YouTuber David Dobrik has been busy lately. First, his US voter registration drive may have been the biggest of all time: 120,000 according to Headcount.org. Then, Borat crashed at his house, literally.
By directing his fans to a voter-registration portal run by HeadCount.org, the New York-based organization was able to count up how many people registered from Dobrik’s Instagram post: nearly 120,000. It’s the single largest voting drive in the 16-year history of HeadCount, which has worked with many celebrities, mostly musicians. Other recent HeadCount partners included Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande.
Then, as part of the promotion for Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Borat himself, aka Sasha Baron Cohen, stopped by the mansion to meet Dobrik’s stupefied friends. Dobrik heard the word pangolin for the first time in a joke that was a little too erudite for the assembled crowd. Read the room, Borat!
