''Kazachok'' is a Ukrainian folk dance sometimes confused with it. If this is not enough, Norwegians pride themselves by stating that Russian folklore actually learned this from ''them''! The "squat" is essential in the Norwegian male dance [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Wq6If8MsFQ ''halling'']].

* In ''PunchOut'', Soda Popinski does this in one of his win animations.
* Part of the male dwarf dance in ''WorldOfWarcraft''. But not the Slavic-accented Draenei, oddly enough. They dance to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMs6oWDoQrY "Tunak Tunak Tun"]], which is ''Indian''. Perhaps because the squat dance would be anatomically difficult with the draenei's goat-like legs.
* The Jack series of robots from ''{{Tekken}}'' have something like this in their moveset because they are made in Russia.
