The Moscow Times is reporting that a commercial for this Fall’s Russian regional elections has sparked controversy by suggesting that not voting is something “the gays” do.
The ad is in Russian (of course), but the gist is that two young men are seen walking through a city, sitting in a park, and riding a bus while criticizing elections as “an illusion of democracy” and vow not to vote .
They end up in the apartment they appear to share, and move to the bedroom.
“They’re amoral. They think they can fool the people,” one is heard saying as the two casually undress each other.
The one on the bed throws his ass in the air, which probably gets a lot of “EWWWWWs” in Russia but is actually pretty hot.
“Let the others go and vote. We have more important things to do,” the man says as he unbuckles his belt and closes the door in front of the camera.
Like…. BUTT SEX!
But still… you should probably vote afterwards, guys.
Anyway, the screen then goes black and the election date flashes across the screen.
Some rumors said the video was the work of the local governor of Samara, but no direct connection has been made to any campaign.
