Practice English Speaking&Listening with: 5 Insane Russian Dash Cam Videos

Difficulty: 0

( chuckles, grunts )

You-- You rub yourself on the hood.

( music playing )

Now, dash cams are usually installed

to document potential accidents for insurance purposes,

but sometimes they also film

a herd of escaped circus elephants running

across the street during a forest fire.

My point is, dash-cam videos be crazy.

So we gonna play a game with them.

This is how it works, Link.

I'm gonna show you just a piece-sss.


...of a dash-cam video,

and then you're gonna have some multiple choices

as to how that dash-cam video's going to end--

- I'm gonna predict? - You're gonna predict.

And then I'm gonna reveal the answer

by showing you and you the videos.

Now, if you get less than three right,

you get the punishment

of what is inside this Russian nesting doll.

It's a Russian nesting doll

because most of these videos

are from Russia

'cause Russian dash-cam videos

have just a very special way about them.

How much time do you think that you have spent in your life

looking at these videos?

I'd say between a week and a month.

- Oh, wow. - All combined.

Which is why you're quizzing me.

You know all these answers.

Yeah, I've seen all these.

Okay, here's our first one.

Check it out, Link.

( funk music playing )

What could happen?

Was that funky music just in my head,

or did you hear it, too?

Uh, it was in your head.

What happens next?

Uh, well, there was traffic lights in the shot.

I would love to see that one.

A lady lying on the hood?

- It's possible. - Mm-hmm.

I'm gonna go with C...

Let's see if he's right.

Rhett: There she is.

Link: And she--

And she just laid there like she was stuck to it?

Yeah, that's how you get an Uber in Russia.

- ( Link grunting ) - You're just--

You rub yourself on the hood.

( grunting )

She was hoping to get an insurance payout.

There are thousands of videos like that on the internet,

people, like, not timing it right.

Sometimes people get it incredibly right,

and it looks super violent,

- And a lot of times it's just that. - Oh, wow.

If I was going to do it, I'd do it just the way she did it.

Yeah, just kind of ( grunts ).

"I don't wanna get hurt." You're wrong, Link.

Let's look at the next one.

( men speaking Russian )

Is it just me or could you understand everything they were saying?

Yeah, okay, so anything can happen with this van.

What's about to happen?


( imitates Transformer transforming )

Optimus Prime is a rig, man. We all know that.

In Russia, I think he is a van.

So is it cartoon characters or a marching band?

The David Caruso thing is just too nuts.

Too nuts. Yeah, that would never happen in Russia.

And I don't wanna see an assault.

So I'm hoping this is a marching band,

one of those-- What's it called

when a group of peop-- flash mob.

- Flash mob, all right. - Marching band flash mob, A.

Let's see what happened.

Here they come.

Link: Yes! Am I right?

- Rhett: No, you're wrong. - Link: I'm wrong.

Rhett: And watch-- This gets pretty ugly pretty fast.

- ( men in car laughing ) - Link: Oh, wow.


Rhett: Yeah.

These guys are not helping,

as you can hear.

They're just laughing.

They're getting a kick out of it.

That was traumatic.

And Mickey was covering his eyes

the whole time he was kicking the guy.

- Rhett: Yeah. - Link: That's weird.

Rhett: He doesn't wanna see himself commit these deeds.

That is odd

and really off brand.

Well, that van is the Russian version of Universal Studios.

Off-brand Mickey comes out--

'cause he's not even at Universal. He's Disney. Get it? Yeah.

I get it, I get it, I get it.

- I'm wrong. Not doing good. - Yeah, you're wrong.

You gotta get the next three right.

Let's see if you can get this one right.

Check it out.

- Not a lot to go on. Not a lot to go on. - Oh, what?

Just an overcast day in Russia.

Bumper-to-bumper traffic.

What's about to happen?

Oh, there they are.

Um, snap.

What, the driver laughs so hard at what, he drives off a bridge?

I mean, it's Russia. It could be anything.

What would he be laughing at?

Two dogs humping?

You would choose something like that.

- But would you? - You know what?

I'mma go with he drives off the bridge

'cause he's laughing hard.

- You sure you wanna go with that? - Yeah.

- Yeah. - You sure?

Because you might wanna go with one that's right

so you have a chance to continue to win.


Okay, well, then I'll go with...

B, he drives off a bridge into a shallow pond.

All right, let's show him the correct answer.

- There they are, Link. - Link: Oh, gosh.

It's two dogs humping.

Yeah, exactly.

I mean, talk about adding danger into the equation.

- Yeah. - They've definitely done that.

That makes it more... exciting.

Actually that's just a deleted scene from "Lady And The Tramp."

Wow, right there. I mean, there's not even lanes

separating those cars.

That's a dangerous place to get it on.

Link, now you're going for the negative queen sweep.

- Yes. - Okay.

Here's your next video.

Link: Okay, whoop-- Ooh.

Man, I can see there's about to be a big crash.

That Civic was about to hit that Volvo.

Now, just keep in mind. This is America.

This happened in America.

All the rules are different.


What's about to happen?


And did a dog show up, too? 'Cause this could get really risqué.


immediately I was drawn to the throwing of groceries.

- Yep. - But the party balloons coming out of a trunk--

I can see that happening after a crash,

that would, like, put a silver lining on the whole thing,

like it becomes a celebration.

- I'm hoping for that one... - Uh-huh.

...that it's A,

but I'm actually guessing that it's B.

- Okay. - Groceries.

Groceries? Let's see what it is.

Link: Ooh! Grea--

( together ) Balloons!

It was the balloons, Link.


Yeah, those DIY airbags are a bad idea.

All right, Link, you've missed all of them.

- Which is great, right? - All of them.

Good. Let me miss this next one, too.

Here's the last video.

( laughing )

Just a--

It's just an intersection.

Yeah, what's about to happen?


Or D-- The car from "Cars" comes out and says,

"You believed in me so much so now I'm real!"


The car from "Cars."

It just could be any of them.

- Right. - The car.

What if that happened? That would be so awesome.

That would actually change my life.

It would confirm a lot of things for me.

- Yeah. - Yeah.

But we know that's not it.

So which other one is it not

that I can guess so that I get them all wrong?

Right, that's the goal here.

I think it's stormtrooper.

So I'm not gonna guess stormtrooper.

- Okay. - Uh, I'm gonna go with bathtub

blown in by the wind.

- Blowing in bathtub. - For the loss.

( horn honking )

You were right/wrong, Link.

Link: Oh, wow.

Rhett: And then he just runs the red light.

Link: He was so ready to be honked at,

like he was ready with the blaster.

Still better than Episode One.

Congratulations, Link.

Is this a punishment?

Yeah. That's yours. Open it up.

Be very careful.

Be very careful?

- Yeah - It's not a snake, is it?

It's not a snake, but...

You don't have to go slowly. Just be careful.

That's some spoiled borscht.

( shudders, coughs )


And now it's yours?

Congratulations on your negative queen sweep.

What is borscht?

It's a Russian beet soup.

I've been borschted.
