(Newser) – Ladies, does Vladimir Putin make you want to take your clothes off? Because if so (and who could blame you?), you should join “Putin’s Army,” an online campaign urging Russian women to strip to show their support of their once-and-possible-future president. The campaign launched with a video of a blonde woman who, after striding through Moscow in high heels and a suit, scrawls “I will tear my clothes off for Putin” in lipstick on a white tank top, and proceeds to start to do just that, the Telegraph reports.

You can see the video here, though before you get too excited you should know it's in Russian and contains no actual nudity. The campaign has set up shop on—Russia’s Facebook ripoff—and says its goal is “For Putin to be president!” Participating women are offered the chance to win a free iPad 2. Putin is widely expected to run for another stint as president next year.
