Stepping to the beat of the 1990s pop hit “American Boy,” President Dmitry Medvedev’s stiff dance moves became an immediate viral hit on YouTube on Wednesday.
Sporting a form-fitting silver jacket and open collar, Medvedev somewhat awkwardly wiggles his hips and kicks up his heels with other party guests in the half-minute clip posted late Tuesday.
The performance attracted mixed reactions from Russians, with nearly 300 comments only hours after it was posted.
“It looks like Medvedev’s swallowed a stick,” one viewer commented.
Medvedev wrote on his Twitter on Wednesday that the video was filmed in 2010 during his college reunion.
