Little needs to be said about this corporate feel-good video from Gazprom, the Russian gas company. Stop what you are doing right now and hit "play." You will not regret it. According to George Parker, the song was written and performed by Vladimir Tumayev, director of the Gazprom subsidy Spetsgazavtotrans. I've posted the English lyrics below the video so you can get the full effect. If, by the end of the day, you're not singing "Let's drink to you, let's drink to us, / Let's drink to all the Russian gas / That it never comes to an end, / Though it's so hard to obtain," then there's something wrong with you. Translated Lyrics:
We're renowned for our deeds The world over And all your troubles will recede If Gazprom people are nearby Don't try, you'll never ever find A surer friend than Gazprom We're giving people warmth and light For office and for home
Refrain: Let's drink to you, let's drink to us, Let's drink to all the Russian gas That it never comes to an end, Though it's so hard to obtain
Let's drink to you, let's drink to us Let's drink to all the Russian gas For those extracting the new sun From down beneath the ground
