Iceland – Our Choice

So Ari Olafsson is your chance for the first pee break of the night.

Ari Olafsson is a Nice Boy. He’s only 19 years old, and has spent most of his youth starring in Icelandic musical theater productions, which explains why he sounds like he’s belting out this song to the back row at the end of the first act.

The song itself is okay, about how we all have a choice to act a certain way in life, which is certainly what I said when I was a 19-year-old who hadn’t yet been toughened by any hard ethical decisions, like “Smile at your harasser and pay your bills or quit your job in a principled manner?” There often is a choice to make out there, and it’s between crap option A and crap option B, and no amount of key changes can make those choices any better.

But we’ll let Ari Olafsson off because he is a Nice Boy and has looked like he’s having a blast in the Eurovision pre-party season and will make grandmothers across Europe feel reassured about millennials. Just don’t feel obligated to actually listen to his song.

TWITTER JOKES YOU SHOULDN’T BOTHER MAKING BECAUSE THEY’VE ALREADY BEEN DONE BETTER BY THE EUROFANDOM: Anything about his suit and him looking like a game show host.

SHOULD YOU TAKE A PEE BREAK DURING HIS PERFORMANCE: Yes
