The United Nations Superhero Man

While I’m on the theme of superheros and humanitarian work, I had to share this. It’s a music video from Norwegian brothers, Bard and Jegard Ylvisaker about U.N.’s former emergency relief coordinator, Jan Egeland.

“When hand grenades are flying, there’s just one man you can trust. When there’s war and all is hell, send in Jan Egeland! The United Nations Superhero Man. Mad dictator with a gun, send in Jan Egeland. Oh how I wish, I was Jan Egeland.”

Enjoy!

Hat tip to @columlynch of Turtle Bay (Foreign Policy) who alerted me to this gem and suggested Ban Ki-moon should talk to Psy about bringing some Gangnam Style to the UN Superhero parody music video genre. Word.
