Awesome Russia

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.

Why Not to Buy a LADA

Why Not to Buy a LADA

Over the years, Russia hasn’t exactly been known for the quality of its cars. At best, they’re utilitarian, and at worst, well, we present… the LADA. Yes, we know it was rigged, but we still laughed.

Drinking Absinthe, Russian Style

Drinking Absinthe, Russian Style

In Soviet Russia, they do everything a bit harder than we do. Take for instance, this unusual method of downing a shot of absinthe. We’re betting he had a couple of shots before shooting this video, though.

Military Clown Car

Military Clown Car

While we’ve seen as many as 24 people cram into a Mini, the never-ending stream of Russian troops coming out of the back of this truck remind us of some sort of alien spawn-point in a videogame.

Half Cop Car

Half Cop Car

Judging from the prices at that gas station, we’re guessing the police cars in Russia have been reduced in size in order to conserve on fuel. Or maybe they just built it to chase this guy.

Avoiding an Accident with Style

Avoiding an Accident with Style

Another devastating traffic accident caught on the streets of Russia – this time, a pedestrian narrowly escapes death or serious injury by gracefully walking backwards from the flying debris.

Kalashnikov Vodka AK 47 Bottle

Kalashnikov Vodka AK 47 Bottle

We’re not sure if you can still order this vodka, sold in an AK-47 shaped bottle, but it’s too awesome not to mention, even if the limited run of 13,000 bottles is already gone. You might still find it on eBay too.

Imagine an Explosion

Imagine an Explosion

A driver drives down the highway in Russia, when suddenly, the sky lights up with an incredible power plant explosion, all the while John Lennon provides the perfect soundtrack.

Little Astaire

Little Astaire

This tiny Casanova doesn’t even care that the Lady in Red is dancing with him. You can’t blame him though. With moves like that he could probably share a juicebox with any lady that he pleases.

Russian Transformer Bike

Russian Transformer Bike

Impressive engineering (or sorcery) from this Russian has led to one of the coolest bikes we have ever seen. Its tall-bike to chopper transformation could guarantee this never happens again.

Soviet Russian Motorcycle

Soviet Russian Motorcycle

In Soviet Russia, roads drive you… or something like that. Here we see that principle in action, as the world’s lowest-budget motorcycle takes to the streets. Or something like that.

Band of Bikers

Band of Bikers

A group of guys in Moscow decide to take a motorcycle ride, and play a little concert while they head down the highway. We’d feel better if they were wearing helmets, though.

Climbing Stalin’s Skyscraper

Climbing Stalin’s Skyscraper

(NSFW: Language) We’re not sure why people are all of a sudden illegally climbing structures in Moscow, but these guys ascent to the top of Stalin’s Red Gates skyscraper is pretty incredible.

Mass Bridge Jump

Mass Bridge Jump

This crowd of people in Russia are about to jump off of a bridge – in unison. Despite the fact that they are attached by bungee cords it still doesn’t look like the brightest idea.

Trecol Off-Road Truck

Trecol Off-Road Truck

This Russian off-road vehicle can drive across just about any terrain, and even floats on water. Its soft tires can even run over a person without injury. And yes, it’s polar bear resistant.

Twister Restaurant

Twister Restaurant

Designers from Makhno Workshop really captured the essence of a twister with storm cloud chairs, raindrop light fixtures and splintered walls for this restaurant in Kiev. Maybe the food’s good too.
