The KVN team “MAI Team” from Moscow joked about sanctions, electronic subpoenas, persecution of journalists, and leaking the conversation of producer Iosif Prigogine. The performance was shown on Channel One.
The April 22 issue was picked up on Twitter. The performance can also be viewed on the official YouTube channel of KVN.
Here are some dialogues of the team members:
- Zhenya, get out, he took a new phone in a mortgage.
(A notification comes to the phone and the owner throws it away)
- Notification from "Gosuslug", then I'll look.
- Don't be upset. I am sure that everything will be fine with us, like the Russian ruble.
- Are you sure?
- One hundred percent.
Who are we fighting today?
- With reporters...
- No, I'm talking about KVN.
— We present to your attention the first Russian on-board computer with artificial intelligence. Meet the on-board computer "Cheburashka".
- What's the name? Why "Cheburashka"?
- It's irony. Also seven billion. Only spent.
The Cheburashka computer speaks in the voice of Alexander Lukashenko. “With such a voice, it was easier to ask for 7 billion,” the participants of the show comment.
— Did Skolkovo take part?
- Oskolkovo? Is this what is left after the sanctions?
Also, one of the team members asks the other “not to make excuses like Iosif Prigozhin,” referring to the recording of a leaked telephone conversation between Russian producer Iosif Prigozhin and former senator Farkhad Akhmedov, where they criticize the Russian government.
As Artur Tumanyan, the producer of the MAI Team team, told the Rise publication, the main creative focus of the team is the future of Russian science, and the organizers of the show missed jokes on the topic of the day.
“The MAI team is a team of young engineers created to develop their creative skills and competencies. Our main creative focus is the future of Russian science. Sometimes this gives rise to jokes on the topic of the day. The editorial policy of the television show Major League KVN is the field of professional conduct of TTO AMiK and Channel One. We are happy to be part of a large KVN family and give positive emotions to all groups of its diverse audience.”
