The Fish Day
In Moscow, Alexander Rybak visited the subway and acquired women’s panties
1) 6th of November, 11:00
The winner of ESC-2009 came to Moscow for three days to present the video and the single for the song “Dostala”/”You’ve driven me up the wall”. The singer dedicated it to an intrusive female fan from Israel who calls and writes him 50 times a day. After broadcasting in the Russian Radio Rybak was approached by Moscow’s female fans too.
2) 6th of November 22:13
The singer had dinner with his friends in the restaurant “Pontoon” on the embankment. There, Sasha ordered a California Roll, Diet Cola, steamed asparagus, and latte. The whole invoice for the evening summed up as 8.790 roubles (~$300), the singer paid for everybody.

Alexander is a fan of LEGO building kits, especially of the brand “Star Wars”. He spent approximately 5.000 Euro this year on LEGO. In the trading center “Atrium” he visited a specialty shop and bought a building kit for his collection.

In the “Atrium” the singer visited the underwear shop “Defile” as well. He spent about half an hour there. As a result, he chose red lacy panties. We wonder who will get them. Did Alexander get a girlfriend? 😉

In Moscow, Alexander stayed with his close friends – in an 11-floor building in one of the sleeping quarters. Each of the three days the artist, whose time was scheduled down to the minute, returned back to the house around midnight, called on the intercom and patiently waited for them to open the door.
4) 7th of November, 16.20
Because of a traffic jam Sasha had to descend to the subway – otherwise one of the planned shootings would fall through. The nearest subway station was “Smolenskaya”. The singer was lucky – it wasn’t a peak hour.
