A video recently blew up screens all across the internet (about 4 mln views on YouTube). About two hundred young dancers in Moscow, who at first seem to be ordinary bystanders, perform a dance accompanied by a contemporary arrangement of the famous 1929 song "Puttin' on the Ritz" by Irving Berlin.
The video even features dancing by groups of custodians and soldiers. A high energy production in the style and spirit of American musicals, it leaves no head left unturned. However, nothing is known about the creators of the video. Who they may be and what they may do are questions rapidly rising in the rankings of search engines.

It is important to note that the hype surrounding this video originated in no small part due to the similarity of the first word in the song with the name of Vladimir Putin, who at that time was a candidate for the Russian Presidency. The dancers play up the likeness, singing along to the chorus: "Putin molodets!». When translated, the phrase means "Putin well done!" or «Putin what a good fellow!». 

 

Puttin' on the Ritz   
Have you seen the well-to-do
Up and down Park Avenue?
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air.

High hats and arrow collars,
White spats and lots of dollars,
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time.

If you're blue and you don't where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits?
Puttin' on the Ritz.
Different types who wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cut-away coats,
Perfect fits...
Puttin' on the Ritz.

Strollin' up the avenue so happy
All dressed up just like an English chappy
Very snappy.

Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
And um-ber-ellas in their mitts...
Puttin' on the Ritz.

If you're blue and you don't where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits?
Puttin' on the ritz.
Different types who wear a day coat
Pants with stripes and cut-a-way coats,
Perfect fits...
Puttin' on the Ritz.

Dressed up like a million dollar trouper
Trying hard to be like Gary Cooper
Super-Duper.

Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
And um-ber-ellas in their mitts...
Puttin' on the Ritz.
Puttin' on the Ritz.
Puttin' on the Ritz.
Puttin' on the Ritz.
