Rasputin/Russian Man from Just Dance 2

Rasputin/Russian Man is the dancing avatar in Just Dance, most obviously for the song “Rasputin (Club Mix)” by¬† Boney M. and G. Mart. While it’s unknown whether the performer is Rasputin or some random guy, he wears traditional Russian garb, namely a Papacha (Russian winter cap). He dances on a frozen lake in front of a winter landscape, and what appears to be St. Basil’s Cathedral, one of the most famous buildings in Moscow, Russia. For whatever reason, this dance has become a meme, from viral Tiktoks to a remix with “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.
