I Will Never Love Finnish Rally Crashes as Much as Finnish People Love Finnish Rally Crashes

If you see a car in this video, it will crash.

But it’s not the crashes I love so much as it is the reactions of the Finns watching the crashes in this compilation of local Finnish rallies from the past year. Yes, a ton of people immediately do rush to help the drivers, check to see if they’re hurt, and get the cars going again (if possible). But there’s also a heck of a lot of hooting, hollering, cheering, and all-around applause for truly spectacular crashes.

Also, a shirtless Finnish man chasing after a flipping BMW with his arms raised.

And because I can, I’m also including this GIF of the newest model of Mercedes lawn mower:


Finland is good. Rally is good. Finnish rally is great.

The guy in the gif looks like a Florida Man, but fostered in an environment where his impulses are used for good and joy.

Looks like we just settled the nature/nurture debate.
