Borat’s Kazakhstan national anthem accidentally played for gold medal winner in Kuwait (video)



Ah, the pride of winning a gold medal for one’s country and getting to hear your national anthem played. It’s an experience any athlete looks forward to, except for those from Kazakhstan. They will spend the rest of their lives fearing what will actually be played, thanks to Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”

Kazakhstan’s Maria Dmitrienko was on the medal stand at the Arab Shooting Championship (AKA Congressman Peter King’s favorite sporting event of the year) when the Kuwaiti hosts played Borat’s fake national anthem instead.

Here are Borat’s Kazakhstan national anthem lyrics:

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 nosy people with bone in their brain.

Kazakhstan industry best in the world.
We invented 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!

And here’s what should have been playing for the real Kazakhstan national anthem:

Sky of golden sun,
Steppe of golden seed,
Legend of courage -
Take a look at my country!

From the antiquity
Our heroic glory emerged,
They did not give up their pride
My Kazakh people are strong!

Chorus:
My country, my country,
As your flower I will be planted,
As your song I will stream, my country!
My native land My Kazakhstan!

The way was opened to the posterity
I have a vast land.
Its unity is proper,
I have an independent country.

It welcomed the time
Like an eternal friend,
Our country is happy,
Such is our country.

So yeah, slight difference.

To be fair to Kuwait, it’s not like people in Kazakhstan are able to get their own national anthem correct. Earlier this month, a ski event in Kostanay, Kazakhstan was kicked off with Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca” instead.
