'Borat' Parody Played As Kazakhstan National Anthem At Medal Ceremony

Kazakhstan's shooting team was left stunned after the 'Borat' parody of its national anthem was played at a medal ceremony in Kuwait instead of the real thing.

Sharpshooter Mariya Dmitrienko stood with her hand on her heart and a gold medal around her neck as the spoof praised Kazakhstan for its superior potassium exports and having the cleanest prostitutes in the region.

Kuwait Shooting Federation officials called it an "unintentional" mistake and apologized, but the Kazakh foreign ministry has demanded an investigation.

"We gave them a real Kazakhstan anthem to listen (to)," head coach Anvar Yunusmetov told Kazakhstan's Tengri News. "They offered their apologies and the next day three flags were raised, everyone stood up and the real anthem was played."

The team's coach told Kazakh media the organisers had downloaded the parody from the internet by mistake.
