The man, who achieved world fame with figures such as Ali G., Borat and Bruno, obviously cheated on stage on Saturday unrecognized – and sang in the hearts of some fans. With simple country sounds and provocative rhymes, the comedian tried to fuel the audience – which he managed to do with some: For example, the answer to what you should do with journalists – “Chop em up like the Saudis do” (Chop them up like the Saudis do) – enjoyed great popularity among singers. Another big topic in the eight and a half minute song was the corona virus: “USA is the best, we don’t need no COVID test”, Cohen sang with all his heart.
In the meantime, the organizers are said to have already noticed that something is wrong and have tried, according to their own statements, to prevent the performance. However, armed security forces, which Cohen is said to have hired, would have prevented them from entering the stage. After the song, Sacha Baron Cohen and his team are said to have fled in a rescue car.
“We were fooled, I’m ashamed of everyone who sang along,” the organizers said in an interview. Rumor has it that this interview was filmed by Sacha Baron Cohen, who is said to have returned in other disguise.
There was still no comment on the action from him.
