Why www.

This guy is not liking that they added the www. in the billboard for the Fast and the Furious 5 (.рф) and gets some comments explaining it is only now until people will know Cyrillic domains exist: http://svinchukov.livejournal.com/251247.html

Re: Why www.

форсажпять.рф is the official site for the movie. Watch the trailer, you may enjoy Vin Diesel speaking Russian, all movies aren't translated but all dubbed to Cyrillic, which i think shows just how much Russians can speak nothing other then Russian.

Re: Why www.

They go to the bother of creating an all-Cyrillic domain name, then tack an ASCII www. onto the front of it? Are these people stupid?

сайт.форсажпять.рф would have been a better option?

I guess you don't know the fast and furious target market. They just want to watch shit blow up. Not too much thinking involved in the movie. Now, it's not bad if that's what you want to see every once in awhile. But the people I know that love this franchise, don't spend that much time thinking. Just from my own perspective.

They are breaking in the reality to people slowly and in stages.

Dubbing sucks dude. The only dubbed "movies" I can watch are cartoons.

Re: Why www.

Because some people wouldn't recognize it as a domain name otherwise. Not everyone is aware of the fact that .рф is a domain name.
