Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Citizen Media, Digital Activism, Humor, Politics, RuNet Echo

RuNet witnesses a new competition of high quality YouTube videos. The first video [1] [ru] is called “Half-Dead Bloggers in DeadJournal” and mocks top-bloggers exposing them as neo-Nazis, drug addicts, unstable personalities, etc. The other video [2] [ru] made by popular illustrator Zhgun, on the contrary, tells that unless you want to stay in ‘crappy Russia,’ (with the current politicians) you should join “F…ng awesome Russia” (#охуеннаяроссия [3]) [ru] and that the blogger celebrities are already there.
