What a cool idea! I hope they continue to play YMCA over the loudspeakers!!!
This video is called Village People – YMCA OFFICIAL Music Video 1978.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Russians themselves play YMCA
Saturday, February 8, 2014 15:46
It was the idea of [Dutch gay comedian] Paul de Leeuw: let the party band “Small beer” [Kleintje Pils] play ‘gay song’ YMCA during the speed skating in Sochi as a protest against the anti-LGBTQ law in Russia. It is not known whether the Russians knew about that call and whether they agreed with such a playful protest, but the fact is that the song sounded from the loudspeakers this afternoon in Sochi.
During a break in the while machines cleaned the ice of the Adler Arena, people could hear The Village People which is seen worldwide as a ‘gay’ song.
Kleintje Pils will be going to Sochi next week.
