Fashism

Youth brigade Nashi held a fashion show by Red Square to drum up interest in the Putin 4-Eva movement. After all, nothing says slavish devotion like stripping down to your panties in sub-zero weather.

Vova, my crotch is with you. The dark gas elf is too short to lead!

Thanks to Scraps of Moscow for the tip-sky.

do you have to be an ardent supporter to get these pro-putin panties or can you find them next to the over-priced cherburashkas at bosco?

you have to love the spontaneous demonstrations!


btw have you noticed that those nashi flags look a whole lot like the hammer and sickle, especially if you squint a bit?

Slavish devotion to an extent, that is. I mean, she's still wearing hand-warmers. If those were full-on gloves she'd have surely been sent to the gulag. Putin don't play that.

The Nashi alarm-clock logo is actually a direct rip-off of the logo of their "orange" arch-enemies, Ukraine's Pora.

I would blog about it, but now that I've gotten a coveted shout-out in MDBIT, I'm thinking about retiring from this blogging thing. Really, it doesn't get any better than this, so perhaps I'll go out on top.
