In July, the group’s bassist Jared Hasselhoff shoved the country’s flag into his underpants during a gig in the Ukraine. That act got him barred from a music festival in Russia.
The incident took place when the band, famous for its sexually explicit songs and on-stage antics, played a concert in Ukraine. On a video, posted on YouTube, Hasselhoff is seen pushing the Russian white-blue-red tricolour into the front of his pants and then pulling it out of the back.
“Don’t tell Putin!” he said to the applause of the audience in the city of Odessa.”
