state event, taking the stage and encouraging the crowd to join in on a racist chant.
Though Cohen and his Showtime team have yet to release a statement, seems there’s a pretty solid chance that we’re gearing up for Who Is America? season two.
