this has nothing to do with duluth. it's just...it is.



The tiny Eastern European republic of Molvania was disqualified from the Eurovision Song Contest this year.

Zladko “Zlad” Vladcik was to perform his very popular techno-ballad, “Elektronik – Supersonik” - described as “a melodic fusion combining hot disco rhythms with cold war rhetoric”.

However, the 23-year-old singer was arrested at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport and immediately deported. While Eurovision does not normally test for recreational drugs, unfortunately for Vladcik, Turkish Customs do.

On his return, “Zlad” apologised to everyone in Molvania for letting them down, especially his family, his friends and his dealer.

Zladko “Zlad” Vladcik rose to prominence in 2002 when he won Molvanian Idol in controversial circumstances - the other finalist, Ob Kuklop, pulled out due to a serious throat condition after one of the judges tried to strangle him.

“Zlad” immediately released the megahit, “Juust Az I Amm” – hailed by Rolling Stone as the most incorrectly spelt song of all time.

After barely 2 days on the Molvanian “Rhythm & Polka” charts, the track went platinum – remarkable considering it was only available on cassingle.
Then, in an exciting move, “Zlad” formed supergroup Wow! But while on their very first tour, he decided to go solo again, citing the fact that the rest of the band was “moving in a different direction” (Romania).



Zladko ("ZLAD!") Vladcik’s hopes of representing his country on the world stage have once again been dashed.

The Molvanian heart-throb was informed at the last moment by contest officials that his entry had been withdrawn.

"Satanism has no place at Eurovision", was the terse one-line statement issued by the
Kiev press office.

Clearly-devastated, "ZLAD!" insists his song "I Am The Anti-Pope" is not an attack on Christianity - rather, a light-hearted ballad recounting the short reign of little-known Beelzebub the First – the only Vicar of Christ to have been crucified at the stake.

"In Molvania, this is one of our most loved children’s stories", claimed Zlad!, speaking backwards through a hooded translator.

However, in good news for both him and his hundreds of fans, the singer-songwriter’s record company, "SZPINN", yesterday announced that despite the setback, "I Am The Anti-Pope" will be released in the near future.

Last year, Zlad! had a surprise hit on his hands with the futuristic techno track, "Elektronik – Supersonik", which was also controversially disqualified from Eurovision.

Some reports indicate that "I Am The Anti-Pope" will be accompanied by a blood-chilling video-clip, although the shooting - which was to have commenced last Saturday in the Molvanian capital of Lutenblag - had to be postponed due to the local production crew being double-booked for a wedding.
