*UPDATE* Video footage of the Russian police’s “Get Lucky” performance will numb your mind.
Russia threw a curveball to the world on Friday during Sochi’s Opening Ceremony, having its police choir sing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Who cares if it’s a song from French artists, it’s damn good. It’s not like Russia is blooming with good music anyways.
So now we’re all wearing giant flashing medallions while the Interior Ministry sing Get Lucky. In no way camp at all!

Here’s a little taste of what to expect when it airs tonight.
Twitter’s mind melted just as much as ours.
