Nothing can go wrong with that. Nobody who speaks out against Russia these days gets into any bother at all. Sure, the countries had a bit of a war-type situation over South Ossetia in 2008, but who didn’t? I’m positive Russia will take this gentle ribbing in Europe’s largest annual televised song contest in good humour, even if it is happening on their own soil.
I’m not sure we can expect the same cuddly approach from The Trammps though, whose “Disco Inferno” provides rather blatant “inspiration” to Stefane & 3G’s ditty. Those 70s disco acts can be fucking brutal.
Listen to “We Don’t Wanna Put In” after the jump.
