It's frustrating when your car won't start. It's doubly frustrating when it's due to a battery issue and triply troubling when you don't have a set of jumper cables handy. Provided you own a car with a manual transmission, though, push- or pull-starting is a last-ditch tactic for when you absolutely have to get going.

Like many things in the automotive world, though, there's an art to starting a vehicle this way. You need to have a fair idea of what you're doing, unlike these gentlemen from Russia, who screw the whole thing up quite badly by attempting to use a public bus trolley as their tow-start vehicle – likely without the operator's knowledge. We're pretty sure there's a Russian Reversal joke to be made here. Take a look below at this spectacular series of unfortunate events, and let us know what you think in Comments.
