Hot and Cold... Polka Style!!!!
(In case the imbed doesn't work... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1upZz3a-7iM)
This is one of the funniest little clips of all time... Pretty much, a Ukrainian polka band plays Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold", in English, complete with accordian, on some Ukrainian TV show. Katy Perry becomes "Катерина Перровна". The band we see is a band known as "Los Colorados", from the Spanish meaning "Colorado Potato Beetles." While they perform their own songs, they are most famous for their covers of English pop songs, specifically this one. This clip was first brought to the attention of Americans via "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", and then became a YouTube sensation. What is perhaps the most interesting, the lead singer knows no English...
The Ukraine has many ties with Russia, including a common religion, similar culture and language, and a linked history.
