Russian ice dance tribute to Aborigines offensive to Aborigi

This so perfectly fits into Blades of Glory that if they ever do a sequel they MUST incorporate some variation of it.

I'm not sure but I think a lack of accuracy could maybe piss someone off if they see a half-assed version of a traditional dance being attempted by two people on skates from a thousand miles away. I think the point is, if you're going to "represent" the culture of another group, at least have the respect to put a little research in, especially if your going to be doing something a ghey as ice skating.

Either way, the picture in the article cracks me up. :-b
