Sobchak strikes again.
The thing with social media is that whatever you put out into the public sphere – it has the tendency to resurface, should anyone really look for it. Sometimes, it’s not even your own doing but other people posting footage, whether you like it or not. However, any serious person with presidential ambitions would generally avoid the production of any compromising material of themselves – unless, one is an opportunist type of politician. This video would suggest Sobchak never intended to truly be taken seriously.
This footage has surfaced from around 10 years ago, which paints Sobchak in a less than respectable light. At this point in time, Sobchak was a socialite and behaved accordingly. In the video she can be seen half naked or passed out drunk but generally having a good time. In the first scene, while scantly dressed, she says “I feel like I’m in a naughty, German porno.”
The video appears to be interrupted by ads, nevertheless it is a cringe-worthy watch to the end.
