The Commie anthem played on obsolete floppy drives from the 80s. Perfect.

When I hear "Soviet National Anthem", the first thing I think of is...This.

This means Sarah Palin is automatically President and Obama has to beat Karateka while dodging punches from Dolph Lundgren.

I'll be impressed when he pulls it off using Commodore 1541 drives.

/Remember having a program in the 80's that could "play music" using the drive heads of the 1541.

I have beat this game many times but usually allow the female to kick me to the death at the end. Then I just take the child from the well of Below the Root and seek revenge on the flying bird.

I cant tell the difference between this and the EPYX rendition of the Soviet National Anthem on the SID chip (Winter Games and Summer Games on the C64)

But, did this achievement get him laid?

If only it was possible to do the Game Of Thrones theme with these drives.... of course, nobody is dumb enough to greenlight a second article with these noisy floppy drives in a single day. or even a week, so I'll just have to wait a week or so.

That was a terrible rendition. It didn't sound anything like this.

There's a Doom version, and it's... Exactly the same!.

I LOVED those games! Spent many a drunken night playing that & Moonbuggy on a friend's C64 in college.

/We dubbed the Biathlon "Alpine Sniping"
//And after crashing on the first turn a dozen times in a row: "Friends don't let friends drink & bobsled".

You are all liars.

I know this is the real Soviet National Anthem:

This just in: The USSR was a dark, horrible, evil, oppressive place and doesn't deserve even this level of glorification. At an absolute best it deserves to be placed in the same category as Nazi Germany.

You do know they sing the anthem in the movie itself, right?

I think he got it:

Well I was quickly googling, and I found sources that say like you they sung the anthem, and then other sources saying what they sung was what I linked to, which was a piece of music written for the movie, so no, actually, I really couldn't tell if they sung both the anthem and this piece of music.

I prefer the East German National Anthem

Hail, hail East Germany
Land of fruit and grape
Land where you'll regret
If you try to escape
No matter if you tunnel under or take a running jump at the wall
Forget it, the guards will kill you, if the electrified fence doesn't first.

Thank you. Had I found that last night, I would have posted that, that movie contains 99% of my knowledge of the Soviet Union. I hope it's an accurate portrayal. :(

The Hunt for Red October is my favorite movie ever, so I love the fact that it comes up so often in Fark threads. Yet another reason I love this site and all you crazy characters!

Somehow I don't think the Nazis had summer vacation policies.

Maybe I'm wrong, though.

Exactly this. I was exposed to all the national anthems via Summer/Winter Games, and it was the first thing I though of when I watched this vid!

/was a master at gynamstics flips. on Summer Games.
//skeet shooting was always the tie breaker
///pole vaulting under the bar was my first cheat/exploit, I believe.
