Footage of a shirtless Bernie Sanders and his wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, singing “This Land Is Your Land” while on their honeymoon in the Soviet Union was unearthed and disseminated widely on social media this week.
A then-46-year-old Sanders took an official 10-day trip to the communist nation shortly after he and his wife married, The Washington Post reported in May. On Tuesday, Democratic activist M. Mendoza Ferrer posted archival footage of the Sanders’ sitting around a table “with their Russian comrades.”The clip quickly went viral and has racked up more than 1 million views since being posted.

Most of the men, Ferrer noted, are shirtless in the video as they sing Woody Guthrie’s 1940 folk song “This Land Is Your Land.”
The iconic American song has been embraced by many socialists as a communist anthem.
