Bizarre Chinese Euro 2012 advert predicting fall of Europe?

Firstly, many thanks to Ian for discovering this bizarre video. It’s supposedly an advert for a Chinese pay TV company called NOW TV (looks like NWO) to promote their coverage of the Euro 2012 Football (see soccer) tournament. It is an adaption of an old Russian patriotic song called Farewell of Slavianka. But for some reason, it has been adapted by a Hong Kong music producer Damon Chui from Zoo Music and the video is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! It shows a soccer game between two teams. One Asiatic looking team wearing Light Blue and Gold perhaps representing Ukraine and the other wearing black and ominous looking with red-demon eyes. But the backdrop shows war in Europe with images of London, Paris, Rome and others being bombed and shelled. This continues through the whole video with eventually the battle and soldiers spilling onto the pitch.

There is heaps of hidden symbolism and the whole concept is very creepy. Rather than me rabbit on, have a watch for yourself and share your thoughts below.

I’ve tried to find a translation of the lyrics and I think I managed to find the original here. I used translate-google so no responsibility for the translation, but if it’s anywhere near correct, it’s pretty disturbing for a soccer commercial.

Translation

Blasts of flame forehead blood flow
The crowd toward the front enemy people
Cracked earth are the kingdom quick makeover
I can make a name written on the back
Beat to death to win this war he is
Grab rapids break cliff yesterday
Gordon peak win heaven but unfinished
Continue to attack someone will appear
Why, then abstained in the ring
Half-seriously injured parachutist
Executioner enemy too good welcome
Like the man in the iron dump
Locker room team are weak to strong
# Came time to decide
The Khan continues to flow
Li won the hearts opponents
Who is to be an epoch-making against his comrades
Repeat *
Emergency vehicles into the second half full of oil
Tanks endure ten gun when revenge
When the Jets have about spying
Talk talk Zhenshi force has left the organization
Repeat # *
Nushe the flame forehead blood flow
The crowd toward the front enemy people
Cracked earth are the kingdom quick makeover
I can make a name written on the back
Nushe the flame forehead blood flow
Crowd of people before riding the enemy again
Cracked earth are broken at my feet
Make it from the name written in front of you
Beat to death to win this war he is


Here is a version of the original, sung by the Red Army Choir

Lyrics can be found here and more info on the original song here.

Looking forward to hearing everyone’s interpretation of this video.
