The video, the heroes of which mention Borat's phrase, while traveling across Kazakhstan, was released by the national company Kazakh Tourism. The authors of the idea were the American Dennis Keane, who studied in Kazakhstan on an exchange, and now lives in Almaty and conducts tourist excursions, as well as his colleague Ermek Utemisov.

As Utemisov told The New York Times newspaper, the attitude of some Kazakhstani people towards the films about Borat is changing.

“This is a new generation. They have Twitter and Instagram, they sit on Reddit. They know English and understand memes. They understand everything, we are inside the same world. Kazakhstan is globalized,”he said.

Kazakh Tourism noted that at first they did not want to react to the release of a new part of the epic about a Kazakh journalist, but then the position changed - mentioning Kazakhstan in the media could save the country's tourism industry, which had fallen into a difficult situation.

The film about Borat Sagdiev, a journalist from Kazakhstan who came to the United States, was released in 2006. Its full name sounded like "Borat: Studying American Culture for the Benefit of the Glorious People of Kazakhstan." The scandalous film never made it to the big screens in a number of post-Soviet countries, and the mention of Kazakhstan in the film led to a major diplomatic scandal.

The second part of the high-profile film was released on the Amazon Prime Video platform on October 23.
