Each week we want to start you off right: with a balanced breakfast for your brain. This meal should contain the Recommended Weekly Allowance of brain-numbing WTFery so that you can enter your work week inoculated against the insanity you will soon face. This is just a service we provide.
And yes, poking fun at the commercials of other countries is nothing new. And it’s easy pickings. Especially when you go back to 1987, which is when these Russian ads reportedly aired. However.
