    Ahh, the old FotoSchopSki, no? Looks like it took about a half-million dollar mainframe to run it. How fortunate we are that Gordon Moore invented his law!

    would love to have some subtitles on that one.

    He’s using an Apple ///!

    I agree it would have been nice to have subtitles – but I also laughed because weren’t the Soviets famous for removing people from photos too? I didn’t see any examples of that.

    and americans are famous for creating lies and fake documents to invade other countrys and kill innocent people.

    Check out the book “The Commissar Vanishes” to see Soviet people-removing at its best – Stalin would have loved Photoshop.

    Ah, I remember the style, remember the voice of these Soviet era tv docos!

    Also, looks like they had content-aware fill back then – what took you guys so long? ;)
