Wipe away that patriotic tear rolling down your windshield. Mini has joined with the London Philharmonic Orchestra to give tribute to America, with a song carrying the same name. (It's also known as "My Country, Tis of Thee").

World-renowned orchestra conductor Gareth Newman stands at the podium to lead the horn section of Minis through the song. The orchestra had just finished recording all 205 national anthems that could be played during the Olympics, which kick off later this week. Fortunately, this recording will not be part of them.

So unfurl your flag, scroll down and check out Mini horns as high art.

      Tribute to America ? There is no way the author is that dense. That was "God Save The Queen" for the Brit athletes.

      Holy cow! Does the author not know that this is "God Save the Queen" which is the national anthem in the UK?

      AB - it's God Save the Queen. You know, the British national anthem. Seriously, the narcissism.
