Russian president Dmitry Medvedev Dancing to American Boy (Video)

Apart from the fact that the footage of Russian president Dmitry Medvedev dancing to “American Boy” has attracted 1.25million hits in just 24 hours, another interesting detail is that “American Boy” was one of Kombinaciya’s major hit songs, released in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolving and most Russians were experiencing deteriorating living conditions.

The song, about an unhappy Russian girl wishing that an American Boy would take her away with him and leave Russia behind, captured public sentiment at that pivotal time in Russian history.
