- Adaptation Expansion: Borat started as a cultural commentary character in a series of sketches on Da Ali G Show.
- As Long as It Sounds Foreign: The "Kazakh" stuff in the credits is actually Polish, and the "Kazakh village" in the beginning is actually Romanian.
- The Backwards R: The Cyrillic character Д used in the movie's title is really pronounced similar to "d", not an "a". The DVD release also had a literal backwards R. (The goal was to make the DVD look like a cheap counterfeit.)
- Bland-Name Product: The DVD's top part is printed to look like it was burned onto a Demorez brand recordable disc. It even has a parody of the Memorex slogan -- "Is life? No. Demorez."
- Notable Original Music: The "Kazakhstan National Anthem", which Borat attempts to sing to the tune of the American National Anthem and is played with its own music during the credits.
- Star-Making Role: This film indeed launched Sasha Baron Cohen's Hollywood career. He was previously a fan of Guilty Pleasure and was only famous on television.
