This is the first in a series of what will probably be dozens of video collections of only the best videos from Russia. The Japanese have the market cornered on the weirdest videos on the internet, Americans have the dumbest and most narcissistic and Russians have what are undoubtedly the most insane, intense, "holy sh*t" videos on the internet.

All of Russia is a Jackie Chan movie. So here's the first serving of thirteen insane viral videos from Russia. Stay tuned!

    Leave it to Russian Presiden Vladimir Putin (who's done everything from downing Bengal Tigers then measuring their teeth, to flying intense military vehicles, to saving a bunch of puppies) to want to be a part of the natural order of the majestic, beautiful Crane.

    Taking a bunch of Cranes kept in captivity out to the world, this "flight of hope" was led by the Russian President himself. Here's the video of this crazily unnecessary yet impressive and absolutely, mind-bogglingly awesome act in its entirety.

    Since apparently every vehicle in Russia has a dashboard camera, we get to see awesome stuff like this every day. Here's a video of a man standing at a gas station waiting for his car to re-fuel as two vehicles collide, sliding almost into the gas tanks.

    Not only could the man have exploded along with everything else that might have, but he could've been run over if not for inches, inches, of safety space.

    Man Ice Fishes with His Bare (Bear?) Hands

    Listen. I can barely carry ice cream cups back to the girlfriend I don't deserve when we go to Baskin Robbins. This man is a God and a hero. Because the fish is also HUGE.

    Russian Pedestrian Almost Run Over, Exacts Revenge

    In this video (taken, of course, in Russia) a man is almost run over with a car. He then proceeds to kick the car in a way that rules. In a way that says "never drive in Russia unless you know exactly what the hell you're doing.

    Elderly Man Gets a Butt Slap from a Speeding Vehicle

    No seriously. I am never driving in Russia. In this one a dude walking down the (middle of the) street almost gets creamed by a car making a three point turn like he's in a Fast/Furious movie, but instead gets a butt slap and walks away without a hurt hair on his body.

    Pullups on a 100 Meter High Tower

    WHAT THE F*CK.

    SERIOUSLY.

    Russian YouTubers seem to be perfectly willing to risk their lives for the concept of "oh that would be pretty cool".

    In this one a teenager does some pull-ups on a rusty metal tower, 100 meters off the ground. Not only that but he does the kind of pullups where you let go in between pulls.

    Jesus Christ, you guys.
