Russian children celebrate Putin's birthday with exceedingly creepy music video

It may haunt your dreams.

YESTERDAY, RUSSIAN PRESIDENT Vladimir Putin celebrated his 62nd birthday.

To mark the occasion, this group of children were enlisted to sing Happy Birthday to him in arguably the creepiest music video ever made.

The video features children singing a haunting version of Happy Birthday, while marvelling at Russia, making cakes for Putin and wrapping birthday presents.

Here are two children looking at Putin on the internet.

This wasn’t the only slightly off-kilter celebration held for the Russian leader. There was a giant parade in Chechnya reportedly attended by 100,000 people, as well as an art exhibition depicting him as Hercules held in his honour.

Meanwhile, Putin took yesterday off work to spend the day in Siberia “some 300 to 400 kilometers from the closest inhabited place.”
