Pussy Riot - "Putin Will Teach You How To Love" Video

Yesterday, members of Pussy Riot were whipped while trying to perform in front of an Olympics sign. Today, in truly defiant Pussy Riot style, they’ve turned the incident into video performance art.

“Putin Will Teach You How To Love” starts out with serene scenes of a very gray beach. Colorful balaclava-clad Pussy Riot members are frolicking in the surely frigid waters. But, as often happens in Russia, serenity soon turns to chaos as a punk guitar rips through, bringing with it scenes from yesterday’s fracas. There is also some less violent footage of Pussy Riot performing in front of a different Olympics banner and strolling about the streets of Sochi — but Wednesday’s Cossack-led whipping is clearly the centerpiece.

According to a Chicago Tribune report, the song itself addresses the surveillance and security at the Olympic Games in Sochi, calling the games nothing more than a PR stunt aimed at distracting the world from human rights abuses. Watch the video below.

  1. How To Love by Vladamir Putin

    Step 1: Hold door for woman, nothing should get in her way except for man and stray dog
    Step 2: Ask woman about her interests, like children and knitting
    Step 3: Give woman hug like bear, big and strong
    Step 4: Be like the John Cossacks, hold boom box over head, play musics for the woman
    Step 5: Exterminate all dissidents to prove you are man and not little chicken girl, then buy flowers.
