The Russian army takes “imagination, life is your creation” to a whole new level as they march along while chanting Aqua’s “Barbie Girl.” 

It’s unclear whether they legitimately love the earworm of 1997 or if they were just looking for something with the perfect marching tempo, like how you should always do chest compressions for CPR to the beat of “Another One Bites the Dust.”

They’re apparently also big fans of the Spongebob Squarepants theme song, so there’s that.
