( 4UMF NEWS ) Borat Spoof Anthem Mistake:
The blockbuster 2006 hit movie “Borat” may have put Kazakhstan on the map for millions, but its bawdy take on the Central Asian nation’s anthem is a far cry from the real thing.
Winning first prize for target shooting at the 10th Arab Shooting Championship on Thursday, Mariya Dmitriyenko’s face turned noticeably red as she listened to the offensive lyrics proclaiming “Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region.”
The “Borat” spoof version of the anthem also makes fun of the Kazakhstani president.
Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place
From Plains of Tarashek to Northern fence of Jewtown
Come grasp the mighty penis of our leader
From junction with the testes to tip of its face!
Despite her obvious discomfort, Dimtriyenko kept her poise after realizing the audience hadn’t noticed it was the Borat-anthem, and embraced the gold medal being awarded to her, a video of the ceremony shows.
The event’s organizing committee apologized for the mistake and repeated the medal ceremony, playing the proper national anthem of Kazakhstan, the Kazakh-based news agency reports.
