Las Balkanieras Know What's Cooking: Borek
Kelis' milkshake may have brought all the boys to the yard in 2003, but in Germany, it's the börek that keeps the boys coming back to the yard. In this video for their song "What's Cooking," pan-European trio Las Balkanieras raps about the wonders of the savory meat pastry known as börek or burek or byrek or boereg. (Seriously, it has more spellings than "Hanukkah" or "Qaddafi")
As Nikita's recent lobster fellatio video demonstrated, the marriage of absurd sexual imagery and food is one of the hallmarks of Europop. But a multi-lingual, inappropriately sexy, four-minute music video devoted to a savory meat pastry? What a country.
- h/t Europopped who describes as the video as "M.I.A meets Martha Stewart -- or something."
