Sergei Yolkin. Capital-Dwellers! Drink Responsibly! 2011

This is off the official MVD Rossii website… no lie! It’s a whole lotta fun. It starts off with a clip of a DPSnik (traffic cop) making a routine stop… the vid really picks up at about 0:35… it’s a hip-hop song in English. This is a gas, no matter how you slice it.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I wanted something different for the first post of the year… this is it. Love to all of you!

In the original Russian text of the cartoon, Yolkin uses the word Милиции (Militsii: literally, “Militia”), the old name for the cops (now, they’re called полиция: politsiya). The former term remains in widespread colloquial use, so, I rendered it as “Cops”, the nearest English analogue.
