Afghanistan R&R

Remake of a pop video from Telephone (group name? song title? Not a clue.) – here is the 21st Century version of  the WWII iconic troops-singing-and-dancing number Bloody Mary.

These guys warm my heart – stay till the chorus comes in! And be sure to give them kudos for being so upbeat on this 204th day of the ninth year of the War in Afghanistan.

  1. this is so funny.

    Are they real soldiers and are they in Afghanistan? I don’t think so they will be aloud to do a video if they were in Afghanistan?

    • Umer, they are indeed in Afghanistan – probably on a US base. And as you know, these days you can make a video on a cell phone and email it home.

      I don’t think their senior officers would mind. If the soldiers get a chance to release some of their anxiety in a harmless way, that is a good thing and probably makes them better soldiers. It also helps to bind them to each other, which also makes them better soldiers.

    • Of course, they would NOT be allowed to make a video if they were outside on patrol or whatever. But this is indoors in their own barracks.
