Leningrad Cowboys – Rocky VI

Some of you may be familiar with the connection between Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki and the band Leningrad Cowboys. Kaurismäki directed two feature movies starring the band (LC Go America and LC Meet Moses – the latter an attempt to make the worst movie possible), their concert movie (Total Balalaika Show) and several of their videos.
Rocky VI is a strange entry in their collaboration: it may be a music video, but it sounds different from most of their tracks and feels more like a short movie.

So here it is in its 8 minute glory:

P.S. Here, by way of contrast, is one of their more regular videos (also directed by Kaurismäki), Those were the days.
