They say it's your birthday, Vladimir Vladimirovich!

Vladimir Vladimirovich got a sweet surprise from Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono who sang him a birthday song at the APEC summit in Bali. There is no video of the said performance, but President Yuhoyono was said to be quite the crooner. (So that was probably not a repeat of the Blueberry Hill snafu.)

I used to send him a birthday email every year, but now I just feel a bit sorry for his staff who have to wade through all that fan mail. But birthday wishes there will be! If not in the Kremlin's overflowing mailbox, then let it be on this blog!

Don't look surprised next year when someone springs a birthday surprise on you, Vladimir Vladimirovich. Some of us actually do like you. A lot. Here's my little present to you:

Update: The video of the birthday surprise finally has made its rounds. Chinese President Xi also brought cake for him later that evening, which they used to chase down some vodka.
