“My plan is to help repel the propaganda against the beautiful people of Kazakhstan,” said Alki David, the Coca-Cola bottling heir. “My family has had business interests there for decades. “Borat has portrayed their people as foolish or backwards but the opposite is true. They are a wise people with a beautiful culture, we could all learn something from them.”

What’s behind Alki’s love of Kazakstan?

“When I was a boy a Khazakh goat herder, Erasyl, rescued me from a mine with his lame horse,” Alki recounts. “He saved my life, I’ll never forget it… Erasyl in Kazakh translates to ‘noble hero.’ My father rewarded him handsomely, of course. Sadly, he was lost in an operation against Sadaam Hussein during America’s war with Iraq. It’s in his memory that I defend this great nation. That Borat would shame and slander an entire people, as a mere gimmick seeking money and laughs, is incomprehensible.”
