  • Borat anthem played to Kazakh gold medallist

    BBC

    The medal ceremony at a Kuwaiti shooting event provoked bemusement and red faces when the wrong anthem was played to Kazakh gold medallist Maria Dmitrienko.

    Following a mix up with an internet download, the winner had to listen to a spoof anthem written for the film Borat.

    Oh dear :p

  • I chuckled

  • I reckon something like Chitty chitty bang bang would be a good replacement for the English national anthem

    that, or the theme from The Archers.

  • Some of these Anthem gaffes are crackers:

    Anthem gaffes

    - Instead of singing "we love your mountains" in his attempt on the Croatian anthem, an English opera singer sings "my penis is a mountain".

    - Swiss TV runs obsolete "Deutschland uber alles" subtitles over the German national anthem.

    - Grenada plays Taiwan's anthem at a ceremony inaugurating a China-funded stadium

    - Saudis play Syrian anthem for Lebanese football team.

    - Belgian party leader Yves Leterme sings French anthem when asked to sing the Belgian.

    I read that at one point in the past - I think the 50s or 60s - a Mexican driver got a major surprise victory at a Formula One race somewhere (as in he was a rookie nobody driving a car that usually managed a half dozen laps at the back of the field before the engine exploded or something), catching the organisers completely unprepared. They didn't have a copy of the Mexican national anthem to play before the trophy ceremony, so improvised the best way they could by putting on a record of Frank Sinatra singing South Of The Border, Down Mexico Way.
