I always try to inject a little levity on Fridays here on the blog. This video (which I originally discovered on a post from To The Point) is freakin’ amazing, with literally everything but the kitchen sink.
Finnish rock band The Leningrad Cowboys is joined by the Red Army Choir in this Soviet Era performance of Sweet Home Alabama, with wild adoration from the audience. I especially like the matching yellow-and-black striped suit and crazy sunglasses donned by the band. This video is really out of this world!
Culture clash? You bet! Be sure to check out the balalaika in the background along with all the other instruments. It’s really cool to see how much fun the Red Army Choir seems to be having, and listen to the end for a little bit of the Volga Boatman behind this Skynrd classic.
