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.
