Flashback Friday – Sacha Baron Cohen - Talladega Nights

I was listening to my iPod the other day when some jazz popped up. I immediately thought of this scene. ha

SBC plays a gay French Formula One driver and this is his first scene. I don't know what is funnier, his bad accent, or the discussion regarding crepes being thin pancakes.

Having a great weekend.

Ha! I love it!! I've never seen the film but I'm crazy for Will Ferrell. He makes my head spin. I love Chinese food and really thin pancakes too.

Too funny! This was actually on TV last night and will be on TBS all weekend. I love SBC's interpretation of a Formula One driver :)

Heaven! I'm forcing myself not to watch this for a third time right now.

I'm a Will Ferrell fan who hated most of 'Talladega Nights' and a Sascha Baron Cohen fan who loathes most of 'Borat'--and their scenes in this movie were worth ten times the price of admission. Thanks so much for posting this.

Also, I'm a sucker for a great crepe, so I love how the whole bar gets really into the "thin pancakes" love.

I'm *totally* going to be stealing the lines "Why do you want me to break your arm so badly?" and "Your injury is one of ignorance and pride." in the near future. ;->

yvonne - As far as Will Ferrell movies go, I liked Anchor Man more that TN but I agree with you that the scenes with him and Sacha were hilarious.

That line about ignorance and pride kills me every time.
