French Canadian folk singer Alexis Normand makes a cringeworthy bags of the American National Anthem before the 2013 Memorial Cup game between the Portland Winterhawks and the Halifax Mooseheads.

Thinking she’d memorised the Star Spangled Banner correctly, she went wrong after the third line, filling in with gibberish to bridge to the finale.

Afterwards, mortified, she took to Twitter to apologise, the pet.


Any excuse.

“Here’s to all who went down under,
Who tore their Mammy’s hearts asunder,
Who chose the thongs over shteel-teo wellys,
And tried to tan their pashty bellys.
However this song was wrote because,
There’s friends of ours below in Oz,
Who daily take a sun drenched stroll,
And shed a distant tear for home.”

Bondi Junction, the new anthem of Irish emigrants in Australia.
