This isn't a very important blog post, I just wanted to allow viewers to watch the video and read the subtitles simultaneously. Well, Greta "Tumberk" Thunberg who is just 16 has amazed the jury – especially its blonde member – by her recitation.
The jury: Man-left: David Prachař, actor (CZ); Blonde: Dianka Mórová, actress (SK); Brunette: Marta Jandová, rock singer (CZ); Man-right: Jaro Slávik, music producer (SK)
TV Prima Cool, the quirky channel of the Czech commercial TV Prima – Cool airs The Big Bang Theory, Futurama, The Simpsons, TopGear, and tons of other "contemporary Anglo-Saxon" shows and often accompanies them with funny teenage-like slang and video transitions resembling computer games – has created a stellar edited parody out of Greta Thunberg's U.N. speech and some sequences from "Czechia Slovakia's Got Talent".
With 90% of positive votes, the viral video is #1 on YouTube in Czechia as of October 6th and 7th and will approach 1 million views after four days.
More seriously, some shticks are amazing. These two Ukrainian acrobatic kids in pajamas, Katya (8) and Nikita (11), were amazing. They also got a golden buzzer (a button to directly advance to the final round) from Marta Jandová – who was really terrified that the girl was going to kill herself. This Belgian pantomimist with a fake rodent, Elastic, was funny, indeed. Because of these two, a small Russian female dancer etc., some of us renamed the contest to "Everyone But Czechia and Slovakia Has Got Talent". ;-) The top singing is brought by the Armenian girls from Prague, if you care.
