Coubs of the week: Babushkas' crazy life

A web service called Coub, created by Russian IT developers Anton and Igor Gladkoborodov, helps to create loop videos up to 10 seconds long with a soundtrack. It allows old and new videos to be seen from a new angle and to find a new meaning in it. Once a week, RBTH selects the best coubs that depict Russian reality from a different perspective.

What Russian words do you know besides "vodka" and "balalaika"? "Babushka" of course! Grandmas from all over Russia are the stars of our selection of Coubs this week.

Old doesn't mean weak? When the spirit is strong, you don't count your age, you count the mileage...

...Or the number of sit-ups.

You bet they can dance! Better than most of you...

And sing as well.

And do all kinds of crazy stuff.

Babushkas are eternal! This grandma is clearly very impressed by the twisted plot and special effects of Interstellar.
