    The author's interest in the subject, which eventually led to the creation of these music videos, reportedly stems from “20th-century Russian history coursework” he previously took.

    It appears that the famous dancing exploits of Soviet servicemen have recently taken on a slightly different hue online, thanks to the efforts of one Twitterian who uses the handle @communistbops.

    According to the Military Times, the netizen's interest in the subject stems from previous "20th century Russian history coursework", when he started listening to the Red Army Choir in order to "fully immerse himself in that world".

    Having watched these videos so much that he ended up remembering "which dance moves would go best with certain lyrics", @communistbops eventually ended up producing peculiar combinations of the old footage of dancing performances with much more modern Western songs, for other social media users to enjoy.
