Irish person’s reaction to Brexit – in video

(Wait ’til the very end…..)

IPSOS-Mori carried out a survey of all Irish people, asking the question “What is you’re reaction to the word “Brexit”?

After analysing the results, they commissioned stop-motion artist, Bernard Tyers to represent the results in a stop-motion short movie.

Here is the result.

Tyers is quoted as saying, “I feel this short represents the awful pain in the face Irish citizens, and actually everybody in the feckin’ world, get when they hear all this Brexit shite.”

Never Can Say Hit That Perfect Beat Boy, Don’t leave me this way

Searching for some company
feel the rhythm
dance with me.
Them beat boy blues seem out of place

el pobre de mi en la calle

Que jodido estoy

You can see me at minute 00:07, 2:15 and 03:00 doing my best Alan Lomax impression.

“Amapola (Pretty Little Poppy)” is a 1924 song by Cádiz-born composer José María Lacalle García (later Joseph Lacalle), with Spanish lyrics. After the composer died in 1937, English language lyrics were written by Albert Gamse. (From wikipedia)

José María Lacalle García (1924)

Amapola, lindísima Amapola,
Será siempre mi alma tuya, sola.
Yo te quiero, amada niña mía,
Igual que ama la flor la luz del día.

Amapola, lindísima Amapola,
No seas tan ingrata, ámame.
Amapola, Amapola,
¿Cómo puedes tú vivir tan sola?
