Finnish YMCA

I needed something silly to end the week, and a listener named Rick provided it. This is a band from Finland performing "YMCA" in Finnish.

Just when you thought you'd seen and heard every cheesy version of the already-cheesy Village People original, take a look at Gregorius. From the high school gym uniform the lead singer is wearing to the four dancers in the background (who look as though they may have just been picked up at the YMCA), this is a giant ball of cheese. The only disappointing thing is that, even with the song title translated to "NMKY" in Finnish, no one is spelling it out with their arms.
