>I wonder what they're doing now. Probably Snickers commercials.


GrosRooster

"ALL ABOUT nUtS"


ClinkyDink

IIRC one of them, ironically, is now pretty homophobic. But you know.. Russia.


dbx99

Oh weird. They used to play this lesbian lovers sort of role in their videos and performances


Shaltibarshtis

The "All the things she said, runnin' through my head" original in Russian literally says "I am out of my mind, she is all I need".


[deleted]

They were exploiting LGBT to sell records.


Timoris

This is the correct answer. To clarify, 'they' refers to Producer * Manager *


[deleted]

The women went along with it. They are just as culpable.


Timoris

In several interviews and documentaries they say that they were uncomfortable with the choices management forced them into. That or nothing They're not Pussy Riot.


Emasraw

Performative lesbianism.


Waddlewop

It’s apparently a thing in idol culture in Japan. Fans REALLY hate it if their favorite idol has a boyfriend or something but them having a girlfriend is fine for some reason and even helps them sell.


ClinkyDink

[Here](https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nme.com/news/music/tatu-2-1229758%3famp) is a link the the comments. A bot should be coming along shortly to de-googlefy it.

“I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is a little better than the rest.” ok then............

alamozony

Lesbian privilege.


DavitoDaCosta

Queen Victoria made homosexuality between men illegal but not women as she "didn't believe it existed". But you know, Royals so....


postvolta

Dude my grandma literally said to me one time that she didn't believe there were any women who were lesbians, they just said they were to get out of having sex with their husbands. Fucking whacky mate couldn't believe it


Jord-UK

mate, your grandma basically told you she got out of shagging your gdad by telling him she's was a lezza


postvolta

well aware mate, well aware, bonkers


VanDoodah

Did she actually have that power or this some sort of Internet legend? The British monarchs were just figureheads by that point.


DavitoDaCosta

:Apocryphally, these were also due to be criminalised in the 1885 legislation, until Queen Victoria declared them impossible, whereupon the clause was omitted - a joke that serves to underline a common, and commonly welcomed, ignorance, at a time when lurid, fictionalised lesbianism was often figured as an especially repulsive/seductive French vice.


mumooshka

so a homophobic sexist...


p0ntifix

Sorta reminds me of my mom who told me multiple times that I totally could tell her if I was gay and it would be fine with her, but also almost got an aneurysm every time she saw gay couples kiss on TV, while straight ones never seemed to really bother her. I feel like this would have effed me up big time if I were gay. Some people just don't see their own hypocrisy.


dbx99

Come on you can tell us if you’re gay


p0ntifix

"Nah, mom. All good! Haha" lol (no but really, I feel for gay people who were brought up with this kind of mindset)


TraditionSeparate

Its traumatizing.


Miffers

According to her: I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is a little better than the rest.


selling_crap_bike

How is that relevant to OP's question


politicaldan

One of them had a kid


lifeisterrible

ALL THE THINGS SHE SAID!


politicaldan

And now that’s stuck in my head


ilikethemaymays

Running through your head? Running through your head?


Puppy69us

Mine too.


MLCF

STUCK IN MY HEAD!


noreplyserver

russian version: Я сошла с ума ( I'm out of my mind ) Я сошла с ума ( I'm out of my mind ) Мне нужна она ( I need her ) Мне нужна она ( I need her ) Мне нужна она ( I need her )


Motakuji_13

Меня полностью нет, (I'm completely gone) Абсолютно всерьез. (Absolutely serious) Ситуация хелп (Help situation) Ситуация СОС (SOS situation)


Fuzzy_Muscle

Great now i gotta listen to that song again...


CrushCoalMakeDiamond

The one thing I vividly remember about this song is that their accents aren't really audible except for one line where one of them says "crossed" >Will I ever be free? Have I ҪЯФSSԐD the liiiiiiine?


Killer-Barbie

All their uniforms say tatŪmi


darkestchocolate

The girls are from the band t.A.T.u.


Downingst

Who?


ShitOnAReindeer

Tatu, singers who were either a lesbian/bisexual duo, or “just doing it for the money/shock value” depending on who you ask. From Russia, around 2000.


Mocker-Poker

“just doing it for the money" per their producer's strategy one has been in toxic relationships with abusive men after their duo ceased to exist, the second one is doing great, lived in L.A. for several years, released two solo albums in English and in Spanish, got married, have son, etc.


PerpetualSpaceMonkey

Early 2000’s one hit wonder. Pop song that gets stuck in your head. Check their video out.


bobobill

It's still running in through my head.


dr_t_123

All the things she said


-_-WHYS0SERIOUS-_-

AAAAAAHHHHHHH GET IT OUT


TheRealDikuBatoo

THIS IS NOT EGNOUGH!


WikiWantsYourPics

One hit wonder in the USA, I guess. [Robot](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4BS6JSF3zA) is maybe even more of an earworm. My headcanon based on the lyrics is that it's about a sex toy.


fastgr

"All about Us" was pretty popular as well.


WikiWantsYourPics

And [Мальчик-гей](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKBs77ygnBg) was super fun.

[удалено]


WikiWantsYourPics

Wow, they've really changed.


WikiWantsYourPics

I've just been looking for a good live version of one of their songs, and man, they really couldn't sing outside the studio. [Recording](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMOkbineeA8) vs [live](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIi0I765SUo).


PerpetualSpaceMonkey

30 seconds of that live performance and I’ve got a headache.


GaryChalmers

I remember them performing on the [MTV awards](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4khTvsq1pik)


lampishthing

Did they win Eurovision? E: They came third.


Pavlovski101

No, the Who is a different band.


7GatesOfHello

Are they TATU?


dedanton

Тоже удивился)


paulrharvey3

Yes


mdeane86

Was that tATu?


methanfetamie

yes !


faloofay

I know they're a band but can someone tell my deaf ass if the audio explains at ALL what is going on here? ​ im so confused


GeneralDogsbody

Basically saying that the two guys that were on the base were being poncy white girls... until they had their snickers where they snapped back into their normal form. "Snickers. you're not you when you're hungry"


faloofay

Thank you so much, that makes a bit more sense


EMlN3M

It's one of the "you're not you when you're hungry" Snickers commercials


[deleted]

[удалено]


Sharkytrs

I think its because as much as it makes sorta sense, why were they still hugging after the snickers, why were they both on base at the same time? although the trope sorta works, the thing as a whole does not make sense and feels more like a lost in translation issue, compared to any other versions of the joke

UnusualWind5

Spoiler alert: They weren't really gay.


morbote

“There are no gay people in Russia,” - Alexander Lemtov


Ekskalibar

Are gulags part of Russia sir ?


red_hooves

At any given time there was only one GULag (which stands for General Department of Penitentiary Camps), though it was renamed multiple times, and today it's called GUFSIN (General Department of Penitentiary Service). Which is IMHO more funny, since you've sinned, goof.


Deadpussyfuck

That base steal takedown in the beginning looked painful.


tehgr8supa

Seriously, that could easily have been 2-5 broken ankles.


ozbadgamer67

Fake lesbianism for cash, try that now Putin would have em done for "gay propaganda"


t4gr4

They were singing before anti gay propaganda law


ozbadgamer67

The orginal gay 4 pay.


naossoan

I used to listen to them all the time while playing WoW back in like 2004. Had a huge crush on the redhead back then. This commercial is very bizarre


BrimazTheKing

Leave it to snickers to make you laugh.


Anka13333

Tatu?


norwegian

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T.A.T.u.#/media/File:TatuGroupPhoto.jpg](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T.A.T.u.#/media/File:TatuGroupPhoto.jpg) Looks similar


Anka13333

I know right. But they look completely different now


Bakkone

No, the other 100 comments before yours stating that fact are wrong.


Anka13333

I know I was joking. They don't look like this anymore. Bleeeehhh


WeedIronMoneyNTheUSA

This is absolutely wtf. I'd watch it a second time but i don't want to ruin how weirded out i am right now. Bravo.


BeastWarriorDad

I'd eat that redheads asshole for dinner every night.

actionbastard27

I don't understand Japanese what is the affliction that the Snickers is curing?


leewoodlegend

I'm assuming they're the same message as the English commercials, which is "You're not you when you're hungry."


mint_eye

Being a bitch/woman apparently.


Dan514158351

Seems like this would be obvious


Alanotics2

you’re not you when you’re hungry. these women are from a band and they wanted them as a tie in apparently

I'm going to guess they don't still look like they did in 96 or whenever they were a thing for two minutes.

Is that Tatu?

Love me some tATu! Julia used to be so fine.


neofac

They did this with the UK snickers I think. You're not you when you're hungry is the slogan I believe. Damnit I've been conditioned by commercials, I'm so sad that I'm going to go and buy a galaxy milk chocolate bar, now with 50% extra.

They unironically got taken the fuck out there at the start.

Я и не знал, что Тату довольно известны за рубежом. Я приятно удивлен


SyxxFtH8

TATU, for all the success their lesbian schtick gave them, are strongly anti-LGBT. Fuck them.

Bobby_Deimos

Because it's not entirely true. One of them was muslim and other is very supportive towards LGBT.
