From the What Would Teddy Roosevelt Do Department...

Colin Powell dresses up as a construction guy and threatens to crush House of Saud with his mighty hammer sings YMCA.

Powell danced alongside five other U.S. officials dressed in fancy dress and blasted out a version of the 1970s disco classic to the delight of foreign ministers from across the Asia-Pacific and Europe.

The after-dinner show is an annual highlight of the ASEAN Regional Forum, a time for ministers to loosen up after discussing security issues.

In 1997 Madeleine Albright, bowled over the ministers when she performed a musical skit dressed as Evita Peron.
