In Moscow, naked woman find you. At least that’s what many Russians found out last year, when a 40-year-old Russian hacker named Igor Blinnikov somehow found his way onto a 600 square foot video billboard where he played NSFW video for passing motorists. Igor called it a “bad joke” when he confessed, but that didn’t stop him from getting sentenced to one and a half years in jail.

Shortly after the verdict, Igor said that he had “expected a bit less” jail time. He plans to appeal the ruling for less jail time, but considering he was jailed previously for four and a half years after trying to sell 13g of marijuana, something tells me he’s lucky to get just a year and a half. According to Russian news website lenta.ru, the video caused many Russians to gawk, affecting traffic for miles. When asked why he did it, he said he was looking for “something to do.”

Learn from his example, kiddies!
