After three consecutive years of Valentina Monetta we were seriously starting to wonder if she in fact is San Marino’s sole inhabitant. We even had doubts about San Marino being a proper country; perhaps it’s just a post box in Germany. You know, that eerie feeling you get when you’re about to realize you’ve been scammed. Yup. #thatfeeling.
So when Anita Simoncini & Michele Perniola was announced as the Sammarinese representatives for Eurovision 2015 we figured that there must be at least three people hailing from this enclaved microstate. And probably a handful more, which coincidentally every single one of them have been given a mention during the 1:30 minute long closing credits of the promo video. Neat.
Unfortunately for the young and innocent Anita and Michele they are still stuck with the old geezer from Germany, and unfortunately for the rest of us, he has really outdone himself this time by writing A REALLY CRAPPY SONG. We don’t want to be mean to children and the elderly, so we better cut ourselves short here, or else it can turn ugly.
Our only hope for next year is a new rule implemented by the EBU that would protect small states around Europe from becoming annexed by old men gone completely gaga for the sole purpose of torturing unsuspecting TV-viewers with pure noise pollution. Enough already!
