Happy birthday, Mr. President (Putin)


Russian President Vladimir Putin greets leaders at the APEC summit.

Russian president Vladimir Putin is spending his 61st birthday attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit on the Indonesian island of Bali Monday. What he didn’t expect, however, was his present.

As Putin entered the summit hall of meetings, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono strummed out a rendition of “Happy Birthday to You” to the Russian president on his guitar with the accompanying vocals. Other leaders joined in the singing.

Yahoo has the video of the surprise performance.
