Will A SWOK Meteorologist Be In The New Borat Sequel?
Even as the pandemic lingers throughout the world, nothing will stop Hollywood from making movies. One sequel nobody ever expected to see is Borat Part 2. Honestly, after Sacha Baron Cohen managed to prank so many in the first movie fifteen years ago, how is he going to pull it off again? Especially since he's going with the same character name, accent, and even clothes. He's a wild man... but I suppose the hardest tasks require the strongest wills, it'll be interesting to see how it plays out.
If you didn't know, one of our local meteorologists was one of the pranked broadcasters in the original. Know who it was? If you guessed News Channel 6 Chief Meteorologist Ken Johnson, you hit it right on the nose.
I know Ken and I have chatted about it in the past, but it's been a while, but I'm gonna try to remember the details here... Apparently, it was a day that started out like any other, but soon went off the rails. The air staff was informed that they would have a guest on the show, a man who was filming a documentary about his trip to America. Sacha Baron Cohen did his thing (as you'll see below) and nobody was none-the-wiser. Hilarity ensued. Ken has been a terrificly good sport about it over the years. I would hope others would take it with a grain of salt as good as he has. Skip to the 1:45 mark to see Ken make movie history.
I'm still trying to figure out how this is going to work... Is it going to be another mockumentary film? Or just a scripted sequel? Is he still searching for Pamela Anderson? Is the big man and side-kick still alive and kicking? Only time can answer the questions.
