Thursday funny: Leningrad Cowboy

With tomorrow being Good Friday and normal blogging to resume next Tuesday, I thought I'd bring this semi-regular Friday feature forward by a day. 

World Politics Review called this clip 'globalisation's unintended consequences': a Finnish rock group named after a Soviet city and backed by the Russian Red Army choir belting out 'Sweet Home Alabama'. And just to complicate the absurdity a little more, I wonder if the Leningrad Cowboys were aware of the racial politics behind the song? Enjoy your Easter.
