In a widely publicised promotional event for the Sochi Winter Olympics, Russian Premier Vladimir Putin will "Wrestle a big fat bear" in a darkened bar watched by burly greased up men in dungarees, leather jackets and sailor suits. The event will take place in The Pink Polushka Sports bar in downtown Sochi, which is popular with off duty police, construction workers and Naval reserve officers. All the spectators, keen amateur wrestlers, will be greased up as protection against the sub-zero temperatures.
Spectators to the globally broadcast event will include window-dresser Lance Dupree who will be watching with friends from his apartment in San Francisco. Mr Dupree, a wrestling fan "Like forever" has laid on margaritas and sushi for his guests and a soundtrack that will include Bette Midler, Madonna and Lady Gaga for the eagerly anticipated bout. "Big Secret" says Mr Dupree "But I'm SOOOO rooting for the bear.Still, if Vladi wants to tell me how decadent and unnatural my lifestyle is, he can, like, call me anytime. And I DO mean anytime"
