2 comments on “Voting is sexy…at least in Russia

  1. Oh wow. The tarot cards commercial definately jumped to the top of the list as my favorite campaign ad of all time!

  2. Here’s my translation of the “doctor” ad:

    Doctor: To tell you, the main thing is to be sure it is safe. Before everything, you need to know all your options.
    Woman: Yes doctor, I understand.
    Doctor: It’s important the first time.
    Woman: Do I need to…
    Doctor: Yes. It’s important that your first time is for love. I completely support your choice (note – can also be translated as “I completely support your vote”).
    Woman: Really?
    Doctor (looking up at calendar with Putin): With him, it will be safe.

    …And again, ad ends with woman going to polling station and that “First time” slogan.

    Like the other translation, this one is more figurative than literal, since some Russian phrases make little sense in English.
