YouTube karaoke, Tajik-style
Tajik President Emomali Rahmon.
Hear that? That's the president of Tajikistan singing a Tajik song and not at all nailing it. The video was taken in 2007 and uploaded to YouTube in May. And just like that, YouTube was banned in the country for nine days. The country's Internet regulatory body confirmed that YouTube was blocked but wouldn't say why. Hmmm. What could it possibly have been?
