Russian mega-yacht move goes horribly wrong with three truck tractor pull

Posted Feb 27th 2013 2:30PM


In a fight with physics, several men decided to pull a massive mega-yacht from the water with three trucks - tethered in series. The experiment in towing goes horribly wrong - but not before rowdy rig behavior is caught on camera, the tractors spinning their wheels with ample wheel-hop.

It's unclear what body of pond-like water this vessel is getting pulled from - or why the proper rig was not procured for the job - but in the logic of these improvising drivers, pairing three small trucks together and going full throttle is the ideal solution. Perhaps these ill-fated truckers read our article on the comparatively diminutive Toyota Tundra successfully pulling the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

And feel free to identify the language in the comments section below - we're unsure of the language being spoken in the video, but believe it to be Russian.
