And now for something completely different...

A helmet-hair ventriloquist-dummy-lookalike does hideous lip-synching on a dreadful '60s set. A Soviet Lawrence Welk? "Joyful noise" in the Workers' Paradise? Cross-cultural "la-la'ing," "ho-ho'ing," and belly laughs of song! Remarkably he manages to stay in character (whatever that character is). (Reminds me of what you would expect to see on TV in the "Joe Versus the Volcano" world). Hard to believe we were terrified of these guys for about 40 years. No surprise we won the Cold War. Words fail. Enjoy. (Hat tip Ethan Clark).
