Yeah, the same thing happened to me after I got the worlds highest score in Pac-Man.  It's annoying.

A guy named Texas Shrugged Book already has his own video about it, "World leaders attend demonic ritual." I dread how Cyprian is probably going to connect this to the Olympics.

When unserious matters are taken seriously then truly serious matters become unserious. Seriously. :)

Whoever choreographed that, though, has no talent and did no justice to the legend.

I think the main issue is not just this one weird performance...but, the slow indoctrination and acceptance of this kind of thing.

I didn't watch the whole video...but, the parts where I stopped seemed inappropriate for polite company, especially if youngsters were in the room watching. 

I don't know the legend it is based on...but, I do know many legends...which I would rather they not see the light of day for their stupidity, paganism, and possible negative influence on the audience.

Seriously...(and I mean that seriously)...we are slowly chipping away at our humanity, our kindess, gentleness, the beauty in which we were created...and this humanity is being replaced by raunchiness, immorality, etc. 

I think they would have had better results if they flaunted that which people already associate with the Swiss...boost their tourism/economy.  I'm thinking along the lines of Heidi, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Elsie the Cow...chocolate, dancing cookoo clocks...I don't know...anything other than what they did.

Wow! Paganism is alive and well. Looks like a scary foretaste of syncretic religion in the future. There were intentional religious overtones: Gloria and alleluia as well as musical quotes from familiar hymns like "Nun danket alle Gott" (Now thank we all our God)
