Over the past few days, an old, hitherto unknown music video has gone viral: the music video for "In Another Life," by Russian pop star Emin. In the video, the singer frolics in a mansion with contestants from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant — the beauty contest then owned by Donald Trump.
At the end of the video, Emin (full name: Emin Agalarov) wakes up from his fantasy. The video cuts to Trump at the head of a conference table, delivering lines straight from The Apprentice: "Emin, let's get with it. You're always late. You're just another pretty face. ... You're fired."
Ever since Agalarov was revealed as one of the people who arranged Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer who promised damaging information about rival candidate Hillary Clinton, this video and the rest of his online trail have been fodder for people curious to know more.
That trail is littered with plenty of photos of Agalarov with Trump over the years, as well as a videotaped birthday message Trump sent Agalarov in 2015. "You're a winner, you're a champ, you're great at real estate, and boy, can you entertain," Trump enthused.
