An Embarrassment on A Global Scale: Playing Borat’s National Anthem Here in Kuwait

24 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!

AlJazeera Sport Online Streaming

JazeeraSport Online Streaming

It seems that everybody is joining the online streaming party. After Abu Dhabi Sport made all of the Barclays Premier League matches available online from the beginning of last season, Aljazeera Sport has now the ability to stream all of its 12 channels online.

 

Not all of the content is available though. As when I was trying to watch last weekends FA Cup matches, I kept getting an error. I hope this gets sorted out and they get the licences for streaming all of their sporting events.

Jazeera Sport Error

Access is currently free. It was implied that it will be free during November only but it is still free as far as I can tell. There is also an iPad app that make up for iOS’s lack of flash support. But I was able to use AirPlay to watch the game on my TV.

The Most Badass Flash Mob Ever

4 Sep 2011  4 Comments

We all have seen a number of flash mobs but none come close to how cool this flash mob is. In New Zealand, this flash mob is doing the HAKA, a traditional dance that is also usually preformed by the All Blacks, New Zealand’s rugby team.

False Advertising?

ADMCSport Offer

Got an email from Abu Dhabi Sport channel telling me that they had an “offer” for existing members for their online subscription, I enjoyed their online service at first last year but as it became more popular the more important games became almost impossible to watch and video just keeps buffering and disconnecting.

But hey 10KD for a whole season? not a bad backup plan. So I follow the link, like their Facebook page (I hate it when companies do that) and follow the newly provided link.

ADMCSport

The price is almost double ($65 instead of $35). I am “almost” sure that this is just a mistake. but the offer ends tomorrow and the link is broken. Or  are they just hoping that after going through that you would just say “the hell with it” and just subscribe?
