Catalogue Note

William's wore the battery-powered shirt when he performed the song "Blame Canada" at the 1999 Academy Awards.  "Blame Canada" was nominated for best song, and its lyrics famously included digs at Margaret Trudeau, Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Anne Murray, and a host of other well-know Canadians. The finale of the spirited number centered on Williams taking off his blazer to reveal the shirt, and its illuminated anti-Canada emblem, as he danced in a chorus line of Mounties.
