The Red Army Choir sings "Gangnam Style"


(SNN) - The Red Army Choir has turned heads again with their hard beat Russian-K-pop version of Psy's Gangnam Style, right down to the low drop pants and funky Korean Pony Hop.

The choir, which is known by many names, including “Russian Police Choir” “Russian Army Choir” and the “MVD Ensemble”, opened the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi with their rock'in-staunch-ruskie style of Daft Punk's “Get Lucky.” That performance alone saw the YouTube video go viral, and military pundits scratching their heads.

But now, they have completely jumped off the rails tackling Korean Pop. “I could not believe my ears,” advised one astounded American witness, “Where are the Kalashnikovs, the electrified bed springs? These guys look harmless!”

Korean Pop artist Psy achieved a world-wide hit with Gangnam Style in July of 2012, when his video went viral on YouTube with an astounding 1.9 billion views. It currently holds the top played video of all time on YouTube.

So why not a staunch Russian Army showing up the Korean heart throb?

At one point in the performance, lead singer Starshina Dacha Kopeck sings “Oppan Gangnam style, Dah- Sexy Babushka,. . . . Oppan Gangnam style, . . . .Dah-Sexy Babushka, Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah.”, while hopping along the stage mimicking the Korean Pony Hop.

The Red Army Choir was created in 1939 to serve and sustain the former Soviet state. Its role was to lift the morale of the exhausted troops fighting the Nazi's, its own satellite conflicts, and to bolster the invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980s. The choir's main focus was to glorify the Soviet revolutionary ideal, allowing people to re-live the spirit of the October Revolution.

Today, the Red Army Choir has covered not only the classics, but has performed in public, Adele's “Skyfall” and Tom Jones' “Sex Bomb.

Will the next pop invasion from Russia be Canada's Justin Bieber? Canadians can only hope.
