Sweet Home Alabama – As You’ve NEVER Seen it

ROCKING RUSSKIES
Written by To The Point News

Prepare yourself for this one – maybe with a Stoli martini or two.

Back in the days of the Soviet Union, the Soviet Red Army had an official choir composed of male soldiers and musicians. It still exists. The Red Army Choir performs throughout Russia to this day.

Now consider the Finnish rock band called The Leningrad Cowboys. A little while ago, they held a concert in Russia, in which – to the screaming applause of Russkie teen-agers – they got the Red Army Choir to join them on stage for a performance of “Sweet Home Alabama.” In English. You couldn’t make this up.

We’re talking seriously off the wall here. Better have that Stoli ready when you watch it:

(Prepare to die, laughing!) DA! Da! Da!

  2. Aafke, I am glad there are a few nut cases out there (like me) who think this is hysterical.
