I have been reliably informed that this is the new Rickroll in the UK, and possibly all of Europe.

Crikey.

    This answers a question I have long pondered: “What if David Lynch had been in charge of directing a Soviet version of The Lawrence Welk Show?”

    I’m only mildly horrified by it until he starts sing-giggling. At which point I become convinced that he’s going to murder me in my sleep. Also: that is quite a wig.

    V, do you really think that’s a wig? Next you’ll be telling me he was lip-syncing.

    I’m quite convinced of his murderous intentions from the moment he appears in profile, ambling onto the stage with that rictus grin fixed on his face. Other highlights:

    * The little bouncy, dance-strolling thing he’s constantly doing, and the stuff he does with his arms, especially the little gestures at 1:02.

    * The yodeling at 1:27. I need say no more.

    And seriously, how could we have feared the technological prowess of the USSR when they couldn’t even arrange their cameras to track their performers’ on-screen pointing? Check out the bizarre cutaways during the sing-giggling at 1:55.

    Perhaps I have been overthinking all of this.

    You have to admire his enthusiasm for bringing the crazy. Watching this makes me feel somehow violated, as if I’m tied up in his basement, watching him point and wave to an imaginary audience in some demented dream of being famous.
