Carnaval song parody is sleeper hit of 2018


Tired of over-the-top, in your face dirty carnaval songs? Bored with racist slurs and sexist bullshit? Can’t look at another badly dressed moron from ‘above the rivers’ singing about beer and getting drunk?

Then this parody of carnaval song taken at face value is the Dutch carnaval song for you this year: Max Verstand & De Speld with ‘Maak weloverwogen keuzes’ (roughly ‘Make informed choices’). De Speld is a Dutch news satire site and this was an excellent idea even if it is from Amsterdam, the city that still manages to stave off carnaval fever.

Maak weloverwogen keuzes has everything you need: a nice man with a colourful outfit, a funny artist name (Max Verstand = maximum common sense), sounds a tad old fashion with the accordion rather than banging techno, and has a pretty woman and some partying.

    I went to carnival for the first time last year. It was pathetic – just lots of people in their 40s and 50s trying to be 18 again. Trashy and pointless – just an excuse to get drunk and behave like children. I can see why Eindhoven airport was so busy yesterday…

    Nothing wrong with a good excuse to get drunk and behave like kids…
    Wish we had carnaval here in Amsterdam!
