Ahead of their performance at Standon Calling Festival next weekend, Casiokids are giving away a free Olympic Games themed track & asking fans to join in their own twitter version of the Olympics, #casiolympics!
“Behind the commercials, the celebrity focus, logistical stress and economic issues there is something quite beautiful about the concept of the Olympic Games” says Casiokids front man Ketil Kinden Endresen.
“If we really are so different, if we have to have those flags and borders, we might as well try to finish all the fighting with some rubber balls, racing around an oval lawn and see who can throw an iron ball attached to a chain the longest.”
So, to mark the opening of the Olympic Games in London Casiokids have decided to give away their Olympic anthem ‘Olympiske leker’ for free together with a bonus version, ‘Olympiske leker v.2’.
Watch the hand drawn video for ‘Olympiske leker’, created by Chad Blevins, here:

To join in the competitive spirit, Casiokids have also just launched the #casiolympics on Twitter! The person that comes up with the best suggestion for a new sport to be included in the Olympics wins a copy of their recent album ‘Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen’ (out now on Moshi Moshi) and a Gullbrød (Golden Bread) chocolate.
