Wa Wa Wee Wa: The Origin of Borat's Favorite Catchphrase

Soon, in our country there was problem: People mimicked Borat’s catchphrases, \"very nice\" and “wa wa wee wa,” incessantly. The latter phrase was used to denote surprise or happiness on Borat’s part. Wa wa wee wa is Hebrew, which Cohen speaks throughout the film and which helped make Borat a hit in Israel. The original Borat also sees Cohen singing a popular Hebrew folk song, “Koom Bachur Atzel,” or “get up lazy boy,” among other Hebrew mentions. It remains to be seen how much of it he’ll be speaking in the sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
