Medvedev Chic

April 21, 2011

The latest YouTube video to go viral over the past 24 hours features Russian President Dmitry Medvedev busting out some very slinky moves to the pop tune “American Boy” at an alumni reunion.  In my humble opinion, it can’t quite compare to Boris Yeltsin’s exuberant “So You Think You Can Dance?” audition at a campaign stop back in 1996 (no wonder the man’s heart eventually gave out). 

But the latest viral video did remind me of some ultra-kitchy Medvedev clocks I saw (and just couldn’t help taking a photo of) last summer at a souvenir shop in Vladivostok, in which he looks a lot like a lounge singer.  Is some bizarre (brilliant?) strategy to win (seduce?) the women’s vote?  Whatever it is, I look forward to seeing more of it.  As Murph from the Magic Tones said, “Don’t you go changin’.”
