I'm glad I'm not the only one that makes up words to songs in video games.

Not only are you not the only one, but I thought "That's not the words to those songs!"

I can't remember my/our lyrics but they weren't nearly as wise. More about how I fucking need an l-shape.

jedicus: "It's a double."

The band was mentioned previously (thus the previously link in the FPP), but the video is new and I thought it worth a new post. If not, mods, delete away.

There's an actual russian folk tune the song is based on, and it does indeed have lyrics. I had to sing it in high school choir competition, about 4 years before Tetris came out. It was an odd feeling hearing a song I'd practiced for about a month, coming out of my gameboy.

Wow, it manages to be a commentary on the USSR and Tetris at the same time. The music getting faster as things get more insane is an excellent touch, too!

i liked it much better when it was just a song, it wasn't so painfully goofy.

the acting is more than wooden, but the graphics are interesting.

Needs more Khrushchev and Brezhnev. Also, for the interested seekers of lyrics.

Sweet! Cheers HumanComplex I haven't seen this.

As somebody who just spent the last year teaching this history to wannabe diplomats, I thought this was amazing.
