The twisted mind of the Internet has digitally manipulated Putin on top of two MIG fighter planes. Since we are only treated with an image, it may be possible for a video to follow.
Of course, this is not exactly likely, since the video editing for such a prank would probably take more time to make that the original Volvo commercial - those of you who have ventured into the world of computer-generated imagery know what we are talking about.

Perhaps the Russian president is preparing to counteract Van Damme’s stunt with the help of Steven Segal, whom he recently collaborated on re-introducing a physical culture training program to the country.
The two have reportedly become close friends based on their mutual passion for martial arts.
“The first time I went to his home, I walked in and saw a life-sized statue of Kanō Jigorō, who is the founder of judo, so I was immediately taken and impressed and sort of really wanting to get to know this man deeper and deeper,” Steven Segal told Russian news channel RT when asked about his relationship with Putin. In fact, the two had met one decade earlier, at the 25th edition of the Moscow International Film Festival.
