A costume worn by Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen) in the 2002 British comedy Ali G Indahouse.
In the film, Ali finds himself being used as an unwitting pawn by the Deputy Prime Minister (Charles Dance) to bring down the Prime Minister (Michael Gambon), but unexpectedly finds himself as an incredibly popular MP.
Ali wears this costume in the opening scene of the movie, a dream sequence where he takes on a Latino gang in a gun fight in Los Angeles. The costume features a red, yellow and white baseball-style top, emblazoned with the word 'WESTSIDE' in big red lettering with Velcro® fastening. A pair of yellow trousers, red and white Nike® trainers and a black and red elasticated hat complete the ensemble.
The top and trousers are both made from yellow acrylic. It shows wear from storage and age, most notably the acrylic which is cracked and flaking in several areas on the top, causing the lettering to come away. The trousers, hat and trainers are all in excellent condition.
Materials: Acrylic, Man-Made Woven Fibres, Rubber, Velcro®.
