Viral Video: 'Greased Lightning,' as Performed by Some Seriously Talented Swedish Marines

01/31/2014 at 08:00 AM EST

Swap leather jackets for military fatigues and "Greased Lightning" gets even better.

A group of Swedish marines based in Afghanistan decided to de-stress with a little choreographed dancing, covering Danny Zuko's motor-revving hit.

This impressive parody isn't just simple lip-syncing. There are costume changes, blowtorches, a bevy of vehicles and even a few push-ups. The only thing missing is those well-lacquered Thunderbird coifs, but somehow this ensemble makes buzz cuts work.

Directed by their fellow marine Boris Zelada, the group was inspired to put together the number after watching – you guessed it – 1978's Grease.

It's a hand-jiving, foot-tapping, hip-thrusting cover that should make John Travolta proud.
