Watch Pussy Riot’s new video for ‘Straight Outta Vagina’

The Russian punks have a reminder for Donald Trump: ‘Don’t play stupid, don’t play dumb, vagina’s where you’re really from’

Pussy Riot released a music video in praise of the vagina and female sexuality, featuring Desi Mo and Leikeli47.

The Russian punks collaborated with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek to produce the track. The Phillip Lopez-directed visual features a lot of bubbles, an inflatable duck, the band’s Nadya Tolokonnikova as a priestess in a balaclava and a chorus line of women and men celebrating the V.

“Don't play stupid/Don't play dumb/Vagina's where you're really from,” Tolokonnikova sings.

The artist and activist told the Guardian: “This song could be considered an answer to Trump. But I believe the idea of powerful female sexuality is much bigger than any populist megalomaniac man … Vagina is bigger than Trump.”

Tolokonnikova likened the spread of “patriarchal and misogynist ideas” to STDs. “Politicians are praising ‘strong leadership’. Trump openly supports the authoritarian methods of Vladimir Putin. And it’s scary. It’s not the world in which I want to live” she said.

The band, who served 16 months in Russian prison, enduring hard labour after their anti-Putin protest in a Moscow cathedral, intends to drop two more videos addressing the politics of Russia and the U.S.

Pussy Riot bandmate Masha Alyokhina is currently on tour with the Belarus Free Theatre. Earlier in the year, the bank released a video for rebel song “Chaika”, and Tolokonnikova featured on Weezer’s “Jacked Up” remix.
