Blowing up slabs of meat
I don't know what to think. Does this make Eurovision better, by cutting a slash into its saccharine blancmange? Does it take away the one redeeming feature of Eurovision, its unapologetic bouncy campness? Or does Lordi fit right in, another I-can't-believe-it's-not-plastic fabrication?
I expect that it will do little to change the image of Eurovision, but it does help to reposition Finland. For some reason, this quote made me smile: "Lordi represents a rebellion by Finns who are saying, 'Hey we are not all the Nokia-wielding people the government would like you to think we are.' "
