Could this be so bad it’s actually good?
Poland have played up their national stereotypes during the selection process for the country’s football anthem for Euro 2012.
A group of folk-singing grandmothers called ”Jarzebina” (Polish for rowanberry) won the race to represent their nation with their tune “Koko Euro Spoko”, which translates loosely as Clucking Cool Euro.
Wearing traditional garb that resembled a group of nuns, Jarzebina, who are a collection of woman aged between 32 and 82, belted out their winning tune during a public concert on Wednesday night in Warsaw.
Koko Euro Spoko has already gone viral, attaining over 600,000 views on YouTube.
