Kiesza's Hideaway's Russian Cousin
August 17, 2014 12:53 AM   Subscribe

Kiesza's Hideaway video is a fantastic single-shot tribute to 1990s dance. (She even broke a rib shooting the video.) But check out what happens when Russian performance duo Bonia and Kuzmich (Mikhail Kuzmin and Julia Starikova) (Боня и Кузьмич) created a tribute video.

On a similar level of 90s tributeness and awesome, client liason - that's desire.

this is good stuff though.

The original video gets the 90s dancing almost perfect, but it's strange how it tries to sound like 90s dance music, but somehow doesn't at all. I don't know what's off, but there's something fundamentally wrong about the sound.

That Russian video, though, that's something else.

Here's the official Vevo link to the Kiesza video. The one I posted is the production company's link on YouTube.

The Russian tribute video is amazing, I lost it when the man playing the accordion was their backup dancer!

Yeah, I can't decide if my favorite part of Bonia and Kuzmich was how hard the accordion player fought to stay stoic before cracking up, or everything about Mikhail's dancing!

*Sees N12 and Kent sign at start of video. Thinks "Blimey, Williamsburg is still cool, then?" Is vaguely pleased even though not one's sort of music at all.*

Bonia and Kuzmich are absolutely delightful; I couldn't stop smiling. Thanks for the post!

Yes, of all the Russian single-shot 90's dance-video tributes parodying Russian village life, that's definitely... the most recent.

Reminds me of Saturday night in Irkutsk. Or Maghera. Either.
