What’s the deal, comrades? According to the Daily Mail, Russians aren’t making babies anymore. You’d think living in your iceberg of a country would mean non-stop loving, what with the vodka flowing like non-vodka juice, a.k.a. water, and the inability to go outside and leave your wife/husband because the door is frozen shut. And yet, Russia has a lack-of-population problem, and only one 1990s R&B group who can help the Motherland now: Boyz II Men.
As Russia’s population continues to fall to record lows, Putin’s continuing PR campaign to persuade the population to have more children appears to have stalled. Until now.
Band members Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman and Nathan Morris will take a break from their Las Vegas hotel residency and rehearsals for their upcoming tour with New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees to perform in Moscow on February 6.
The band told the Moscow Times: ‘Russian audiences have always shown us a lot of love. It’s amazing for us to see fans across the world who know every lyric to our songs. We really appreciate all the support they have given us over the years.” (Via)
And we really appreciate all the “in Russia, Men II Boyz” jokes we’re going to make this weekend.
