Recently, out of sheer curiosity, I was searching “Worst Music Video Ever” on YouTube and I came across this…
When I first saw this video I thought to myself “this can’t be real, these guys can’t be serious.”
The funny thing was that I thought I recognised one of the characters on the video and as it turned out I was right.
This video was the creation of Australian comedian Santo Cilauro for his character Zladko Vladcik (or just Zlad!), a pop sensation in the fictitious Eastern European country of Molvania and this particular song was the Molvanian entry in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest.
To fully demonstrate the brilliance of this parody check out the lyrics below. Zlad’s attempted use of English is hilarious.
Zlad! – Elektronik, Supersonik
Hey baby wake up from your a sleep
We have arrived onto the future
And the whole world is become….
Hey baby ride with me away,
We doesn’t have much time,
My blue jeans is tight,
So onto my love rocket, climb,
Inside tank of fuel is not fuel, but love,
Above us, there is nothing above,
but the stars, above
All systems gone!
Prepare for downcount!
5….4….3….1! Off blast!
Fly away, my space rocket,
You no need put money in my pocket
The door is closed I just lock it,
(Ha) I put my (Ha) port plug in your socket (Ha Ha Ha)
The sonic sky is bright like fire
You and me gets higher and higher
Cut communication wire
Only thing can stop us is flat tire
Ha, Ha, Ha Ha Ha Ha
Hey love crusader
I want to be your space invader
For you I will descend the deepest moon crater
I is more stronger than Darth Vapour
Obey me I is your new dictator
For you is Venus, I am Mars
With you I is more richer than all the tzars
Make a wishes on a shooting stars
Then for you I will play on my cosmic guitars!
Ladies and Gentlemen
Fasten your beltseats
We has commenced our decent
I trust you enjoy this flight
As much as you enjoy this accent
Now back on Earth its time for downsplash
Into sea of eternal glory my spaceship crash
People have arrived for cheer me from near and far
And as I float I open door and shout
“I am worlds biggest, washed-up superstar!”
As for sure as the sun rises in the west
Of all the seas and all the boats I am the bestest
Come, let me put ring of Jupiter on your finger
Then like a smell around you I will forever linger
Ok, is time for end, no more will I sang
Let me take you back in time,
I want for you to experience big bang
Long live space race
Long live, Molvania
Everytime I watch this video I immediately feel better about my own writing so in a way, this is therapy
