Babuskas Gone Wild! Behind the Russian Grandmas Viral Video

Next Tribe still from Russian grandmas viral video

We Americans haven’t corned the market on Aging Boldly. Check out the two Russian grandmas whose video has gone viral. A little background first: Some young cadets in Russia caused a ruckus for filming a sexy video to the song “Satisfaction” (not the Stones one, a new one), cavorting half-naked and in “50 Shades of Gray” style gear.
