Argentine Falklands Propaganda

The Argentinian government have released a piece of propaganda in advance of the London 2012 Olympic Games; how satisfying to be able to use that word in its actual sense rather than as a piece of linguistic hyperbole.

The video shows Argentine hockey captain Fernando Zylberberg running and exercising in the Falklands capital Port Stanley ahead of London 2012 and carries the end line “To compete on English soil, we train on Argentine soil.”


The ad is shot in the style of a ‘Rocky’ film and will no doubt get the nationalist juices flowing for both British and Argentine populations.
