    Ah ah, the first vid is very funny. At first, I recognised the chords of “the lion sleeps tonight”.

    But actually, when they sing in the end, it’s clearly the generic song of the Teletubbies…

    Flamby1er : yes, it made me chuckle too :)
    And you’re right it’s the theme song of the Teletubbies.
    That’s what it said in Russian in the YouTube info. Слова — Телепузики. (Words – Teletubbies)
    Well spotted !

    John: glad you enjoyed their video. Their version of the Teletubbies theme tune is cool indeed.
