    Russia’s police rarely get news headlines for their artistic talents and joyful spirits, but everything is possible during Christmas. Just look at this music video for their cover of the 1984 hit by George Michael.

    The chorus of the National Guard dressed in their best parade uniforms and convened at Red Square’s skating rink to present their rendition of Last Christmas. The deployment of the 120 police troops complete with their veteran leader, Gen. Maj. Victor Eliseev, seemed quite successful and enjoyed by all participants.

    Odd choice of singers there. Are they trying to tell us something?

    They are singing a "Last Christmas" song. In English. Not worse than George Michael.

    When I was very young and when the USSR was still alive and kicking our family would always go to see the Red Army choir at Exhibition stadium in Toronto. The performances of the choir and dancers were spectacular.

    If American National Guard sang something in Russian I would be more than interested. The problem in USA is that not too many people know foreign languages (that's one of the reasons American Media can lie to you so easy about us).

    But there are other examples of Russian Military chorus singing American songs. Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you all!!!!!!
