It's the final countdown for this heavy-duty Russian crane

"The Final Countdown" was the first single to hit the airwaves from the album of the same name, released in 1986 by the Swedish band Europe. If the name isn't ringing a bell, we can practically guarantee that all you need to do is hear the first few opening chords of the song and you'll instantly recognize it...

And speaking of final countdowns, the song is the perfect backdrop to the video you'll see after the break. As much as we'd love to know what the workers (especially the crane operator) may be saying as all hell breaks loose (quite literally), we probably wouldn't understand it anyway, considering it apparently took place in Russia.

Anyway, watch the mayhem unfold for yourself in the video after the break.
