The video investigates the social and political significance of t.A.T.u., and focuses on the singers Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova, and their former international promoter Martin Martan. The video looks into possibillities of popular culture as critical practice.
t.A.T.u. created controversy early on in their career by insistently portraying the image of being a lesbian couple. On their US tour in 2003 they visited the Jay Leno show on the American TV-station NBC. The singers wore t-shirts with the text “Fuck the war!” to protest against the war in Iraq, which at that time was just invaded by the US. In another Japanese TV-show the duo could be seen wearing t-shirts addressing the disputed islands located between Russia and Japan.
