The Russian Police Choir Reprise “Get Lucky” on TODAY — Al Roker Dances!

So far the 2014 Winter Games have introduced us to several new facts about Russia. First, sometimes potholes go uncovered. Second, showers may or may not come with cameras. Third, the police love to sing.

Shortly before the Opening Ceremony on Friday, February 7, the Russian Police Choir gave Daft Punk’s sensation “Get Lucky” a whirl and the internet couldn’t believe its luck. Between the accents, the uniforms, and the sway-dancing, the performance had just about everything needed to become a YouTube sensation.

Watch the choir perform “Get Lucky” on air!

The folks over at TODAY decided to try and get lightning to strike twice by inviting the choir to perform live during the morning show, which is currently shooting on location from Sochi. Before the performance we got a brief Q&A with Gen. Viktor Eliseyev, conductor of the Russian Police Choir, who said his men have been “very, very pleased” by the positive response their recent number has received.

“It’s a great surprise, he added via translator.

The formalities done, the green-suited fellows tried to show Matt Lauer they could indeed get lucky a second time.

The result, almost as good as that first go-around, gets Al Roker to shake what his mama gave him and, really, what more could we ask for?
