The Vikings & Led Zeppelin: A Friendship to the End

Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” includes the following lyrics:

We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!
On we sweep with threshing oar,
Our only goal will be the western shore.

One of those good old (and arguably problematic) Heritage Minutes produced in Canada-land (equated to Coca Cola commercials for Canadian History) share a similar theme, rendered with all the bells and whistles of full on 1990s style.

Just sayin’. Amusez-vous bien.
