What’s wrong with this picture? You get three guesses and the first two don’t count.


You have a big LandCruiser. You have cold and bleak winter months. You have boredom. So hooning it on a frozen lake seems like a good idea. You’ve seen it done before on the Internet. Nothing can go wrong!

Except when it does. I don’t speak Russian, but I know urgency and alarm when I hear it. Glad to see that the driver was able to escape.

Does that mean that it’s a LakeCruiser now? I’ll see myself out.

Translated by my co-worker (son of Russian immigrants to America, not a joke)

This is all paraphrased, there isn’t always a direct translation on a 1:1 basis.

“Shut off the engine!!”

“Roll down the window and climb out, don’t open the door!” (before it sank completely, was likely hoping to pull it out without it being waterlogged)

“What were you thinking you fucking idiot?”

Also, the LandCruiser was owned by the guy on the quad/snowmobile who was first to run out to the accident, he keeps saying “Oh no, my car!!”
