Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
RT: `V for Varoufakis!' German heavy metal video about Greek bailout takes off (February 26, 2015)
"He's the lost son of Zeus with a heart made of stone!"... he "smells of sex"... "his leather jacket is made of skin from German shepherd puppies"... "He doesn't negotiate, he simply kicks ass". These are just some of the lyrics to the awfully catchy metal tune about Yanis Varoufakis that is taking YouTube by storm, with 6,300 views in just four hours.

The video, courtesy of Now Magazine Royale, proudly, and in an almost mock-Germanic tone, lists the Germany's achievements - the positive (like the economy, the large gold reserves etc.) and the negative ones (like starting two world wars and "almost" winning).


"Dear Greek Folks, the time has come: we surrender! Take all our money, you may also take Helene Fischer, but please, keep this financial Hercules off us. We could only just bear with Costa Cordalis [a German singer of Greek origin], so this is clearly way too much!" the description to the video reads.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
