Help You Fly-Tai


Learn to Fly Tai

I will help you learn how to fly, how to flyyyyyyyyyyyy-yyyyyyy. And repeat. Times a million. Several years on and we’re still singing this song! Despite the disappointment of Ivan not actually performing naked with real wolves, Belarus’ 2016 entry was a firm Mission Eurovision favourite and we had a full on strop when it didn’t get through to the live finals. IKR?

Although not carrying as much prestige as being in the finals, we hope Ivan and the team will be somewhat consoled with our interpretation of a mai-tai in their honour. We think it’s delicious.
