Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat Performs Health Exam, Swaps Pants with Jimmy Kimmel

Kimmel endured a "Kazakh health questionnaire/exam" before handing over his trousers to please Borat's daughter.

Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss his new film Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, the Jason Woliner-directed sequel to the 2006 mockumentary. But in typical Borat fashion, things did not go at all as planned.

Borat Sagdiyev, the gray-suited journalist working for Kazakhstan's state-run TV network, arrived at the late-night show with some precautions in place to battle the novel coronavirus pandemic — a magnifying glass to spot the virus and a frying pan to knock it out.

"He is a coward, the virus is a coward!" Borat screamed as he slammed the pan on various surfaces, all while host Kimmel repeatedly explained that the method wouldn't work.

Before the planned interview could take place, Borat told Kimmel he needed to perform a basic "Kazakh health questionnaire/exam" that involved asking the host if he has been around any Jewish people for a period of 15 minutes. "All of our writers and none of our camera guys are Jews," Kimmel explained.

Borat's questionnaire also included asking Kimmel if because he was a "member of the Hollywood elite," if he had recently drunk "unpasteurized children's blood," and for contract tracing purposes, if the host could give the names of the last 12 prostitutes he had been with.

Borat's daughter (played by Irina Nowak) later arrived on the show with a request for the host to give her his pants, resulting in a hilarious exchange between Kimmel and the father-daughter duo. Borat swiftly took off his pants, revealing his signature thong (and some welcomed pixelation) as he urged Kimmel to trade tousers. Eventually taking his own pants off, the host hid behind his chair as Borat and his daughter gleefully shook their newly acquired American souvenir.

Prior to the stealth sequel to his 2006 mockumentary being released this year, Cohen (also known for playing cinematic characters like Ali G and Bruno) had gone quiet in the pranks department since his 2018 Showtime series Who Is America?

That political satire series saw Cohen tackle American identity by duping politicians and pundits, including Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for Donald Trump's 2016 U.S. presidential run, former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, former Alabama Rep. Jason Spencer (who resigned after his controversial appearance), former California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm debuts on Amazon Prime Video on Oct. 23.
