Vladimir Putin – master of the impossible

Posted by: Jason

I’ve always been amused by the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin’s public relations antics.

I wonder if everyday Russians actually believe some of these publicity stunts. In the past couple of weeks, he drove a plane to try and help some cranes migrate.

In honor of his awesome publicity stunts, here is a ranking of my top 10 of all time.

10. Driving a Formula 1 car

9. Scaling walls


8. Vladimir Putin “saves” a TV crew from an untimely death at the hands of a Siberian Tiger

7.Scuba diving in the Black Sea. Who would uncover ancient artifacts on a scuba diving trip? It’s Vladimir of course! He happened to find an urn from the 6th century!

6.Shooting a whale with a crossbow. Did they have a submarine fire a torpedo at it to help the stunt?

5. Putin helps out in a submarine. Look! It’s an oil deposit!

4. Swimming across a Siberian river then riding horseback without a shirt on

3.Judo – alright, who is my first opponent who is going down? You there? Come here!

2.Fighting forest fires!

1. Vladimir Putin and a band of amateur hockey players play professional Russian hockey players.
Who scored the winning goal you ask? Vladimir Putin of course!

    Sounds like it’s time for a MLB Minor League contract!

    Of course they’re publicity stunts, but most are not as ridiculous as you make it seem – taking an active interest in whale and tiger conservation, for instance, should be applauded.

    I, for one, think it’s pretty cool that they have an ex-KGB badass for a president/prime minister/whatever new top office he comes up with each year.
