YSIA news has managed to contact one of the authors of a New Year clip, famous Yakutian singer Ruslan Ochirov.

“We shot this video for ourselves but then decided to send it to Mobile Reporter on Russia One TV channel. It seems they have decided that our story is worth a look. Later we shot the second part of our ride, as we dropped upon the Japanese. So, there is more to come! We had fun, and foreigners were amazed that it’s not possible to bite an ice cream in such temperature, it just breaks off with a distinctive sound “, – Ruslan Ochirov told YSIA.
