Evgeni Plushenko Figure Skating to Ginuwine's 'Pony' Is Perfect


Evgeni Plushenko, the cocky thatch-headed Russian who most in the know about figure skating would agree is currently the best male figure skater in the world, has a history of performing athletic, colorful routines. Turns out, his most notorious silly routine is even better when remixed with Ginuwine’s notorious sex jam “Pony.”

This routine, believe it or not, is a real thing that Plushenko first performed during the 2005-2006 season, although due to the fact that the costume involves airbrushed-on fake muscles and removable stripper pants and running into the audience to kiss ladies on the hands, he performed it in exhibitions and not competitions. The soundtrack to the piece, as originally performed, was “Sex Bomb” by Tom Jones.

Obviously, the addition of “Pony” by greasy 90’s R&B star Ginuwine makes this a billion times better, as adding “Pony” to anything makes everything — cooking, driving, showering, waiting in line at the DMV — a billion times better (ironically enough, the only thing made worse by the addition of a “Pony” soundtrack is actual sex).

Plushenko won’t be competing for the coveted individual men’s gold until this Thursday, February 13th and Friday, February 14th. He’s heavily favored to win. But, thanks to the existence of this video, we’ve all already won. Bless you, Evgeni Plushenko, and bless you, Ginuwine. Wherever you are.
