The Rugby World Cup 2011 is officially underway and with the start of the global tournament comes a host of musicians and people trying to make some cash from “uniting the nation” behind the Springboks.
You’ve already heard the more than odd Goldfish and Freshly Ground combo delivering an Official SA World Cup Rugby song that left most of us wondering how two very good groups could put together something so bad. Now… if you go anywhere near government delivered TV, you would hear the hook of the song in question every time anyone of the SABC channels comes back from an ad break. The other night I actually had the opportunity to see the music video for the SABC2 Official Rugby World Cup song (I know- its really confusing how there are so many “official” RWC songs) put together by the likes of Professor, Oskido, Oubaas from 7de Laan (yes, he really is in this song and he IS being strange) and Khanyi Mbau.
I honestly don’t know what to make of it. It is supposed to get everyone amped and doing the bok dance which is supposedly very similar to the near impossible diski dance invented for the Soccer World Cup last year. Personally it just confirmed the fact that I would never let Oubaas near my children.
