    Video: Subaru XV runs over dog in Russian ad, but in a funny way
    1398704340

    In case you're wondering, no, the woman didn't actually hit the dog. This is just a commercial, and a fairly clever one after you get over the perceived canicide, that's meant to show off the desirability of Subaru's lifted Impreza wagon, the XV Crosstrek. We'll try not to spoil it for you, ...

    1397583000

    Here's a fun fact: not all automotive calamities in Russia are caught on dash cam. Occasionally, someone with just a cell phone captures some gold, like this woeful attempt at unloading what appears to be a Lada. First of all, as with most jobs, having the correct tool for the task makes the ...

    Video: Russian driver attempts foolish jump start by bus, hilarity ensues
    1393376400

    It's frustrating when your car won't start. It's doubly frustrating when it's due to a battery issue and triply troubling when you don't have a set of jumper cables handy. Provided you own a car with a manual transmission, though, push- or pull-starting is a last-ditch tactic for when you ...

    Video: In Russia, old ladies don't take the bus... they push it
    1389052800

    It wouldn't be uncommon in most cities, in most countries, to see an old lady taking the bus. But not in Russia. No, in Russia, old women push the bus... for two very Russian reasons: 1) The Russians never paid as much attention to building civilian transportation as they did to nuclear ...
