TONS OF MUSIC VIDEOS are shot in New York City. Not too many are shot in Russia’s rural Ural Mountains. Canadian pop artist Kiesza’s “Hideaway” music video, a single-take dance routine set on the streets of Brooklyn, came out earlier this year, and it took off. It has everything you want from a music video: hipsters in ridiculous clothes, minor acrobatics, and vaguely confused onlookers. Kiesza’s video has 162 million views, so it’s only natural that it got parodied.
Russian comedy duo Julia “Bonya” Starostina and Michail “Kuzmich” Kuzminykh put together this send-up of Kiesza’s music video shot their own version of “Hideaway,” a single-take dance routine set in a small Russian village. It has everything you want from a music video: tractor rides, minor acrobatics, and chicken dunking.
Check out the parody video above. The original Kiesza video is below.
