It involves Eurovision, the Swiss, vampires, Christian protesters and someone called DJ Bobo, and oh Lordi yes it's too good to ignore. The Swiss Federal Democratic Union (FDU) - reported by Swiss media to be a Christian fundamentalists group - are calling for Switzerland's Eurovision Song Contest entry to be banned because of its allegedly satanic content.
The FDU have managed to find 50,000 people to sign a petition and Swissinfo report Thomas Feuz, head of the FDU's petition committee as saying "The song is bad from our point of view...We have nothing against DJ Bobo but the song has a destructive meaning and we want it stopped." Not only that the petition also states that the Eurovision Song Contest, which takes place in May in the Finnish capital Helsinki, has increasingly become a platform for "the occult and Satanists".
Eternal live forever undead gratitude to mediawatchwatch who have transcribed the lyrics of any concerned citizens out there:
Vampires are alive.
They just have to survive.
Weâll never come undone,
And we will be forever young.
I am a vampire; Iâm a slave.
I sleep through the daylight, hence: my grave
In the darkness, in the shadowsâ¦ here I am!
I want you to be forever mine,
To âgatherâ until the end of time
Like a nightmare, never ending.
Let me change your world!
Tonight is the night let a thousand years.
Donât be scared. Donât drown in tears.
Free your spirit after midnight;
Sell your soul. Let it go
From heaven to hell, and enjoy the ride.
Youâre here to surrender with your life.
Precious victims, my desire: live eternally!
There's no justice if this doesn't win this year's Eurovision, but make your own mind up by watching the video of the song below. Incidentally near the start at about 30 seconds it sounds like DJ Bobo is saying "vampires...get a life"...touched by the hand of genius!
