VIDEO: Russia's Putin Sings 'Blueberry Hill' At Charity Dinner

It's taken a couple days to go viral and get our attention, but now the video from over the weekend of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin singing Blueberry Hill is rising fast. So, for your enjoyment in case you haven't seen it yet:


"The scene was a children's charity dinner in Putin's native St. Petersburg" on Friday, ABC News says. Hence the presence of such American movies stars as Kevin Costner, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.

As for any reviews of Putin's performance, we leave that to others.
