The song “A Man Like Putin” was released onto the Russian airwaves in 2002, but the video is only now making it onto the Internet. The gist of the song is that the girls singing want their lazy, drunk-ass boyfriends to be more like handsome, if very scary and totalitarian President Vladimir Putin.
Some sample lyrics:
“Someone like Putin, full of strength,
Someone like Putin, who doesn’t drink,
Someone like Putin, who doesn’t hurt me,
Someone like Putin, who won’t run away.”
Apparently it got all the housewives of Russia singing along, which I’m sure was the point. Sneaky, insidious propaganda is often catchy. Obama Girl could learn a thing or two from these two sluts. (via Feyfriends)
