Borat turning Japanesey and Moai-Tiki gods concur

Over the past couple days I’ve been seeing these weird photos of a Borat mustache promotion on the streets of Tokyo—such as the one below with the sacred “Moai” head of Shibuya—without any context or explanation.

I heard about the Borat ….finally the film comes to Japan… The campaign is a little bit strange. They have a mustache discount to see the movie (fake is okay). This is the special site mustache photo competition. This weekend, he will go to a maid cafe in Akihabara. Hmm…

Ah ha!
Now I understand.
And, here’s a photo of Borat turning Japanesey while going to maid cafe in “Akiba” which is the current slang for Tokyo’s Akihabara Electric [Otaku] Town (秋葉原電気[オタク]街).

    …Warm up these darkest depths of winter with one of the most expensive exotica albums ever. Yep, this one goes for hundreds of dollars on ebay, and I have no idea why. For one thing, it's not a music album so much as a tourist souvenir record, complete with nerdy narration. As such, it's a fascinating time-travel back to '60s kitsch America…
