#BBCtrending: 'Us Slavs' music video mocks stereotypes

  • 21 November 2013

Slavic culture is sometimes portrayed using images of piety, simplicity and a rural idyll. Not least by Slavs themselves. But a racy music video from Poland that has been watched almost 17 million times on YouTube challenges those stereotypes.

The song My Slowianie - 'Us Slavs' - is a collaboration between the Polish rap artist Donatan and the singer Cleo.

#BBCtrending presenter Anne-Marie Tomchak reports on why this video is so popular and what it means to be Slavic these days.
