Les Militaribles: The South Korean Air Force Tries Musical Theatre

by | February 18th, 2013 | 07:00 am

While the United States Marines did a pretty good job last year with their version of ‘Call Me Maybe‘, it looks like the South Korean Air Force has now set an impossibly high bar for greatest military parody video of all time.  While there are probably funnier parodies than this one, nothing could possibly match the production quality.  Have a look at the video below which parodies Les Miserables. It tells a story of a group of airmen tasked with the seemingly endless job of shoveling snow off the runway and one airman’s impossible journey to make it across the base in time see his visiting girlfriend before he has to be back shoveling snow.
