"Google Ads" in bus shelters in Russia

A remarkable sight in the streets of Moscow these days: Google ads on bus shelters. The ads show what a Russian celebrity is Googling for.

The ads seem to have a political purpose. The ads were placed by a group called "Ovoscham". The bottom text of the ads say “You can find it on the web, but can you find it in your country? Depends on you”. Which indicates this might have something to do with the climate convention which is going on in Kopenhagen these days.

According to Techcrunch the search terms Russians might be looking for are:

  • Police without bribes
  • Government for the people
  • Construction without kickbacks
  • Alternative during elections
  • Fun without alcohol
  • Whistle blowers (or people with active civil position)
  • Television without lies

The video below shows two guys with a strong resemblance to Page and Brin changing the ads.
