In our dreams, we are Autorodeo clowns

Moustaches! Ladas! Death-defying flaming-box destruction! I don't know where in the former Soviet East this "Avtorodeo" takes place or even when it happened, but this is a goddamn classic.


You may have seen some namby-pamby British journalists tentatively trying out some two-wheel action. Try doing that and then jump through some fire. Then jump onto another goddamn car. Then try that upside down.

What makes the video such a winner isn't just the stunts. I've never seen a car show like this where people even look like they're having half as much fun as these guys. They've inspired me. That settles it, I'm going to clown college.


Ken Block, eat your heart out.
