17 The Video Sunday

The Video Sunday

Every week many of new videos appear in Russian part of Internet. Some of them become very popular and circulate among numerous Russian blogs etc. We often put them here too and now decided to collect them all during the week and publish in one separate post let's say on Sundays. So meet the first video Sunday. The first video was made by some Russian guys as an answer to the speech of Condoleezza Rice. It was that time when she expressed the position about Russian actions in South Ossetia and Georgia. The makers of this video replaced Condi with Darth Vader and ..., well, see it yourself above. The video got very popular in Russia last week. The
next video was widely discussed on Russian Internet last week. It's an ad from Pioneer electronics company saying "Better use GPS when travel to distant and unknown places".   And now some Russian music. This video was a true hit last week among bloggers and others. It's an example of Russian gangsta-rap. The rising star is Slava Mook, was warmly accepted by many, many requests for mp3 and HD versions were posted and Slava promised to continue publishing his new songs. It's easy to become popular these days. Well, we stop here today, next Sunday see more Russian hits of the week.

Selling Planes is Easy

Farnborough International Air Show, England, the strict and conservative event where big guys of different countries meet and sign multi-million military and civil aviation contracts. This is the Russian "Klimov Corporation" section - one of the biggest
Russian aviation companies. Sure, they have plenty of customers, but they know how to attract even more! And those planes of "Klimov" can be as serious as those ones on this archive recording from Old Soviet Secret Files:
29 Russian Woodcutters Celebrate

Russian Woodcutters Celebrate

Thirty eight years ago, in 1970 there was a hundred year anniversary of Vladimir Lenin, the guy who inspired Russian people to overthrow the previous Tsar government in Russia in 1917. He was a real icon for many Russians and so in one Siberian town some woodcutters decided to celebrate this anniversary by cutting all the trees on a big field leaving only those that would form a really huge message "100 Years to Lenin". There were no Google Earth back there, no satellite photos on Internet, no Internet itself, so they didn't do it
for some Internet trick, like "See what we have down pointing your sat pictures browser to .....". The real reasons are not clear and forgotten now, maybe they got an order from Moscow to make such a big message for American spy satellites, maybe it was their own wish to create something that cannot be observed from the Earth by a regular person. Anyways now, 30 years later we can see it. You can see it from Google yourself following this link. You can see it on google earth yourself.

Fool Your Neighbors

Russia exports a lot of armaments and military equipments to other countries. Some more countries would like to buy it too but their budgets can't afford them to do this, so Russian engineers have created a full set of fake weaponry for some countries. If you
are a military leader of some not-so-rich country you can be as cool as your more wealthy neighbors. It would be just like a real thing for the foreign satellites or spy-planes, just bring it to the place, inflate and you are done.
