Chicks Dig Tanks

I almost want to put this up without any context, because it is just that AMAZING, but here ya go: "The Austrian army had hoped that its new video would attract some fresh recruits. Instead, it has engendered charges of sexism and insensitivity. The clip shows shreiking young woman chasing after a tank in the hopes of going on a 'joy ride.'" It sure does!

Blitzkrieg for Brassieres. I think that was a Kraftwerk song.

The Ukrainians did it first and, dare I say, better:

Coincidence, plagiarism, or homage?

I was ABOUT to post this. It's far superior, in large part because of that awesome music.

Right down to the gentle caressing of the cannon.

Wow, are there are some bad jeans worn in Austria.

Wait. You mean Austria is no longer part of Germany?

Wow. I did not know that.

By the way, that is not a tank. This is a tank:

Austrians have always been pansies. I mean really, "The Sound of Music?" We should have annexed them. And we did.

Holy wow. I knew something was missing in the Austrian version: only now do I realize it was accordion pop.

Not the first time that the sight of Austrians and artillery has caused screams.

My favorite shot is when the soldier jumps out of the tank and you see his hand "stroking" the gun as he makes his way down to the ladies. Very subtle, that.
