People have been posting pictures and videos of themselves na ked and scantily-clad at work in tribute to their president’s slip of the tongue.It comes after President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, 61, mixed up his words during a speech on new technology.
During the talk, he said: “Innovations, IT-technologies, privatisation – it is all clear.
“We’ve conquered all of them. But everything is very simply, one should get undressed and work.”
The president had actually wanted to tell people to “develop themselves” – but the phrase sounds very similar to “get undressed” in Russian.
What many described as a “Freudian slip” instantly went viral on local internet forums and triggered a saucy flashmob event on social media.Dozens of people posted pictures of themselves at work including na ked and semi-na ked businessmen and women at their desks.Belarus is a landlocked country bordered by Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia.
