Kazakh Shooting Team Wins Gold….(Oops, what’s that song?)

The shooting competition took place in Kuwait, the Kazakh team won the gold. (Congratulations Kazakhistan!). But then when the winner took the stand and the nation anthem played something was direly wrong!

Instead of playing the Kazakh national anthem, the song being played was in fact the pseudo-national anthem from the fake documentary “Borat!” “The spoof song praises Kazakhstan for its superior potassium exports and for having the cleanest prostitutes in the region.”  

Oops…

It’s funny, but at the same time imagine you were the one to have won the gold. You step up, with nationalistic pride and then hear a debauchery of your nation instead of your anthem. It’d definitely strip the icing off the cake a bit. I wager it was either a deliberate gag/insult or a more likely just a misguided slip-up. It happens….
