Denmark Given Surprise Euro 2012 Send-Off, Operatic Flash Mob Perform National Anthem Serenade (Video)
By Chris Wright
As organised by a Danish bank, a ‘flash mob’ – and I squirm as I type those grizzly words – was assembled at Copenhagen Airport to serenade the Danish national squad with a surprise operatic rendition of their national anthem before boarding the plane to Euro 2012…
All together now:
“Oh Denmark, the hallowed land of our fathers.
We are the war-like fiends, sworn to shed the blood of our enemies.
Proud warriors all, ne’er a battle lost or shirked,
We dangle the innards of our slain foes on our mantelpieces with glee.
Beware, a Danish man is skilled with sword and bow,
If you make us eat Marmite, we’ll cut off the scalps of your children.”
