It was a grand entrance for Borat, a character from Kazakhstan played by Sacha Baron Cohen, also known as our beloved Ali G.
It was a full crowd at the Ryerson theatre Thursday night, and even Micheal Moore made an appearance on the red carpet, dashing in his khaki shorts and navy hoodie sweatshirt. "Who are you wearing?!" Yelled an abnoxious young man beside me. "Salvation Army," joked another.
The crowds went crazy, and in full character, Borat ran around giving high fives and thumbs up to everyone in the crowd.
His character is funny, if not extremely offensive, and makes vulgar jokes about sleeping with his sister while poking fun at the poverty of Kazakhstan.

"It is a very great honour to make a visit to the minor nation of Canadas. Our countries are very similar, and not only because of the projector system."
