In what may easily be the biggest PR fail of 2012, event organizers played Borat's outrageously offensive fake Kazakhstan anthem at a medal ceremony for actual people from Kazakhstan.
Maria Dmitrienko, who was being awarded a gold medal at Arab Shooting Championships in Kuwait, was noticeably thrown as the false anthem played, and many participants (and the entire county, for that matter) were understandably enraged by the incident.
In case you don't yet grasp the depth of this scandal, here are a few sample lyrics from the fake national anthem the event organizers accidentally played:
"Kazakhstan greatest country in the world...All other countries are run by little girls. Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region...Come grasp the might phenis of our leader...From junction with the testes to tip of its face!"
The group that organized the event claim they accidentally downloaded the wrong song from the internet.
