One Russian company in this calendar tried to show how they see the business in Russia.
The picture of the bears sitting in the dacha is the best one.Oh and ummm…FIRST
Wow, those are incredible! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the corny, tacky and tasteless russian humour
I hope things go better for you in the comming year.
Yeah, I wish this too!
Miss India – phack off! you leave depressing negative comments on every page. Get a life!
Not my problem you are a down
I like the april calendar best with the bears sitting in the dacha watching a Lexus commercial.
Yes, that is cute.
The pictures are not funny without reading the joke poems beneath them. Well, except the first one

Then could someone translate it?
Most of these are in-jokes about ad agencies business ( some of the problems I’m sure are international, some need specific local explanation )
If your niche is too crowded
From all the offerings,
And the naive customer
Chose someone over you,
Put a “yellow” clip on YouTube
Featuring the competitor.
The rival feels hurt.
How do you rhyme in English? It’s impossible!
If you cannot sleap at night,
That dark moonless night,
When worries ant nightmares
Lurk in your poor head –
Don’t call your mom in fear
Your psychiatrist or your neighbor.
Call you account-manager
He will always understand you.
Let him hear all your worries
He will have to take some Valerian
And you with a clear spirit
Can sleep, hugging the phone.
I had no idea that “account” in russian can mean “a manager responsible for directly interacting with the client, fixed to that client” in an advertising agency. Some sort of professional slang. In the picture the dragon is made of words like: “loss of ratings, annual report, rebranding again, taxes, deadline” you get the idea. And the warrior has “account” written on his shield, obviously.
If your brand is well-recognised
And is familiar like the back of one’s hand
You need a rebrending ASAP -
Surprize your friends!
If they aren’t amazed
Show them the budget:
London agencies for sure
Would cost an and a leg.
It jokes about the rebrendings of mobile operators in Russia.
There are 3 big companies: МТС\MTS (Mobile TeleSystems), Билайн\Beeline (also known as “Пчелайн” because пчела means bee ^_^) and Мегафон\MegaFon (which now comes to mind before “megaphone” the device when you hear “мегафон” in Russia)
Beeline was like and became like in 2005.
MTS changed from to in 2006. They used Landor – a british agency, and it was rumored to be expensive.
MegaFon didn’t really change its logo since 2002. is the more traditional logo, and is the recently slightly revamped one.
First everyone ridiculed the new brands, now there’s an argument between experts whether the rebrandings helped, but i think we grew accustomed to them and the new logos look more serious and professional anyway.
So now you see what really is going on in the picture. Me likey its humour ^_^
Ok, I officially have a fever and need to go have some tea with raspberry jam and lie down. If somebody comments, maybe i will translate more tomorrow. Or when I wake up, whenever it might be. Curse you ER, and my fondness of reading the stuff I already know from a different point of view. You made me sit next to a window till 5 am without sleeping, i h8 u.
Ahh… jam. That’s the stuff.
oops, I screwed up the tags.
Beeline changed from this to this
MTS rebranded from this to this.
And megafon is here and here.

[...] 如果说巴比伦塔使语言成为障碍，那么它没能阻止世界民族人民用音乐、绘画或别的形式来进行沟通。这个网站上刊登的俄罗斯卡通月历充分体现了这一道理，虽然我一点俄文也不懂，但是看着一副副别具创意的漫画，还是会心一笑。从麦肯大战、到俄罗斯熊的现代生活，从公园里的暴露狂，到浴室里的歌唱，这些漫画无一不体现了人们日常生活中的智慧和幽默。 [...]
