Soviet Teens Rock Out to Tesla Coils and Theremin

I admit I have no idea what exactly is supposed to be going on in this clip from a film titled Komsomol, the name of the Communist Youth League. We’ve got Tesla coils snapping and sparking all over the place, commie teens little dreaming that their great-grandkids will shop for jeans in Red Square, deco television cameras (I think this dates to the 1930s, so perhaps they're just movie cameras), and to top it off, a Theremin performance. All in all, it kind of reminds me of that “Worker and Parasite” cartoon from the Simpsons (sorry, Annalee) but feel free to write your own scenario.
