Kazakhstan's glorious anthem mishap
« on: March 24, 2012, 09:44:06 AM »
This is just unbelievable... a spoof version from the 2006 satirical movie Borat was played at the 10th Arab Shooting Championship in Kuwait instead of the Kazakhstan's national anthem.

LOL, how the heck does this accidentally happen? My answer: It doesn't.

I can't believe this happened... incredibly rude.
Still, she handled it really well.

I also read about it here:

I love the idea that the 'downloaded the wrong anthem from the internet'.

When do the copyright police arrive?

:D

I saw that, but thought it best to just leave it alone in the event that the thread descends into one of those piracy threads. But the irony is just wonderful.

Y'know, it kind of makes a good case for countries to have a "CI" page on a web site - Country Image instead of Corporate Image. That way they could specify what music should be used, colours, spacings, etc. It would be an excellent resource for situations like this, and many others too of course. I suppose a CC or public domain license would be best there.

Oh god... They just can't win. What did they do wrong, or who did they piss off?

On the trivia side, that album was the first one mixed completely digitally. Producer: Charles Dye.
