Eurovision costume idea: PingPong (Israel, 2000)

Israel’s hosting of Eurovision in 2019 was always going to be a contentious issue, and one we’re not keen to go into. One thing we can all agree on, though, is that Israel’s entries over the years have been PHENOMENAL.

One of our favourite Greatest Hits is PingPong’s song ‘Sameyakh’ from 2000. Rumour has it, they entered the Eurovision Song Contest as a joke (gasp! How could anyone ever treat Eurovision as a JOKE) and their song was subsequently disendorsed by the Israeli Broadcasting Authority due to certain political statements made by the group (again, gasp! How could anyone ever use Eurovision for such means).

We have such deep love for this song. It’s only fitting that our costume suggestion for 2019 is… PingPong!
