Viðrar vel til loftárása

It was during Nato’s bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. A weather reporter at the National Broadcast Television in Iceland said in a sarcastic protest, while talking about the weather around Beograd:

Það viðrar vel til loftárása. (e. it’s a preferable weather for airstrikes)

This statement was used later as the name for a song by Sigur Rós. The music video is filmed in Hvalfjörður, approx 50 minutes north of Reykjavik. A painful but mesmerizing story about love and hateful homophobia
