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!
