THE BEST Russia

Bugs on The Windshield

Bugs on The Windshield

We hate trying to clean the sticky mess off of our windshields when bugs smack into them, so we can’t imagine how much time it took to scrub the bug debris off of this truck after it ran into a massive swarm of locusts on a road in Dagestan, Russia.

Let It Be

Let It Be

“Well I find myself in trimes of travel…” A so-bad-it’s-good cover version of The Beatles’ 1970 classic, as performed by a choir of Russian sailors, highlighted by the marble-mouthed vocal stylings of their lead singer, and an ample dose of hat waving.

Building a Tank from Scratch

Building a Tank from Scratch

A team of guys in Russia show off the build process behind their own homebrew tank. We’re assuming the plywood bits at the start were an earlier prototype, as the finished MS-1 tank appears to be made from sturdier materials like metal and rubber.

Zaschitniki (Teaser)

Zaschitniki (Teaser)

While we don’t know if it’ll be shown outside of Russia, this X-Men style superhero flick looks like it could be fun. The film is set in an alternate Soviet Union where mutant superheroes band together to protect the country from supernatural threats.

Comic Con Russia Cosplay

Comic Con Russia Cosplay

It’s good to know that folks in Russia love cosplay just as much as we do here in the States. This great video from Mr. TVCow shows off some of the impressive costumes and makeup at Comic Con Russia 2015. Is it just us, or are all the women in Russia gorgeous?

Playground or Torture Devices?

Playground or Torture Devices?

A man in Russia shows off some cold war era playground equipment that seems more like something the KGB would use for interrogations than something kids should be playing on. Even if the guy fit better, the rides still look awful.

Dumb Guy, Hungry Snowmobile

Dumb Guy, Hungry Snowmobile

This video of an idiot trying to hitch a ride behind a snowmobile could have ended tragically, but the fact that the snowmobile didn’t end up shredding his legs like the wood chipper in Fargo makes us feel a bit more comfortable laughing at him.

Russian Air Force Museum Drone POV

Russian Air Force Museum Drone POV

This flyover of Russia’s Central Air Force Museum provides a unique perspective on these retired Russian airplanes and helicopters parked in the snow. The Concorde’s cousin Tupolev Tu-144 on the far left side is our favorite.

Mascot Road Rage

Mascot Road Rage

We have no idea what prompted the violence, but the guy who received the beatdown from Mickey Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, Scrat the Squirrel and some elephant is going to be nursing his bruised ego more than any physical injuries.

Ghost Car

Ghost Car

You know when someone gets into an accident and says “the other guy came out of nowhere?” In Russia, it really does happen. Just try and wrap your head around the car in this video that does seem to materialize out of thin air.

Zip-starting a Car

Zip-starting a Car

Ever play with SSP racers when you were a kid? This guy (in Russia, naturally) tests the theory you can start a real car with the same method when the battery dies. Of course, don’t try this on any vehicle you actually care about.

Towing a Truck: Russian Style

Towing a Truck: Russian Style

They clearly like to do things a little differently in Russia than here in the States. Case in point: When this 18-wheeler broke down in the snow, they called in the heavy artillery to tow it out. Yes, folks. That’s a tank.

Russian Soldier Beatboxes

Russian Soldier Beatboxes

After watching this clip of a Russian soldier spitting beats faster than an electronic drum machine, we almost felt the need to wipe his saliva off our monitors. Thankfully, YouTube hasn’t perfected SpitSurround technology yet.

Ice Fishing for SUVs

Ice Fishing for SUVs

Normally, if your car falls through the ice of a frozen lake, it’s fish food. Not so for these guys in Russia, who managed to retrieve this Honda SUV from its icy tomb using brute force and ingenuity. According to the video’s poster, it still drives.

Shade’s Russian Roof Run

Shade’s Russian Roof Run

Heartpounding POV footage captured by 3RUN parkour and freerunning athlete Shade Zlat as he jumps from beam to beam of this incomplete building structure in Russia. Watch in full screen HD for optimal effect.

Mud, What Mud?

Mud, What Mud?

Pro-X driver Kata Karenina doesn’t seem the least bit worried that the inside of her 4×4 has filled up with muddy water, as she hits an impasse in the Russia Rainforest Challenge. She says: “I’m up to my ears in sh*t, but I’m happy.”

Fill ‘Er up!

Fill ‘Er up!

Yes, in some parts of the world they still have gas station attendants. And at this one station in Russia, they go the extra mile, not only filling your tank, but doing a little dance routine while you wait – assuming you brought a dance floor.

Russian Speed Bump

Russian Speed Bump

Speed bump is where you speed, no? That sure seems to be the case with the drivers whizzing over this nasty bump in Russia. It’s too bad the guys who posted it couldn’t use video editing software without that ridiculous watermark.

Hover-Rafting

Hover-Rafting

A couple of crazy dudes in Russia (where else?) must have left their parasailing equipment at home, so they decided to take to the air on an inflatable “kite raft” instead. We smell another Mythbusters episode here.

How to Store Your Frying Pan

How to Store Your Frying Pan

While we can crush an empty soda can with ease, this Russian strongman can fold a frying pan with his bare hands like it’s no harder than folding cardboard. Surprisingly, he’s got he’s got competition. And maybe a girlfriend.

Down Under: Russian Army Style

Down Under: Russian Army Style

The Russian Alexandrov Red Army Choir and Ensemble puts their own Eastern Bloc spin on Men at Work’s camp 1980s classic Down Under. We guess they were singing about the Moscow Metro. From this this obscure covers album.

Russian Skyfall

Russian Skyfall

We’ve heard numerous cool and unusual cover versions of Adele’s hit theme to Skyfall. But we’re going out on a limb and guess you’ve never heard it sung by a Russian military choir. Bonus points: Salute when the chorus kicks in.

Hovercraft Beach Landing

Hovercraft Beach Landing

So you’re hanging out on the beach, taking in a warm, sunny day when this happens. A massive 600-ton Russian military hovercraft decides to take over the place. No amount of SPF will protect you from this.

Dancing Concrete

Dancing Concrete

We’re not sure why so much weird stuff happens in Russia, but here’s some footage of two giant concrete slabs that can’t stop moving around. We can only imagine it’s some sort of demon trying to escape the sewers.

Homebrew Ice Truck

Homebrew Ice Truck

Driving on ice give us nightmares in which we both drown and freeze to death. But that didn’t stop this guy from creating a vehicle that can drive across fractured ice and extract itself from icy waters.

LAIKA

LAIKA

A loving animated tribute to Laika the dog – the world’s first true astronaut, who was launched into space Sputnik 2 way back in 1957 – with the kind of ending we wish had really occurred for the mutt.
