In Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020), why does Borat call USA as US&A? Is there any reason behind it?

    from Borat wikipedia broken English that appears poorly printed, indicating that there are "More movie discs available from US&A" Dec 2, 2020 at 9:03

I didn't see the movie yet, but it's full of intentional spelling/grammar errors:

  • the title contains the 'duplicate word' Moviefilm
  • the tag line 'Wear mask. Save live.' - even taking headlinese into account, that should be 'Save lives'.

'US&A' is probably just another intentional error. It even sort of reminds me that the word 'of' in 'United States of America' isn't included in the official abbreviation.

    Also note the full titles of the two moviefilms: "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" and "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan". Dec 6, 2020 at 8:09
