Apparently the soldiers are British, and worked in Al Faw, Iraq. Here's a little interesting info on the video from WizBangTV.com:

A soldier from Cheshire who starred in a spoof video of the No1 hit song (Is This The Way To) Amarillo said today that defence chiefs had "loved it" - despite it causing their computer system to crash.

Staff Sgt Roger Parr, 34, teamed up with troops from the Royal Dragoon Guards tank regiment to shoot the video at their base in Al Faw, Iraq, before emailing it back to Army friends in London.

The funny tribute to the song - released for Comic Relief earlier this year with comedian Peter Kay miming to Tony Christie's 1971 song - proved so popular at the Ministry of Defence that it crashed the server.

But Staff Sgt Parr, from Runcorn, said the Army's top brass had enjoyed the video. "I heard it had crashed the MoD's email system, but it had done no harm and everyone had loved it," he said. "I didn't get into trouble."
