Russian bank commercial features rock anthem, sex dolls, and exploding Lenin's tomb.

It's time again for Russian Ad Watch, where we watch Russian ads with nearly complete incomprehension. This vaguely 1984-ish spot is for TCS Bank. Could somebody please translate the v/o at the end? Something about cobwebs and the Internet? Bruce Willis, who endorses another Russian bank, would approve of the demolition of Lenin''s tomb, I'm sure. Previous insane Russian TV spots here.
Update: see comments for translation.

The girl asks if we know the diference between them and us. Them live in a spider web, and we live in internet. So from now we will act.

Or something like that. When the Tomb explodes there's also a vocal of V.Tsoi from underground soviet era rock band „Kino“ singing the same line „From now on we will act“.

They advertise krediting systems. Somehow it leaves me with a feeling of bad taste, though perhaps it's because „Kino“ ment really a lot to me.

Sometimes you write really stupid things, Ranter. What sex dolls are you talking about? These are mannequins!!! Hyperbolic, again?

I'm not that stupid. Of course those are MOSTLY mannequins. But at the :20 mark, look for the sex dolls.
Maybe you should watch closer, and not be so quick to criticize.

I can't believe the fuckers used Tsoy for their retarded ad.

"Feeling of bad taste" -- очень здержанно, Artojas. На самом деле это хуйня дебильная.

I get the feeling that there are some old time Commies that are going to be really angry over blowing up Lenin's Tomb, even through CGI!
Hope they have good bodyguards.

Ugh. Using Tsoy for this is like using Bob Dylan for a Republican convention ad.

Also, the girl has a weird accent. It's as if she grew up overseas, and her rich daddy shoved her into this ad.

Perestroyka clearly showed how _they_ will act from now on!
