    A Russian blogger has created a video mashup showing how the Pokémon craze would look like in famous Soviet films.

    The blogger, known among Russian Internet users for combining incompatible genres into crazy mashups, created a new video where the little creatures from the Pokémon Go mobile game are blended in the reality of Soviet movies.

    In the video posted on YouTube, film characters, so familiar to the Russian audience, are trying to catch the pocket monsters that have overflowed Moscow streets, riverbanks, construction sites and even the Tsar's palace!

    The blogger previously released other viral mashups; for example, he crossed a Soviet cartoon about the Kolobok, the Russian version of the "Ginger Bread Man," with the American TV series "True Detective," and integrated the character of the children's poems Doctor Aybolit into the universe of the Marvel Comic's superhero Doctor Strange.
