Vladimir Putin watching a 15-year-old do an ice dance to Schindler’s List music. The Olympics are just too weird to be real.—

A 15-year-old Russian skater named Yulia Lipnitskaya won a gold medal today in the free skate performance that blew many away.
Lipnitskaya’s choice of the theme from the film Schindler’s List as accompanying music still has people buzzing on Twitter:
Does it freak anyone else out that the 15-year-old Russian figure skater uses the Schindler's list soundtrack as her inspiration?—

"Get Spielberg on the horn! Stevie baby, you seein' this? Girl's a star! And not a yellow one! Say it with me: 'Schindler's List: On Ice'!"—

Figure skating to the Schindler's List theme when people cheer is a bit unsettling to me.—

For those who haven't seen the film Schindler's List, the red is significant, which to me made it even more emotional.—
