Motorcycle-Riding Putin Remakes Mötley Crüe Video
When you’re Russia’s boss for life, you don’t just throw a political rally. You ride herd over a biker gang like Vince, Mick, Tommy and Nikki heading to the Seventh Veil.
Yes, that’s Vladimir Putin, Russian prime minister, Russian ex-president and possible Russian re-president, strapping on his blacks and straddling a Harley Davidson three-wheeler.
After a four-year stint as Russia’s prime minister — in which the presidency went to Putin protege Dmitry Medvedev — Putin is reportedly mulling a return bid for president. An announcement could come as early as December.
Unsurprisingly, Putin’s choice for the background city in his mini-biker movie carries political significance: He’s riding during a festival to commemorate Novorossiysk’s resistance to Nazi invaders.
