Ukraine proves it has talent with its newest invention: Sandimation!

The other night at poker, our friend told us about a clip he’d seen on youtube of the winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent doing her thing. Her name is Kseniya Simonova, and her thing is telling stories using sand animation. Yeah, you heard me. He tried describing it, but he really didn’t do it justice. It has to be seen to be believed. In the following clip, she tells the story of Germany conquering Ukraine during World War II. Of special interest to the songspeakers out there is the odd use of an instrumental version of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica near the end (or at least something that really sounds like it. Maybe it’s my imagination). It’s really kind of amazing, and my theory on why there are so many people in the audience crying? Some of the sand blew into their eyes.

Who said Ukrainians didn’t have talent?
