Today was the deadline for artists to submit their Eurovision songs to Public Broadcasting Services. People Expect More, submitted on behalf of the Facebook page Kantali Kazzata, was sent directly to PBS CEO John Bundy in a hilarious email that was also sent to Lovin Malta.
The email reads: “Dear John Bundy, first off I wish to congratulate you on the post of CEO for PBS. You truly deserve the post. I am a big fan of your legendary song ‘Pajjiz Tal-Mickey Mouse’ and recently I wrote a similar song which I think you’ll love and appreciate. It’s a song about our beautiful country and the people running it. I would like to submit it for the 2017 Eurovision.”
“It’s a song about our beautiful country and the people running it. I would like to submit it for the 2017 Eurovision.”
Cedric Vella, who runs the page Kantali Kazzata, ended the email with an apology for not being able to pay the €150 submission price because he’s spent all the money on posters of Ira Losco. He added: “Taħseb nistgħu nirranġaw xi ħaġa?” (Could we work something out?)
PBS has not yet reacted to the song but we’ll keep you posted if they do. Until then, fingers crossed that we’ll actually have a song worth voting for at this year’s Eurovision!
