Putin wins auction of James Bond villain's glasses.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has purchased a pair of glasses originally worn by actor Christopher Walken in the 1985 James Bond film "A View to a Kill". The glasses, worn by Bond villain Max Zorin, were sold by the Sotheby's auction house on Thursday for $1.5 million - the winning bid was later confirmed to have originated from Mr Putin.

"I have always been a big fan of Max Zorin," said Putin later "He has been somewhat misunderstood over the years."


  1. If it's not extremely bullshit, why it wasn't viewed in Russia?

  2. Because it's not neccessary, Mr. Zorin.

  3. When Great Britain acting, Russia is watching.
    So, who is real James Bond here?

  4. The insider in MI-6, apparently.
