Watch: The spine-tingling Wales anthem video created by Guinness

‘Turn up the volume and listen to something very special’.

These are the words that accompany a very special viral video created by Six Nations sponsors Guinness.

The world famous Irish brewer certainly knows its rugby and recognises a special moment when it hears it.

That’s why ahead of Welsh rugby fans finally returning to the Principality Stadium for a Six Nations match, Guinness created a brilliant video celebrating what was always going to be an emotional moment, the sound of 70,000 passionate Welsh rugby fans belting out their anthem in their home stadium.

Very special

As you can imagine it was one of those moments to bring a tear to the eye and a shiver to the spine.

A fact acknowledged by the Irishman voicing the video who before the anthem kicks in implores us to: ‘Do yourself a favour, a little treat, turn up the volume and listen to something very special, Wales singing their anthem in their home venue.’

As the parting notes of the anthem drift into the ether, he returns to rightly inform us that: ‘If that doesn’t stand the hairs up on the back of your neck then well I’m afraid there’s no hope for you.’

He’s not wrong.

Watch and enjoy!

if you enjoyed that, please take a listen to the anthem sung at football internationals at the CCS, it is performed by fans without backing music, stunning.

Cymru in full song on the return to the national stadium. Bendigedig!
Plus, that guy in the 3-feathers outfit…

Still rankles that the WRU emblem is the German Feathers. Nothing to do with us.

I look forward to it being sung at the flag raising when we join the UN as a sovereign people.

This is how it should be sung on that special day in thr not too distant future when King William V and His Majestys’ Governor General Lord Dafydd Elis Thomas to attend the crowded Flag Ceremony.

Set outside the Temple of Peace in Cardiff the crowds will see the handover of the Letters Patent to Premier Sir Vaughan Gething and his coalition deputy Rhun ap Iorweth..

The Loyal response after the Anthem will be delivered by the longest serving Opposition Leader in Europe – Lord A RT Davies of Cowbridge and Peterston

The comment at the end says it all, “if that don’t make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, well there ain’t much hope for you” Annibyniaeth!

No other sporting event comes close to this for hwyl and passion.
I know the soccer has tried to emulate but it doesn’t get close.

Are you real?As one contributer has already said The Anthem doesn’t need any background music when sang at The Cardiff City Stadium for The Football Internationals.I wonder how many of these Rugby Match Day Nationalists will soon be waiving The Union Flag come The Platinum Jubilee.
