The dancer is a man wearing a traditional Russian costume. He has a beard, he is wearing a Papacha, a Russian cap. He also has dark green jacket with red scarf, violet pants and black boots.


A winter landscape. There are some wintry trees snow is falling. It looks like the dancer is dancing on frozen lake. In the distance is a classic Moscow castle which has been coated by snow.

  • Russian Hat
  • Russian Plane
  • Russian Rumble
  • Russian Skip
  • Russian Violin
  • Smooth Kazatchok


  • in just dance now he's remade looking in just dance unlimited he's in his old look.
  • He is a returning dancer on 2 different songs on Just Dance, the first being Hungarian Dance No. 5 and the second is Y.M.C.A.. He holds the record for most returns as a coach in the series (2).
    • However, in Y.M.C.A. he's re-colored and is not as blurry.
    • In Hungarian Dance No. 5, his facial expressions are clearer and his glove is yellow.
  • The choreography might be an attempt to replicate the Kozachok, a Ukrainian dance. 
  • The song is based on the life of Grigori Rasputin, a Russian historical figure.
  • The song is cut off right before the line "Ra ra Rasputin, Russia's greatest love machine, And so they shot him til he was dead."
  • The background reappears in Spice Up Your Life.
  • The dancer looks like Rasputin, due to the song's title and meaning.
  • The end of the song uses the Just Dance effect (the void-like effect that makes silhouettes overlap).
  • The dancer does very complicated moves after the gold move, though these moves are not counted for.
  • This the first song which has been remade in Just Dance 3 and then re-remade in Greatest Hits: in fact, the place where he dances is completely white in Just Dance 3, but in Greatest Hits it's bluish (like in Just Dance 2). This happened because the lyrics in JD3 were unreadable (they were white like the snow, so they were almost invisible).
  • On the Just Dance 2015 of the avatar, his mouth is comparatively closer to the moustache.
  • This coach makes a cameo appearance in the background of Uptown Funk.
  • The song contains a German word, wunderbar, which means wonderfully.
  • In the Just Dance 2 bubble, the coach's face, cap and beard have a red ouline. Plus, some pictograms have yellow arrows instead of red arrows; this wasn't fixed until the release of the Just Dance Now remake.
  • this dancer have the best reuses (but is tied with the panda)
