Let's drink to all the Russian gas (the Gazprom song)

Translation into plain English Be afraid

Usage example “Don’t bother trying, you’ll never ever find a surer friend than Gazprom.”

Lucy’s commentary Best company song 2009. A middle-aged Russian manager sings lyrics that manage to be both sinister and sentimental at the same time. It is all here in the video: fur hats, key changes, deer running and cute kiddies peering into pipes. The effect is Borat, only more surreal.
