Footage of Russian president Dmitry Medvedev dancing to American Boy has become a Youtube hit and proved, if he ever had any doubt, that Medvedev should stick to the day job.
Medvedev was filmed pulling some awkward moves to the 90s hit American Boy.
The clip of the Russian president dancing has been watched with much hilarity on Youtube and spawned comments like the following:
“The song “American Boy” was one of Kombinaciya’s major hit songs, released in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolving and most Russians were experiencing deteriorating living conditions. The song, about an unhappy Russian girl wishing that an American Boy would take her away with him and leave Russia behind, captured public sentiment at that pivotal time in Russian history. The song was mentioned in mainstream American newspapers…. and medvedev actually dances to this song?” questions bunkerbustin.
Others, however, appear quite taken with the Russian president’s dancing.
“omg he’s so cute. i wanna pinch this little pretty boy,” says andymckandless.
