In case you're wondering, no, the woman didn't actually hit the dog. This is just a commercial, and a fairly clever one after you get over the perceived canicide, that's meant to show off the desirability of Subaru's lifted Impreza wagon, the XV Crosstrek.

We'll try not to spoil it for you, because it is a fairly humorous piece, but you have to make sure to watch it from start to finish. The found-footage angle of it, which sort of presents it with the same quality as a Russian dashcam video, just adds to the video's ridiculous premise.

We aren't sure if this is an actual ad from the Russian arm of Subaru, as it seems to be posted from an independent account with only one video to its credit. Still, have a look below, and let us know what you think.

      I thought, it might be showing off the eyesight system. But apparently not.

      I don't buy it. This wasn't staged for an Ad. This is Russia. It actually happened.

        Is that a Pro-Russian or an actual Russian dog? Hard to tell these days.

      Whether its funny or not it really beside the point. This an amazingly poor context for humor from the only company that actually takes pet safety seriously. If Suburu management knew about this in advance they should be ashamed. If they didn't, they should fire the agency that created the ad.

        doesn't look like an official ad, looks just like normal youtube prank videos.

      It's Russia. Land of drunk driving and dashcam insurance scam busting. They apparently have nothing better to do.

      The bit** had it coming. Of course I'm referring to the dog. ;-)

      In Russia even the dogs are criminals.

      Apparently, the Russian Subarus are a little behind the times of the American and Japanese ones - no Eyesight system. Smarter dogs, however.
