The Russo-Iranian Eurasian axis   posted by Razib @ 11/04/2006 02:53:00 PM

From the ever sage Matt Yglesias:
Susan alerts me to this music video for "Vostochnaya Skazka" an international super hit from Russian girl group Blestyashie in which they collaborate with Iranian pop sensation Arash. The resulting song is bad. Very bad. Troublingly bad. It's especially disturbing that Arash appears to live in Sweden, which has traditionally been the Anglosphere's main ally in the quest to make the world safe for non-awful popular music. If they defect to the Eurasian Crap Pop Bloc, all may be lost.

Some of the lyrics are funny:
At one point in the lyrics, Arash says, says "Hey beautiful girl, I really like you. I already have three wives but you can be the fourth." Then the girls are all, "Look dear, I already have 5 husbands. I love them all, but if you want, you can be the sixth."
