Aren't you supposed to be writing a sermon or something? The world has enough problems!

As a matter of fact, I was.

I heard my sons cracking up at this, and after seeing it myself, it has indeed been hard to get back in the groove.

I think he's lip-synching!

Where can I buy the album?

It's from Soviet era Russia - just in case you couldn't tell! :0).
Apparently the actual words to the song were deemed unacceptable by the Soviet censor, so in protest the singer gave the performance as shown. It subsequently became a smash hit.
It was a cult video here 'down-under' a year or two ago, which is how I know this useless information.

Kim - This is my ringtone.

Funny story - We had some friends over from the Ukraine. The wife had grown up in Russia. Suddenly I received a call from a friend which set off Mr. Trolololo man's melodious voice. Our guest was doing fist pumps in the air with delight over hearing the old tune from her childhood. Apparently he was for real.

The eyes, the hair, the grin, and the lip-synching is a ringer for the Lawrence Welk show.

So , uh, would this be considered outside of the Regulative Principle to use this in a worship service?

Amazing! Not only can you not see the ventriloquist's lips move, you can't even see the ventriloquist!

We love to hate Hollywood, but at least the artistic and production values that come out of that town are usually better than artistic horrors like this. This is even too corny for the former Lawerence Welk Show on its worst day.

I'm not convinced that isn't a marionette. Did anyone else get flashes of Mr. Bean while he was swaying to the music??

I actually enjoy this - when it first came out I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard, one comment I read early on was something to the effect that its no wonder we won the cold war if this is what passes for culture in Russia. But after reading a bit about the man who sings it, his history and seeing his follow up video on Youtube, I was warmed to him, I think he has a certain charm about him. I'm not calling this high culture mind you, but this is a style of music that had it's place in Cold War Russian society. The song is about a cowboy going home and it is in a style known as "vocalize" or "vocalise" or something like that. This was actually a legit genre of music in Russia for a time. Here's more info on the singer, his career and the song itself.

In Soviet Russia, song sings you.

I thought he was singing the praise of the quality Soviet ornamental iron

Pastor Wayne is right--it's easy to make fun of this guy, but there is a history to this in what used to be Soviet society. This helped to keep some in the Soviet era alive in the midst of what they went through in its totalitarian state. It looks tacky now--as did the crappy cars such as the Yugos-but it's a part of an era we need to remember.

What a goof ball!

He sort of looks and sounds like Darren Sutton!

Soviet era song? That would explain it then, if you weren't singing the praises of the USSR, then the only safe thing was to sing things like that. Maybe this was the only way he could make fun of the USSR and live. I don't buy that story about the mustang and a stocking being knitted for him....
