Taco – The Artist

Taco Ockerse (born 1955), known mononymously as Taco, is an Indonesian-Dutch singer and entertainer who started his career in Germany. He is perhaps best known for his synth pop version of the song written by Irving Berlin, “Puttin’ on the Ritz’ in 1927.

Puttin’ On The Ritz – The Song

“Puttin’ On The Ritz” is an Electronic synth-pop version of the original song written by Irving Berlin in 1927. Tacos version of the song also had pieces of other Irving Berlin songs, such as “White Christmas”. The single was widely played throughout the UK and the US. Although the single eventually earned him a Gold-certification for selling over one million copies, it was Taco’s only major hit.

President Vladimir Putin – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (born 1952) is a Russian politician and former intelligence officer who is the president of Russia, a position he has filled since 2012, and previously from 1999 until 2008. He was also the prime minister from 1999 to 2000, and again from 2008 to 2012. Putin is the second-longest current serving European president after Alexander Lukashenko.
