Just to really piss off some self-important cultural anthropologists out there who'd love nothing more than to see the U.S. become subsumed to some perceived "better" culture, I thought I'd promote this incredible bit of homogenization for your Sunday morning.
Via The Corner, the Red Army Chorus accompanies the Leningrad Cowboys in what can only be described as the most surreal rendition of Sweet Home Alabama I've ever seen:
When they finally do Freebird, we can all decry John Lennon's pablum for the passive pussification it promotes.
It's the pogrom-like sounds and chording of the men's voices at the end of Alabama that really brings it home, so to speak. So yeah, you gotta sit there, slack-jawed through the whole thing.
Don't miss their take on Tom Jones' "Delilah," either.
