Bolshoi in Russia: American celebrities aka hookers in Moscow?

Greetings from Moscow! Bolshoi in Russia is my variation on Big in Japan. (Bolshoi means “Big” in Russian. Get it?) Stay tuned for my live dispatches from Russia this week.

This sincerely made me laugh today.

At breakfast, I am sipping my morning coffee at a coffee shop, reading The Moscow Times. There it is in the classified section: an ad for an exclusive escort service featuring Jessica Simpson, I mean “Lena – 24 hours.”

Another two ads with pictures of two Victoria Secret models. They are retouched just enough to make you look twice, but there is no doubt it is them.

I guess you couldn’t really get away with stealing someone’s likeness in the LA Times, but hey, this is Moscow. Anything goes.

From Russia, with love.
