This was a delight! Wish I knew if that was part of the wedding ceremony or the reception, though. Anyone read Russian?

I feel like a bit of a downer, as I really enjoyed the apparently joyous video, but after reading a bit about this production it appears that it was maybe a hugely expensive politically-engineered stunt to support Putin.
Or maybe some wealthy Russians just had some fancy filming at their wedding and I'm parenoid!

Jocelyn,

The Russian text says, "F'lash Mob' [translated literally] on the Vorobyovie Hills"

Or it might say, "Free vodka after the video shoot," I am rusty.

Did you see the little red commie at 3:47?!

I hope the girl in the blue coat is a Permie.

Jocelyn, I looked back at my searches on this, and everything is personal comment, extrapolation and stuff, definitely nothing 'solid' either way.
Whether it's political comment, propaganda for Putin or none of the above, it looks great and I shoulda kept quiet!

Wilson, I love your translating!

Ken, you lost me...I did see little tyke jiving away, but not at that mark.

Leila, no biggie. Didn't bother me either way. The joy in the dancers' faces whether paid for by political shenanigans or not was enough for me!

It's just so much fun to see people enjoying expressing themselves. It reminded me of those wedding dance videos that went viral in 2009, so I had to find those and watch a bunch of 'em after watching this one.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
 
Arch enemy? I mean, I don't like you, but I don't think you qualify as "arch enemy". Here, try this tiny ad:
Paul will be at the Idaho Panhandle Preparedness Expo on October 1-2, 2022
