Squack asyoulike : *When a child asks a question that is way too advanced* Here’s some chocolate.

Maks Kolman : Slovenian here. If you would keep the original center alignment of our anthem you would also notice it has the shape of a wine glass. 🍷

BYOwn : If I ruled a country I would make the national anthem a really fast rap song so I could watch old people attempt to rap fast.

Low Poly Pineapple : If you don't stand for the special song, the magic sky-cloth won't freedom.

Chickens for the Chicken god : The only good anthem is the soviet one *ACTIVATE SOVIET EAR RAPE*

axlrose76 : When you are watching this video and you think about your own national anthem... and when you reach the end of the video it is actually featured in it... priceless.

Pootin : Idk why official translation of Slovene anthem mentions God. There's no mention of it in original Slovene lyrics. The translation should be "Long live all the nations who long and work for that bright day...".

AK Brahma : Lots of love to Slovenia for such a sweet national anthem.

Doctor Dex : I'm Dutch yet I never knew about that easter egg in our anthem. It's still boring though.

Aelfric V : Time to move to Slovenia !!

Luucvinky : Yay we Dutchies achieved something

Bart Pander : Although the Dutch Anthem is a very old song, it only became the national Anthem in 1932. The 'Wilhelmus' as the current Anthem is called, was considered too politicised and a song specific for the Organgist party when they introduced the national Anthem. The national anthem they choose as the first Anthem overtime became even more politicised and thus in 1932 they changed it to the 'Wilhelmus' which by then was considered a more neutral song with a history going back to the revolt that lead to the founding of the country and thus fitting as the national Anthem.

B1squitz : Well in a part that nobody sings of the Italian anthem it's said something "The eagle of Austria has lost its feathers and we're drinking its blood with the Cossack"

Just a Raptor Riding American With a Chainsaw : We need more of that last anthem in our societies as a whole.

First Cynic : Anthems do sometimes get an additional verse added. My favorite is the 6th verse of the UK anthem... Lord grant that Marshal Wade May by thy mighty aid Victory bring. May he sedition hush, And like a torrent rush, Rebellious Scots to crush. God save the King!
