Vladimir Putin is an intimidating man at the best of times. And by best of times we mean ALL OF THE TIME.
When not wrestling grizzly bears or finding lost gold at the bottom of the sea for staged photo opportunities, you can be fairly sure the master orator is somewhere giving some fairly blusterous speech with all the facial expression of a damp sock. And now this been sent up marvellously.
This clever 'speechless speech' comes from YouTube editor Mario Wienerroither, whose video mutes all the dialogue and focuses on the smaller stuff. All those over amplified echoes of the mundane - one solitary clap, a slight yawn, Putin sniffling into a handkerchief - are nothing short of genius.
Though on the off chance if you are reading this, Vladimir, great job buddy. We think you're ace. Honest.
