1. That’s hilarious. Does he have the lyrics on his website? It’s obviously in heavily accented English, and the dude has a great eye for camp.

  2. Awesome. Tom Stern’s comments:

    I did this video for a Russian Metal Band called ANJ. It is pretty crazy. When I saw the lyrics it seemed to be an earnest tribute to Mikael Gorbachov (that’s how the Russians spell it), so I was a bit confounded about what the video concept should be, but then I had a brainstorm to take it way over the top and I think it was just the thing. Suffice to say it’s half Russian History allegory as told through an old zombie movie made in the Soviet Union, and half animated Soviet Propaganda posters. It’s in HD, so let it load a bit before you play it and then click the little “four arrows” symbol on the lower right part of the viewer to see it in true HD. BTW- the band has asked that I include their myspace address: myspace.com/anjkill

    Found the lyrics in a comment:

    Over Mother Russia

    There are moans and crys

    The convicted ones are marching

    to the never lands to die.

    The sound of birds’ singing

    is a farewell song,

    But this endless plain

    is where they belong.

    But one escaped

    Out of guardman’s sight

    With his only dream –

    To Let his country rise.

    Freedom was the goal

    He was dreaming of,

    And that person’s name

    Is Michael Gorbachov

    Against the oppressor –

    I’m the new tsar successor!

    Hey, it’s time to spill the masters’ blood,

    Time for us to rise up from the mud.

    Gorbachov , a simple Cossack man,

    By his side we’ll free our native land.
