As we get closer and closer to next month's Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, it seems hardly a day goes by without another new video slamming, satirizing, and/or scolding the country's anti-LGBT crackdown and intensely homophobic culture.

One of the latest offerings is "Mother Russia," from a group called Lean and Mean Productions. It's a humorous little number that highlights some of the many ways in which the Olympics, and Russian society in general, are actually pretty gay.
