Moments in music video history

Beach culture around the black sea was weird in the 60s.

I'm impressed that they managed to get all those Ladas around the 45sec mark moving at the same time without any of them overheating or leaking oil. It even looks like all the doors stayed attached when they were opened.

+1 for recognizing those heaps as Ladas, or Russian Fiats. I thought at first they were Trabants, the smoke-belching, two-stroke plastic-bodied demons from East Germany. There is a Trabant festival every year since reunification, they are never allowed to come back to the same location. Three hang from the ceiling of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
When I first played this video, I thought I was about to waste yet another 3 minutes and 25 seconds of my life, what with the prancercise girl surrounded by a leering sausage fest. Then, lo and behold, an army of gams emerges from a fleet of Ladas. What Soviet pragmatism lacked in automotive style, they sure made up for in dames.
