Putin Campaign Ad Likens Virginity To Voting [VIDEO]

Sex sells, so are you surprised that a sexually charged ad about pseudo-stud Vladimir Putin would grab the world’s attention?
In an attempt to appeal to a younger demographic, Vladimir Putin’s supporters have released a series of risque ads for the prime minister’s upcoming presidential campaign. One of the clips features a young woman (Taylor Swift’s Russian doppelganger) paying a visit to a psychic. The young lady wants to know who she is destined for and says, “I wish it to be for love — It is my first time.” She is not, however, talking about being a sexual virgin, but a virgin to voting. The psychic flips a tarot card and reveals Putin, inspiring the braided blondie to flash an expression of amusement and cast her vote for him.
We’ve seen sexual innuendos in Putin campaigns before, and perhaps these videos will give Putin a boost in his election standing or increase his “cool” factor. These ads aren’t likely to lose him many votes, but they definitely creep people out, so we think he should stick to hugging puppies over trying to entertain sex-crazed kids.
Whether you speak Russian or not, the clip will definitely get a shudder out of you, so watch if you dare:
