Russian Culture Monday: Crazy Russians

By April 9, 2012

If you're a Russophile, there's a good chance you can easily admit that one reason you like Russians is because some of them are simply crazy! And, thanks to YouTube and other internet media platforms, they can share their daredevil stunts with an amazed audience like this guy, who climbed to the top of the star of the Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Building--he even gave the hammer and sickle a little pat for good measure while offering viewers an unforgettable panorama of Moscow from above. (Thanks to The Chicagoist for the link.) The death-defying climb is reminiscent of the video by the self-named Black Devil, who bypassed slower Moscow traffic on his motorcycle by straddling dividing lines at breakneck speeds, popping wheelies for effect.
