Phillips Phunny: The National Anthem Butchered (“The Star Mangled Banner”)

Watch as a Canadian girl sings “The Star-Spangled Banner” and forgets HALF THE WORDS!

On Saturday, Canada’s national junior hockey tournament in Saskatoon featured one of the worst National Anthem attempts EVER. Some girl named Alexis Normand was tasked with singing the Canadian AND American anthems.

And she obviously wasn’t too familiar with the American one, because she forgot half the lyrics, started and stopped a couple times, sang one part TWICE, and generally embarrassed herself for a minute and a half.

Luckily, the crowd started singing along, and she eventually made it through. After the game, she tweeted, quote, “I’m embarrassed and deeply sorry. I wish I’d had more time to learn the American anthem. Thanks so much for the crowd’s help!”
