Here's a fun fact: not all automotive calamities in Russia are caught on dash cam. Occasionally, someone with just a cell phone captures some gold, like this woeful attempt at unloading what appears to be a Lada.

First of all, as with most jobs, having the correct tool for the task makes the work considerably easier. In this case, we'd recommend a tow truck or a flat bed. Once you start trying to move a car with a dump truck and a couple of boards, you should know you're in for trouble.

Have a look below for this short-and-sweet video, and then hop into Comments and let us know if you can think of a more bone-headed way of getting a car onto the ground.

      If Putin were there he would have caught it.

        And Obama would be in the background squealing like a little girl.

      I'd like to think they were all under the impression that the beams were in fact steel and simply painted to look like wood....but I can't

      How did they even think this was good idea?

      That was very predictable.

      I count at least 7 guys present. Not one of them questioned the strength of the boards expected to bear the entire load of a car?

        Seven complete idiots all of whom, presumably, are fully breeding capable. This species is doomed.

        Some might have been following the others around, just for entertainment's sake.

      didn't one of the reality shows, fast and loud, (gas monkey garage or whatever) try lifting a rusty old E-jag with a forklift and it rolled off? They didn't even work on it…sold it to some Brit for a $2K profit on a $2500 barn find…

        That's the difference between old British and old Russian cars right there. Old British cars, despite more often than not being complete and utter piles of ****, will always find a home, no matter what shape they're in.

      How did they even get it ON the truck? And why not just do the opposite of that??

        You know that's a pretty good question. Hoe the hell did they get it up there in the first place?

          It is Russia. Probably 4 bears on unicycles did it.
