Is it true that Lithuanians like their soup pink, put herrings into bedsheets and are the inventors of basketball? A witty presentational video instructs on some peculiarities of the Baltic nation.

The video has comedian Justinas Jankevičius host a mock game show where viewers are invited to guess if several myths about Lithuania are true or false.

The topics covered include Lithuanian cuisine, sporting achievements and some basic geography (spoiler: Riga, apparently, is not the capital city of Lithuania).

The video, and a companion smartphone app, was commissioned by the Airports of Lithuania to be screened at an industry event in Iceland. It was produced by the agency Adell Taivas Ogilvy and directed by Marius Kunigėnas.
