International Sports brand, Puma, has brought English and french football fans together to record a song. Not an anthem for their football teams' upcoming trip to the World Cup in South Africa, it's a tribute to Josh's Eurovision Song Contest entry, That sounds good to me and France's Allez ola ole.
As a promotional online event, Puma has brought together football fans from France, the United Kingdom, Germany and Italy (who of course has not participated in the Eurovision Song Contest since 1997). They have each recorded one of their Eurovision Song Contest entries for an online vote on their youtube channel:
- France – Allez ola ole (2010)
- Germany – Ein bisschen frieden (1982, winner)
- United Kingdom – That sounds good to me (2010)
- Italy – Fiumi di parole (1997)
Watch the French and British versions here:
United Kingdom – That sounds good to me
