The Lebanese meme and the Putin remix

I`me very interested in memes these days. Few days ago I followed a very interesting one which was made to celebrate Lebanon`s independence anniversary

This is actually a remix of the following Volvo advertising poster 

Volvo_Lebanon_Original

and that`s the original video with Van Damme

The funny thing is that users on Twitter are mostly circulating another remixed version which features Russian president Putin as the main character

This hints at an increasing leverage and soft power that Russia has gained in the Middle East especially vis-a-vis the current crisis in Syria.

If anyone sees other remixes of the same poster, would you please send it to me?

Also, these days that I am obsessed by memes, any other interesting meme coming from the Arab world or being shared in the Region would be great. Thanks!
