Taiwanese Animation’s take on Olympics: Scissoring figure skaters, Putin-bear back rubs (video)


Yeah, this video pretty much sums it up. Heading into Opening Ceremonies on Friday, the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi has had all the qualities of a raging dumpster fire.

Much of the talk has surrounded around bathrooms and plumbing issues — which are covered — but the Taiwanese Animation Treatment of the upcoming Games focuses more upon Russian President Vladimir Putin, security issues, and, as the video title explains, “The 2014 So Gay Winter Olympics.”

That’s why the video features two male figure skaters scissoring, apparently.

It also features Putin oiling up before his Olympics debut. Later, a shirtless Putin receives a semi-erotic back rub from a bear, so, business as usual for Taiwanese Animation Treatments.
