Dashcam Catches Russian Powerstation Exploding While Driver Listens To John Lennon's 'Imagine'

This is a video of a Russian driving on his way to work at the local vodka distillery outside Saint Petersburg (everybody in Russia works at a vodka distillery in my mind) when a power station explodes. Did I mention he's listening to John Lennon's "Imagine" while it all goes down? I did -- IN THE TITLE. You know what I would've done if I was driving to work and saw a giant explosion in front of me? TURNED AROUND AND DRIVEN TILL I HIT AN OCEAN. Then started swimming. Then f***ed a shark.

Hit the jump for the yeaaaaaaah, I'm just gonna call in sick today. You mean drunk? The Russian flu.

Thanks to khz, who would have driven straight for the blast and had sex with whatever radioactive mutant emerged.

    PARTY HARD

  • the guy says like one thing, barely above a whisper, and then that's it. There wasn't any "WTF WAS THAT SHIT?!" <in russian=""> .

    And the Russians didn't launch an all out nuclear response, why?

    Dash cams are a good way to capture something, if one doesn't have the time to pull out their camera.

  • Bryan Kral

    I would have instantly thought the world was ending.

  •  It certainly looks like a bomb going off. I wonder why there was no explosion sound, though...

  • LegoHorder

    Most of the cams on the show Cops don't have sound. When the car moves forward the sound of the engine doesn't change. "Whatcha gonna do when there's no sound for you?"

  • Except we can actually hear the driver talking. Sound you mistake for engine is most likely sound of rushing air onto the windshield. It's pretty cold in St. Petersburg right now.

  • Sound is infinitely slower than light.  Judging by the size of the glow on the horizon, he was probably MILES away.  Sound wouldn't reach him for many seconds.

  •  That makes sense. Physics 101.

  • He orchestrated it. Who has a video camera running in their car at all times? Silly Russians. 

  • JimmyThr

    quick call the POlise 

  • Two words. Dash cam. 

  • Obviously it's a dash cam. I didn't know people ran around with dash cams attached to their dashboards on a regular basis. Is this standard in Russia? 

  • Олег Степанов

    This is standard here. Unfortunately, it is just necessary when you are surrounded by lots of drivers, who have bought their driver licenses or got them as a gift for birthday.

  • Charles Whelan

     Yes
