С Новым годом!

From the Times:

It came as a surprise on Friday morning a few minutes after midnight when 3-D
animations of Prime Minister Putin and President Dmitri
A. Medvedev
appeared on a New Year’s
special on Channel One
, Russia’s
leading channel. The two figures performed a soft-shoe on Red Square, singing
slightly raunchy doggerel about gas pipelines and Ukrainian debt. Hardly
shocking stuff, except for this: Mr. Putin’s and Mr. Medvedev’s figures are
being added to the regular cast of “Mult Lichnosti,” a biweekly show lampooning
public figures, according to Konstantin L. Ernst, the channel’s director.

I bet this sort of clip would not have been real popular during Stalin's era...
