The Internet has been flooded with messages from flabbergasted users who stumbled across a music video from a 1987 song called “At the Dawn” by the Soviet band “Alliance”.
Apparently two members of the quartet irradiating retro vibes strikingly resemble Russian President Vladimir Putin – the lead singer – and his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro – the keyboard player, rocking the dopest glasses ever!
Social media users are sure: the two had a secret jam session back in the 1980s before getting political:
NO WAY! Putin and Maduro playing in a 80's band?????? https://t.co/IyejsZZF7a— Henry Jacques Meow (@MeowTV2) 31 January 2019
