Slovenia: Joker Out filmed the first postcard for Eurovision 2023!
The first postcard of Eurovision 2023 has officially been flimed and it’s not other than Slovenia’s.
RTVSLO, the public broadcaster of Slovenia, has confirmed that the first postcard of this year’s Eurovision was filmed by Joker Out, the band that is going to represent them in Liverpool in May.
Back in October, BBC made an offer to find an independent production company, that would come up with the concept and film the 37 postcards of the coming contest. The postcards will be 40 seconds long.
The greatest thing we learned by Slovenia’s filming, was that the production company, decided that each representative will make all filmings for their postcards in their respective countries, which means that this year, the postcards will not be used to promote the host country.
Joker Out filmed their postcard in the roof of Radio Slovenija’s building. As you can see, they asked for a pinball machine to be in the postcard and they were especially happy when BBC approved of it. Jure Maček, the band’s drummer, revealed the connection between the pinball machine and their song:
“We really like the pinball machine, because we started playing it already in Hamburg while recording the song.”
Joker Out will represent Slovenia in Eurovision 2023 with their song “Carpe Diem” and they are allocated in the Second half of the Second Semi-Final:
