Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko has become an Internet sensation thanks to his knowledge of English. He rocked the world on December 2, 2010, when he was promoting Russia’s bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup. His hilarious speech instantly turned into a meme and certain phrases became famous quotes. By the way, on that very day Russia won the right to host the World Cup, but who cares: the minister stole the show.
Now, a popular Russian YouTuber Enjoykin (the one who created the much-loved Nyash-Myash) composed a catchy tune out of Mr. Mutko’s phrases.
Some time ago, Mr. Mutko talked to foreign journalists. Yes, another Internet hit!
No Criminality, Brah!
And here’s the origin of the minister’s popularity.
Let Me Speak From My Heart in English!
His thick Russian accent might sound funny, but he has every right for respect: first, he is not afraid to speak English and has a humorous approach to his own popularity; second, he promised that in 2018 he will “speak English like my friend Geoff Thompson.” Will he keep his promise? Three years left, we’ll soon learn it! As a statesman, he should!
