Russia is constantly producing the kind of viral videos that makes you wonder if the country exists in an alternate universe where critical thinking is shunned in favor of brashness and sheer stupidity.
This is one of those videos.
There are a few ways to see if a bulletproof helmet is really bulletproof, but having someone else put it on before shooting that person in the head is probably one of the last strategies you want to pick.
I can't verify this video is 100 percent authentic, and it definitely doesn't help that the clip is somehow grainier than the videos I shot on my flip phone in middle school.
I sincerely hope this was all a setup, but Russia seems like the kind of place where this is what you do when you're bored on the weekend.
