NewstalkZB reports:

’s shooting team has demanded an apology from Kuwait after a spoof national anthem from the satirical movie was played at a medal ceremony instead of the official version.

The blunder took place as Maria Dmitrienko stood on top of the podium to celebrate her gold medal performance at a shooting championships in Kuwait.

But instead of the Kazkah 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.

Here is a link to the official anthem, and the Borat one is embedded below.

Incredible they could get it mixed up. I can only imagine someone stuck it in their files thinking Kazakhstan would never win a medal at anything!
