Former comedian Zelensky successfully became the president of Ukraine through the comedy series “Sluga narodu.” It is worth exploring the public meaning of this pop culture phenomenon for people suffering similar structure searching for a paradigm for salvation. This article applies concepts of public space such as forums, private citizens, connection, public opinion, authoritative representatives, legitimation to textual analyze this TV series. This paper found that it is the people, who build the base of democracy from humanistic perspectives by insisting truth, human dignity and integrity with firm belief in autonomy through virtues, morality and ethics, to overturn nightmares from poverty and corrupt to happiness and prosperity. The saviors come from “we the people” rather than elites, experts or foreign powers.
