Russian Ad Watch: Flavored condom ad features a cop holding a huge dildo, for some reason.


(via) For "Sico" flavored condoms. Very sicko, it appears. ANI or another Russian reader, please translate. update: see comments for translation, which is strange.

Like most "Russian cops" his uniform is too big and the hats just look goofy.

But I digress.

My simple translation:

“What a dickhead/idiot (in Russian the word he uses is condom)!”

The cop pulls the guy over and says “ I’m an idiot/condom too!”

“What don’t you understand? There’s only three colours red, yellow and green. What else do you need to know?”

The text says Flavours?
“Strawberry, banana and mint”
Tasty!

Then the cop goes about how things cannot be undone, and in the end how important it is to remember to protect yourself while you’re young.

Colour condoms with flavour.

The Russian creativity..

There is a lot of slangy play on words in this ad, though none of it is really good.

Condom is in fact a derogatory term, meaning "dickhead" or similar. But the end of copy also plays on acronyms: he says "ZPPB is not GBDD, you can't just drive away" ZPBB is a general term for a host of male venereal disease, and GBDD is the Russian road police.

He then says: "The main thing you have to remember is protecting your "rod" while you are young" because the word for the stick the road police use can be a euphemism for penis. Hence the dildo.

The dude looks like Stephen Colbert doing an impression of a Russian cop. Does anyone else see this?
