'Borat' spoof Kazakh anthem played by mistake at sporting event

Sydney, Sat, 24 Mar 2012 ANI

Sydney, Mar 24 (ANI): Kazakhstan's shooting team had to bear listening to a spoof national anthem from the satirical movie 'Borat' after it was played accidentally at a medal ceremony in Kuwait.

They have now demanded an official apology.

The blunder took place as Maria Dmitrienko stood on top of the podium to celebrate her gold medal performance.

Instead of her country's national anthem, Dmitrienko had to listen to the song used in the 2006 smash hit film 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan', the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The film, made by British comic Sacha Baron Cohen, portrayed the country as a hotbed of backward quasi-mediaeval racists who drink horse urine and indulge in incest.

Red-faced organisers in Kuwait apologised for the embarrassing oversight before restaging the medal ceremony, this time with the correct version of the Kazakhstan anthem.

Kazakhstan's foreign office told local media that they were investigating the incident to avoid any similar errors in the future. (ANI)
