Three cheers for Dustin the Turkey – a personal hero of mine.

A turkey who says it as he sees it – and, more often than not, gets away with it – Dustin has been a puppet celebrity on Irish children’s TV for years. Now he gets the opportunity to showcase his wares at the highest level (did I just say that?) when he represents Ireland at this years Eurovision Song Contest – although song and Eurovision have been mutually exclusive for a number of years now.

After Lordi’s gleeful molesting of the format two years ago with their Heavy Metal-lite entry, Dustin attempts to take the joke one step further with his entry Irlande Douze Points. Is the song any good? Frankly no – but its heart is in the right place (I think) and does exactly what it says on the tin, happily sending up all the conventions of Eurovision: Terry Wogan, Riverdance etc in an amazingly accurate parody.

If there’s any justice it will win at a canter. Go Dustin, we need you now more than ever!

And, if your stomach can take it, here’s the song in all its horrendous glory. You have been warned.

  1. Nooooooo!

    Word has it that Ireland really don’t want to win the Eurovision. If we did it would mean having to re-invent Riverdance and we all know what happened on the back of that, last time! Heaven forfend that there be another Celtic Tiger let loose on the world 😉
