Hip-Hop Star Timati a Sensation in Russia
Parody of Russian glamorous hip-hop star Timati is becoming a sensation across Russia – and now globally.
Local comedian and Monty Python fan Ayal Adamov (nickname Urui Ayalaa) and his team Suus Bies Suus decided on some gentle mockery of videos eulogising money and luxurious life beyond the reach of most people.
In particular they poked fun at Timati and the song GQ by visiting the village of Namtsy, 83 km from regional capital Yakutsk, and made this epic video.
‘Six months ago, I heard the song ‘GQ’ for the first time, and thought, why not make a parody,’ he said.
‘Now all the popular videos are about money, a sumptuous life. Everything is so pathetic and I thought – why not to tell about simple things like the khoton (a cowshed in Yakutia, the largest region in the Russian Federation, also known as the Sakha republic) – and manure. Why not?’
‘To sing about it, I thought it would be fun. I did not expect that our video would be watched by people all across Russia. See more here. Link
My cowshed is always fresh!
The dung is everywhere
It attracts money and dirt
It fascinates girls with flavor
Hey, baby, let’s drink kumys
Oh, it’s very tasty
Music from the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Russia’s North-East Siberia and Far East.
A very beautiful song from Yakutia, Russia’s Sibera. Let your day be sunny and happy!
