We often fondly think back to our time in Moscow in Dec. ’07 when we first met Liam. Our driver / translator / guide for that first trip to Russia was a great fellow named Pashe (pronounced Pasha). Among other things, I got a big kick out of his ghetto cell phone ("Bluetooth?! No, my phone doesn’t have Bluetooth; it has duct tape.") that he used almost continuously. When we met up with him on our 2nd trip to Moscow in Feb. ’08, he was quite proud of his new cell phone and the funny ringtone he had at the time. In fact, Pashe and Liam danced to the ringtone.
I asked Pashe to write down the artist & name of the song and a few months later finally remembered to look it up. "Gitar" is a homemade handicam video by 26 year old former architecture student Peter Nalitch. We haul this out to show people from time to time, so I finally decided to just post it here. Rob calls it an "earworm," because it’s so cheesy-fun & infectious that you’ll have it stuck in your head for days. So, in honor of Pashe, enjoy:
