Aretha Franklin performs epic US national anthem for Thanksgiving

Now the USA had many things to give thanks for yesterday, not least the existence of Aretha Franklin.

The soul super-woman was on hand to belt out a lengthy gospel-style rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner ahead of the Detroit Lions v Minnsota Vikings NFL game.

Her version clocked in around four and half minutes, which was apparently too much for some football fans.

We think it's second only to Lt. Frank Drebin's effort in The Naked Gun film...and that some of these people need to show Aretha a little more R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
