Dash cam videos out of Russia and Eastern Europe always manage to crank the pucker factor up to surprising levels, but this might be one of the closest calls we've seen yet. As a man was casually crossing the street with a pair of tires in hand, a Lada Niva driver hit the brakes a little too late and a little too hard causing this spectacular incident.

Lots of luck was involved here, and it is impressive how calm the pedestrian remained during and after the incident (he might even be luckier than this pedestrian who narrowly avoided being hit by a car carrier earlier in the year). The whole ordeal seemed to be over just as fast as it happened, and you can check it out in the grainy video posted below.

      Damn, can't a guy just walk around with his 2 tires?

        I bet he's just "two tired' of being a target.

          Why do people always feel the need to inject these terrible puns ... I\'m getting \"tired\" of it.

      I love the video title, "Man crossing the street drop a tire" You've got to be really bored to click on that.

      I think I would have shitted a turd the size of a tire out if that happened to me.

        If you could see the first half of the video (not shown) that's exactly where the tires came from.

      I really want to know how these Russian drivers get their cars sideways so often. What was happening in the five seconds prior to this?

      The music playing in the car makes it even funnier.

        You do know that all of this was started under the Bush administration and is widely supported by Republicans. And surveillance like this really happened when Nixon was President but hey when do facts matter?

      What a dick- the least he could do is check on the driver but instead he just picks up his stuff and walks away.

        Have you ever gotten close to getting hit? With all that adrenaline pumping? Not really the time when you're making completely sound decisions/judgements. Good armchair quarterbacking though.

        He did look back.

      How come everybody stopped looking for traffic before crossing?

        It could be one of those areas where the pedestrians have the right of way. We have some of those around here.

      He didn't even flinch.

      His attire was not even mussed or out of place after that near miss. He bounced back from calamitous event with aplomb, and was tractable enough to remain calm. I'd say his circular reasoning was along the lines of "live and let live", judging by his nonplussed attitude. This must definitely have been a good year for him.

      Judging by the Lada Niva, I am assuming that happened in mother Russia...
