Iceland's World Cup Team Depicted as Vikings in Official Video

An official video promoting Iceland's historic bid to win this year's World Cup has been blasted for its white power imagery and for portraying the players as 'inhuman'.


https://www.facebook.com/footballiceland/videos/1800677006621931/

The video depicts Iceland's squad as Viking warriors in an animated illustration.

Players such as Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson can be seen holding shields with blood on their shirts whilst others are wearing chain-mail armour.

The video ends with the words FyrirIsland ('For Iceland' in English) across the screen.

Music critic Arnar Egert Thoroddssen has slammed the video for its “Aryan imagery.”

He said: "This is so silly, the Icelandic national team became popular because of fair play and their joy; a holistic attitude to sport and support. Here they are (depicted) as inhuman, blood-thirsty barbarians. They are manslayers, paired with some kind of Aryan undertones. Only a quarter away from 'white power' imagery."

Other critics have reportedly criticised the video for being "chauvinistic" and "distasteful."

However many Icelanders cannot see any problem with the video.

One commenter wrote: "The Icelandic National Team consists of great guys that are hard as steel, and it's just fine to label them as Vikings that are eager to fight."

And another commented: "The nation can be proud of this team and national pride is completely different from chauvinism."

Iceland is the smallest nation ever to qualify for the World Cup; and will be looking to repeat their heroics from the 2016 European Championship where they knocked out England en-route to the quarter-finals.

Iceland take on Argentina, Croatia and Nigeria at the group stage of this summer's tournament.

Just another fat cuck afraid at the display of a little masculinity. He already looks like the stereotypical description of a thrall so what to expect?

Yet, I still do wonder where he sees the "Aryan undertones". Except for the fact that they're, well, Nordic?

And with an effeminate experience, quite some cuck we got there. I'm not surprised.

Isn't Iceland where they have the first lesbian head of state? It's an atmosphere in which the Europhiles will soon demand obedience before Brussels. Rapefugees will turn the Norse paradise into a "shithole". The purity of the Norse-Gaels in isolation is in for a rude awakening.

Honestly, I think the times had passed for such a "Zeichentrickfilm" drawn trick movie clip ;
in such a Nordic-Viking style.
Until the 1980s it would have fit better.
Not sure, if "shields covered by blood" would have been shown at that time.

"Critics" would have been uttered back then, but mainly by non-Icelanders.

There are very capable artists sympathizing with NS-style environments.
Who ever has seen the "cultural arts" of Left-winged Occupied Houses,
internet websites and average graffiti by unknown youth ,
has to admit, the Nazis have currently
the better artists on their side;
and this is also a Criticism of the Critics !

What is to criticize, I think, is that it were mainly Continental European Vikings
known as bloodthirsty warriors , but I never have read about Icelandic Vikings
raiding the coasts of Normandy, Frisia or the British Islands.
The artists highly likely were not of Icelandic origin,
and portrayed a false impression of Icelandic people,
we all were grown by the many Hollywood movies once,
where the owners might be of Jewish origin, but the plot writers
and producers "Regisseure" were not.

The "problem" clearly is not enough p.o.c. in the squad of Iceland, according to this hysterical article. Funny too how it describes this promocampaign as "Aryan". :D I suppose the author won't like it when an all-Icelandic team will stunt at the world cup in Russia. He looks like a total nu-man, and they don't tolerate masculine behaviour in Germanic men.

The art is on point though.

I'm sorry but soccer is so boring compared to football, basketball, and hockey. I guess that is why it is not popular here in the States and probably never will be. Nevertheless I'll watch some World Cup matches even though the US is not in it. I'll defintely watch the final on July 15. What they should do is shorten the soccer field both in length and width. That would make the game faster and quicker.

I happen to like playing footie, but don't care to be a spectator of any sporting event. Sitting on the sidelines and out of the game is for losers.

Indeed. That's what I believe is behind pacifism and teaching boys not to stand their man or fight back, turning into wimps and cowards that rely on the state for everything.

You are correct. Very few real 'European' football teams in the World Cup and Iceland have done amazingly well for such a tiny country.
