Had to take a look at this, whether or not you are on the boards. The idea was very MAD magazine and a clever pairing.
However, your execution did not live up to my expectations. Some of it was cute (Borat was her grandfather, calling Pamela) but most of the jokes fell flat and the piece didn't seem to know where to go and as a result just ended without satisfying me.
If you were to expand on it, I think it would be good if the curator were Borat. You should spoof more of both movies. What clues did Borat leave? This is a spoof of the Davinci Code, where is the mystery? Make Langdoni and expert on Kazakhstan's customs and he has to interpret the bizarre clues.
Try not to create too many of your own scenes, use ones from the movies. Explore your subject more. See how you can connect both movies. Watch them both with this objective in mind and you will be surprised at the connections you will come up with.
This is a really good idea. Put some energy into it and do it with the flair it deserves.
