"You’ll be happy with him. He’ll protect you like a stone wall." First time, only for <3.

Via. Includes translation.

Russian backers of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for president are appealing to "virgin" voters with racy advertisements nudging them to make him their "first."

Others:
And it's about right that you want it for love. I fully support your choice.
You should not be afraid of this.

I am increasingly worried that Putin is what happens when Victor Van Doom wants you to like him.

Is he catering to the virgin vote or to the guys who wish they were attractive to virgins vote?

I wonder how much it would cost me to get my mug glued onto tarot cards and distributed to Russian fortune tellers with the objective of tricking hot young Russians into sleeping with me. I bet not that much. I suspect it would be a remarkably affordable way to score with girls that favour very severe bangs.

"Ivan, why are these ballots all sticky?"
"No idea."

I secretly want Vladimir Putin to burst in, hold me down, and just take my civil liberties.

I'm waiting for the inevitable curiously wel lit and cherographed Putin sex tape where he manages to satisfy an entire ballerina squad.

The medium's plasma ball is a nice touch. Although I think the electrostatic field might make the spirits itchy.

We don't wanna put in, a negative mood is killing the groove

The whole thing is nicely produced. Very professional. It is almost as if Putin really needs to appeal to voters in a positive way.

Lenin starved his opponents, Stalin shot them, but Putin - the wimp - uses television advertising.

Naw.

Quizzically, Craig, an actor, seems more real than Putin...

Putin's team have demonstrated their knack for propaganda previously, with the music video "A Man Like Putin." Similar strong-man message, but in this one Putin actually appears as a James Bond (or Bond villain?) figure. This dates to before 2008, so watch for the part where he covers the phone receiver and mouths "Bush" (or BOOOSH, in Russian) to the thug he's sitting with (can someone identify if that's Medvedev?)

Not Medvedev, not even a little bit.

The Wrath of Putin: Mikhail Khodorkovsky was the richest man in Russia when he dared confront then president Vladimir Putin, criticizing state corruption at a meeting with Putin in February 2003. Arrested that fall, then convicted in two Kafka-esque trials, Khodorkovsky has been imprisoned ever since, the once powerful oligarch now an invisible hero for the growing opposition to Putin’s tyranny. From Moscow, as elections approach and demonstrators spill into the streets, Masha Gessen chronicles the clash of two titans, each of whom has badly underestimated the other.
