One of the most amusing, and humanizing, events so far during the Winter Olympics in Sochi did not even make it into the prime time airing of the opening ceremonies. As part of the preshow entertainment to warm up the crowd in Fisht Olympic Stadium, the Russian Police Choir performed a bang up rendition of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." You can see the YouTube video above or a better quality video from NBC's Olympics site here. I don't know how long either videos will stay up so go take a look as soon as possible. I guarantee it will put a smile on your face.
This goes to show that despite all the rhetoric about terrorist threats and human rights violations, most people in the world do not have a political agenda. Everybody just wants to get together and have a good time. If only our elected leaders can remember that and let their citizens be themselves then maybe our world can be a better place. I wonder if the Russian Police Choir will take a request for "Blurred Lines"?
