The international language of taking the piss

Idly through twitter this morning, I saw Ben tweeting this… why would you not click..?

It’s a link to a video on youtube by Russian boy band Steklovata.  I say ‘video’ and ‘boy band’, but I’m using the terms in the loosest possible sense…


 

It’s called Noviy Noviy God, and it’s Not Very Not Very Good.

Lesson one; Anyone can be a pop star nowadays.

The more interesting thing for me was the links that started appearing to other videos beside it…

…somewhat inevitably, people have started making parodies.

First up was the Swedish version…


 

…then there’s the Polish version…


 

…the Lithuanian version…


 

…Bosnian version…

…just when you think it’s getting a bit like Eurovision, we travel halfway around the world for the ‘Brazilian Trash Version’…


 

…and of course the inevitable ’50 Cent vs Steklovata’ mash-up…

Lesson two:  Anyone can be a pop star nowadays, but you’d better be prepared for the great global pisstake if you put up something like Noviy Noviy God…
