    XXXXXX.com launches campaign to make “Immigrant Song” official kickoff a

    Andrew Saur of Duluth is leading a campaign to change the Vikings Kickoff song to Led Zeppelin's “Immigrant Song” while raising money for the Vikings Children's Fund. A work of art inspired by this song titled “Voyage of the Norsemen” was created. Part of this campaign includes presentation of the artwork and new anthem to Zygi Wilf and the Minnesota Vikings. The artwork explains that it is time for a change to a song that is more appropriate. The “Immigrant Song” is intense and powerful, and more importantly, it is sung about the Vikings. The current kickoff song is “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns n’ Roses.

    In addition to the artwork, Saur has designed a website to promote the idea of changing the kickoff song to the “Immigrant Song” and raise money for the Vikings Children's Fund. The website is XXXXXXXXX.com and shows the creation of this painting, a short video documentary about this campaign, and a petition calling upon this change.

    Another important part of the website is the ability for Vikings fans to download the artwork, “Voyage of the Norsemen”, that was created. With each download, Saur is asking that a donation be made to the Vikings Children's Fund. The goal of this campaign is to raise $50,000. Saur hopes to make the “Immigrant Song” the official Vikings Kickoff song in time of the Viking's home opener on September 17th.

    Give me half the $50,000 I'll take you back kick you in the nuts and we will call it a day.

    Maybe do something worthwhile.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
