In Mother Russia, Blocks Arrange You

In Mother Russia, Blocks Arrange You

Comrad, the following video is the complete history of the Soviet Union... Arranged to the melody of Tetris.

Because when you think of Russia, if you're not an alcoholic, you're thinking of Tetris. And let's face reality - Tetris is the complete history of the Soviet Union.

Yeah, I realize that there's all of four lines in the song regarding the build-up to and commission of the Great Patriotic War. But then again, the death of 40 million hard-working, independent farmers known as kulaks isn't really a suitable topic for a comedy song.

The whole Russians in line for bread because of Gorbachev is actually very accurate. I especially liked how the song ends on a more positive note. If you don't think Putin is working to revive the USSR, you're crazy. Yes, the man has a very over the top character - But just remember all the mocking of his shirtlessness when the USSR and China control the world in twenty years.

In fact, the only thing that would have made that music video any more informative is if they put in this Simpsons clip somewhere in there.

If you want to learn more about Russia.. well, there's nothing left to learn. Other than Vodka is serious business there and it's fucking cold. But if you want to know more about Tetris, then just ask, I'm ranked 16th in all SoCal, Mother fuckers!

Just remember.....
