Annie's Anti-Putin Protest Song "Russian Kiss"


It's the first day of the Sochi Olympics, and if you're boycotting the event due to Russia's harsh anti-gay laws, we found something else for you to watch - the Richard Kern-directed video for Annie's pro-equality protest song "Russian Kiss," her collaboration with the visual artist Bjarne Melgaard. It's a great, irresistibly techno-y dance song, and the video's bright bursts of color almost remind us of Beyonce's "Countdown" clip if there were more attractive people making out. Plus, the proceeds when you buy the song go to All Out, a gay rights advocacy organization. Check it out.
