Europe Doesn't Know What It Is Missing

A video of one of the candidates who won't be representing Spain in this year's Eurovision 2010. It's hard to say whether his television career is at an end or whether he will soon be given his own show. Quality television, sin publicidad.



Ever since Rodolfo Chikilicuatre won the right to be the Spanish representative a couple of years ago there have been moves to dilute the amount of popular democracy involved in the selection process so that the winner will be less friki. This year several potentially successful candidates were simply disqualified on a variety of pretexts as soon as it looked as if they might win. Whilst John Cobra almost made it through to the end, the Aznarines weren't even given a chance. There's no justice.

Updated: As it seems that the youtube video has been blocked by RTVE, here is a taste of what is left after the censors have been at work:

1). The song

2). The aftermath

Jejeje - RTVE have blocked the vid.

So I see - I've posted links to RTVE's version and the full one was still here - http://vimeo.com/9670546 - last time I looked.

Laugh? Cry? No idea. Might have been better if they'd managed to sing in tune. Certainly can do without all the crotch-grabbing. Sheesh. At least Chikilequatre had hair (and lots of it).

Looks like he's a pop-culture phenomenon already. John Cobra vs Chunk Norris...

You can still find it on dailymotion.

It's blocked outside of Spain too (at least from the UK where I am now); I'm not really suprised he has been disqualified, though, however good his song - and I thought it quite good.

I was shocked when I saw Cobra's performance. I couldn't figure out if it was some twisted joke or if he was serious! I suppose Eurovasion just ain't what it used to be, eh?

I prefer the chikiliquatre...
this guy is something similar (a joke in the eurovision contest) but much worse because he is not funny!!! he is only rude....
