Not sure if it's been posted but watch him here, he's in great shape..
Evgeni Plushenko Контрольные прокаты 2012
What I meant was that I didn't think the test program to be Plushenko's real program in competition and that he will do much better in competition, not worse.
It's the program I found split up and strange. To me his bird arms and some movements look awkward and the Y-spiral weird. It looks like he is fooling around, improvising a bit. BUT! it seems they are serious about this swan program which makes me confused.

Humor (Russian language).
Soundtrack of humor TV program (see below), video from 15 Sept 2012 test skating - Sergei VORONOV, Konstantin MENSHOV, Evgeni PLUSHENKO, Artur GACHINSKI.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ondm9_sKbqc - soundtrack is from here.
They imitate kindergarten, where children perform "sailors' dance".
"Now goes ahead Jenechka (i.e. Evgeni), he will do all very good" - we all know who is this Evgeni.
Also mentioned "Seryoja" (Sergei), "Kostya" (Konstantin), "Arkasha" (Arkadiy, so Artur become "Arkadiy").
^ That funny video has way more views on youtube than any skater's test skate, besides Plu of course.
