  1. I’ve seen the Vilnius Tank mayor clip before, and kinda like it. I’m most amazed that many of the news outlets that covered it didn’t acknowledge or point out to their readers/viewers that it’s obviously staged. The “owner” of the suspiciously old Mercedes doesn’t even try to act–what, did he get his uncle at the last minute? And they’re lucky the tank didn’t tip over, and launch an entirely different kind of viral video.

  2. It’s one of those clips that’s so silly and shocking that it just cracks me up. In all honesty, I wish reality were a bit closer to this video at times.
