Teapack Pushes The Envelope…….

Looks like the Israeli entry “Push The Button” is raising eyebrows for being too improper for the Eurovision song contest. Finnish YLE state TV reports the following on the brouhaha :

“Israel has chosen a song to represent itself, that tells of nuclear destruction and crazy leaders, that breaks the accepted rules of conduct. Finland’s Eurovision producer, Kjell Ekholm says that Israel’s song will now be evaluated for its suitability.”

Well as a friend recently stated, demons are ok but not this? View video here. *L* KGS

  1. In 1982 the Finnish entry was a very political song solely about bombs, and nobody had a problem with that. Maybe because the bombs they feared weren’t Iranian but American.
    Yet again Israel is singled out.
    Please expose this hypocrisy.

    Enclosed is a link to the (very poorly translated) words to the Finnish entry back in 1982.
    The song title literally means “Sleep while bombs are falling” ie to be unaware of imminent danger and/or oversleep.

    And here’s the hilariously inept video for the song
