It's early, but there have been no national anthem miscues akin to Kuwait's botching of Kazakhstan and Serbia's national anthem in an athletic competition in March. After a Kazakh victory, the Kuwaitis played a spoof from Sacha Baron Cohen’s 2006 film "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" that portrayed Kazakhs as backward and bigoted. The song, banned in Kazakhstan, includes the lines: “Kazakhstan’s prostitutes cleanest in the region / Except, of course, Turkmenistan’s.”
