According to RIA Novosti on Wednesday, September 14, 2011, the President Medvedev dance parody was supposed to be shown at KVN comedy show being run by Russian state TV Channel One.

However, it was not shown and Channel One has not yet issued a statement on why they decided to pull it out from the show. Kremlin members told reports that they do not understand the real reason.

Medvedev, who celebrated his 46th birthday that day, was noted not to have problems with people impersonating him, as noted by his press secretary Natalya Timakova.

“He (the president) has posted links to some of the parodies of himself he likes most on Twitter. I don’t see any problem with it.” Timakova was quoted on the report.

Meanwhile, BBC News said that the Medvedev dance parody video was performed by a team of comedians in a pre-taped sequence and won the first prize on the said show.

Last April, a video showing President Medvedev attending a reunion and performed some robotic dance movements to the tune of ‘American Boy‘ and was captured on video via a mobile phone.

The Medvedev dance video became an instant YouTube hit and received a lot of comments particularly his style of dancing, which the president admitted that his dance moves may be a little stuck in the 90s.
