Massive Suez Canal Tanker Crash Is Like Two Drunk Rams Trying To Fight

The thing about massive container ships is that when they crash, there is no way it's going to be small. And they're so big, that even while trying to do an emergency turn, they only manage to sweep along ever... so... slowly. Which makes this hit pretty damn big.


In case the video isn't embedding properly above, the collision begins around 2:25 in.

No casualties were reported, according to Reuters. Three containers plopped into the Suez Canal and the hit left a 65-foot dent, which is might not sound like a much, but you could fit a few Chevy Suburbans into that.


Also, it's nice to know that "OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" translates into any language.
