Submission + - Borat anthem played to Kazakh gold medallist (bbc.co.uk) 1

cybernanga writes: 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.

Borat anthem played to Kazakh gold medallist

  • This is one of those things that is simultaneously awesome and shitty.

    Awesome for all kinds of reasons - like what it says about the professionalism of the people running the event, the pervasiveness of Borat, etc.
    And shitty for Dmitrienko and Kazahkstan in general, neither of which deserved to be the butt of a joke at this event.

Stupidity, like virtue, is its own reward.
