Ard “The Aardvark” Matthews

So.....WTF happened last night?  Do we blame nerves for a blunder of this magnitude on such an auspicious occasion?
 I remember a country ready to hurt someone when the now infamous Ras Dumisani butchered our national anthem a couple of years ago in France.  He went on to blame the sound and basically said he was hung out to dry by the people responsible.  Last night, Ard Matthews apologised for his disgraceful attempt to cover our beautiful national anthem.  He reduced the indigenous verses of our anthem to a drunken sounding spray from a guy who’s disguised himself as a proud South African.
I can sing the national anthem in my sleep, after a night of proper debauchery, in front of the entire world for free and still sing it better then the Just Jinger front man did.
I accept his half arse apology and his half arse promise to make it up to the country.  I do however accept it with the knowledge that he just didn’t care enough to know it like the rest of us do.

  1. Hahaha. This was a total classic though. He claimed that he had never in his life experienced a blank in his life and thought maybe it was due to the fact he had not had anything to eat or drink.

    I don't accept his apology because i feel he doesn't know the South African Anthem. He should not only learn it but he shoudl also understand what it means
