Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot's Masha Alyokhina and Nadya Tolokonnikov returned to Russia to "carry out a Pussy Riot action" in Sochi (where the Olympics are currently happening), and after arriving in Sochi they were arrested, then released, then members of Pussy Riot were sprayed and whipped by Cossacks while trying to film a video. That video was for the song they've been talking about in interviews since arriving in Sochi, "Putin Will Teach You to Love the Motherland." The video's been completed and is out now.

You can watch it below...

From the Post-Orgy Pre-Whipping era

at this point the whole world knows what they look like thanks to the orgy tape and the trial coverage. do they really need the stickup masks any longer?

what i want to know is do they play their own instruments

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 9:52 AM

Even with their instruments unplugged Pussy Riot is a far better band than The Swans

Miley Cyrus is the USA Pussy Riot

The Cossacks should start an oi band and do a response song/video.

Can someone translate the lyrics? I don't understand this at all.

I think that 1004's question was rhetorical

I think we can all be thankful they are not in our country anymore.

Pussy Riot still > Miley Cyrus simply because they have a cooler name, and Miley still looks like a teenage boy

At least they finally have a tune to back up calling themselves a band. Not really my cup of tea but the song isn't bad for what it is.

The Cossacks whipped them because their music sucks, not their politics.

^ took you a while to come up with that one, huh?

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 12:05 PM

let's all make fun of the people getting whipped on the street by random self-appointed "peacekeepers" while sitting in our cozy rooms about to look at internet pornography yet again

When will the hot one have a sex tape?

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 12:43 PM

well they've got the olympics going on, and there are Americans in the games, so I guess since the Olympics started

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 12:44 PM

@12:43 she already has a sex tape and its really gross.

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 1:46 PM

LOL @12:33 Nice eugene mirman joke, truly a relevant one.

Got my copy of the single out of the dumpster in front of the Academy.

The Cossacks weren't just whipping random people, they were diffusing a potentially dangerous demonstration. Over here, if a bunch of people started jumping around like maniacs we would take selfies of it as they blew themselves and us up. The rest of the world has no problem preventing possible riots and I say bravo.

Posted by Anon, a mouse | February 20, 2014 2:08 PM

You people are very dumb.

Those weren't real Cossacks, they were in costume as part of the video.

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 2:22 PM

^ good point, real Cossacks would have just raped them.

^ if BV comments were tennis that there would be an ace

This is exactly what these hoes want. Everyday attention.

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2014 2:47 PM

Wait a minute. Clearly, yesterday's cossack whippings form the major part of this video, so Pussy Riot got exactly what they expected and wanted. The more shocking the footage, the better for their video. They probably would have been majorly pissed and disappointed had the cossacks just stood around and let them jump around Olympic rings all afternoon.

2:22 has a point. It seems weird that they'd do some random whipping and yet not arrest anyone and allow nearly steady-cam quality video to be shot. Shit, the quality of this video is better than the library orgy video. I call bullshit.
