In case you haven’t been following the news from the upcoming Russian election, the Wall Street Journal did a fascinating piece on it today. (Russian Mogul To View With Putin For Presidency)
The hot topics and trends listed on the search engine NowRelevant.com had the phrase “putin pictures” come up recently, so let me sum it up for you. NowRelevant.com shows you everything about a subject for the past two weeks and its results are blog and forum based, so when “putin pictures” shows up, it must be something recent.
The quick summary story is this. It seems that Putin’s advisors have told him he is running against the Dos Equis “Most Interesting Guy In The World” for the Russian presidency. Putin has unleashed a series of photos and interviews that has him rivaling Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stallone as the “greatest action hero”. Photos of Putin fishing, wrestling, shooting, biking, doing judo, shirtless, you name it, and it is out there. There is even one of Putin finding the lost city of Atlantis on a scuba dive off the coast of Russia. (Correction, on his only dive he found artifacts and treasure that the other 4,000 divers before him missed.)
Today’s Wall Street Journal story points out that Russian Billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, the same Mikhail Prokhorov who owns the NJ, soon to be Brooklyn Nets of the NBA, is also going to run for president. Mikhail didn’t want to seem that he wasn’t the most interesting man in the world either, so his campaign released a series of photos that include Xgame jet ski action, kung fu, and full court basketball action.
This got us wondering as to what it would look like if the Republican candidates for president of the United States had to run a campaign that related more to Russian voters than US voters.
