The Thailand national team may not be in the World Cup, but thanks to the military government that was installed after the recent coup, Thai citizens in that nation will be able to watch the tournament for free.
Since the coup, the junta has increased surveillance, censored TV and radio stations, cracked down on protests and detained critics.
Despite all this, they also have a message for the Thai people – be happy! And free broadcasts of all 64 World Cup games is just part of this attempt to "return happiness to the people." They're also giving away movie tickets, throwing free concerts in Bangkok with singing soldiers and scantily clad women, and even brought horses with bales of hay downtown for people to pet.
The Army Chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha wants to return happiness to Thailand so much he wrote a ballad about it.
It's set to music by the Royal Thai Army Band. With lyrics like "We offer to guard and protect you with our hearts" and "To bring back love, how long will it take? Please, will you wait?" it isn't quite as catchy as that other happy song.
