Новый Год the meme

Новый Год (Novy God) means New Year in Russian. It was also the name of a song that was a huge hit for Russian boy band Стекловата (Steklovata) a few years ago.

Despite the catchy tune, the cheap effect of the video clip, has spawned a meme devoted to parodying the clip. Here are a selection

Attempted subtitling based on English phonetic interpretation (there is also a Swedish version)

Swedish miming 'tribute'

Brazilian trash version

Polish mime (one of the earliest ones)

More recently, from Allan Hyde via Twitter (actor in True Blood) of Gourmetfilm's tribute

There are many more on YouTube. World News website has aggregated a few.

Happy New Year!
