I'm Not Really Sure Why This Guy Walked Through A Car To Cross The Street But, Well, He Did

I’ll admit, I don’t know the full story here, but there’s a decent possibility that everything we need to know the story is right here. This happened on a street somewhere in Russia, and involved a crosswalk, a pedestrian, and an early 2000s Lexus RX. What you see is what happened: guy crosses the street through the SUV. That’s it. But the question is why?

Here, evaluate for yourselves:

Maybe he was just mildly pissed the Lexus decided to stop right on the crosswalk, and just wanted to make a point? That seems possible. An invitation for road rage or someone freaking out, but, sure, it’s a sort of funny way to remind someone what crosswalks are for.

Maybe he knew the person or people in the Lexus? There’s pretty much no drama here, so perhaps that’s why the occupants of the SUV weren’t alarmed?

Many are speculating, in the YouTube comments, that the guy was a drug dealer, and this was a very efficient drop-off. If so, kudos to that guy’s simple, undramatic service!

This is literally it. Russians are notorious for petty shit like this; I don’t know how many YT videos I’ve seen of Russian drivers dropping trash out of the car, only to have another person come sprinting up in a tizzy and throw that shit back in the window.

There was another group that went around putting impossible-to-remove stickers on the windshield of Russian drivers who would do admittedly asshole tactics - like double-parking, or driving on sidewalks or in the wrong lane just to get ahead of traffic.

Guarantee that dude strolled through that person’s car and was like “Welp you’re in the crosswalk so that’s permission to walk through Trolllolololololololol”
