ICELAND – Iceland’s Eurovision 2020 contestant Daði Freyr has covered ‘Jaja Ding Dong’, which appeared in Netflix’s Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga.
The movie, which was released in June, stars Rachel McAdams and Will Ferrell as two Icelandic Eurovision hopefuls stuck playing in a local bar and beleaguered with requests to play the novelty song.
Since the release of the film, Freyr has also been inundated with requests to cover the fictional song. After initially saying he wouldn’t do his own version of the track, the musician has now relented.
“Don’t say I never gave you anything!” he wrote on Twitter. “Now onto the next!”. The accompanying video for his cover begins with tens of requests to play ‘Jaja Ding Dong’ from his YouTube comments covering the screen before he starts the song.
