An Embarrassment on A Global Scale: Playing Borat’s National Anthem Here in Kuwait24 Mar 2012 2 Comments
Kazakhstan’s shooting team has been left stunned after a comedy national anthem from the film Borat was played at a medal ceremony at championships in Kuwait instead of the real one.
I don’t know whether to die of laughter or feel ashamed. This is a catastrophe, I have no idea how can you mix those two up unless you were told to Google “Kazakhstan National Anthem” and he mistakenly selected the second video. But brings another question, shouldn’t they have a library of all the national anthems and flags since they are hosting an international event?
The Kazakhstani team has asked for an apology and they really deserve one. The organizers also got the Serbian national anthem wrong according to the Kazakhstani coach.
When you are on the pedestal and the song says:
“Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region” I would take offence.
Just for kicks, here is the full spoof anthem from the movie Borat:
Kazakhstan greatest country in the world. All other countries are run by little girls. Kazakhstan number one exporter of potassium.
Other countries have inferior potassium. Kazakhstan home of Tinshein swimming pool. It’s length thirty meter and width six meter. Filtration system a marvel to behold. It remove 80 percent of human solid waste.
Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place. From Plains of Tarashek to Norther fence of Jewtown. Kazakhstan friend of all except Uzbekistan. They very nosey people with bone in their brain.
Kazakhstan industry best in the world. We incented toffee and trouser belt. Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region. Except of course Turkmenistan’s.
Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan you very nice place. From Plains of Tarashek to Norther fence of Jewtown. Come grasp the might phenis of our leader. From junction with the testes to tip of its face!
