Popular sports website Barstool Sports posted a video Monday afternoon of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) drinking and shirtless. According to Barstool’s Twitter account, the video is from a trip Sanders took to the Soviet Union in 1988 when he was serving as mayor of Burlington, Vermont.

In the video, Sanders is sitting at a table strewn with bottles and plates. At one point, the group begins singing the Woody Guthrie folk song, “This Land Is Your Land.” The video cuts to Sanders and others visiting various sites in the USSR.

The chyron at the bottom of the video says, “Burlington Soviet Trip 06/13/1988.” It is not clear how Barstool Sports obtained the video, and NTK Network has not independently verified its veracity.
