ICELANDs official video for the upcoming world cup features an animated version of the team inspired by the countrys viking past.

Music critic Arnar Egert Thoroddssen slammed the video saying the imagery was aryan and that the football players looked inhuman and barbaric, reminding of white power. Others claimed it was chauvinistic and har similarities to nazi propaganda.

Thoroddssen also said that the team were appreciated because of their joy and that makes me wonder how he can fail to see the humour in the video. That they’re joking with their heritage and peoples knowledge of Iceland. And rather some masculine barbarians than wimpy soy-boys.
