Someone please overlay the audio of Wham's Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go onto that.
I've been blown away by the shows of resistance coming out of Ukraine, especially as it's become painfully clear that Russia has no problem targeting civilians, so it's amazing to see moments like the one above. Just seven or so fearless fellas commandeering a Russian tank, living in the moment, genuinely fucking pumped. The bonus for me was that they look like dads you'd see around the neighborhood, putterin' in the yard. I like to imagine the Home Depot music played beforehand as they stood around discussing how much horsepower this thing probably has. Did they Rock-Paper-Scissors for who got to drive? Did they complain about poor gas mileage?
This comes on the heels of a re-viral influencer "how-to" video about how to get your own abandoned Russian tank going.
And the Ukrainian Tax Agency declaring that citizens who capture tanks & other enemy equipment won't have to declare their haul as income.
Which is handy, because those gents in the first video aren't the only ones enjoying a new (old) tank.
We'll have a new episode of ZeroBlog30 out on Friday with the latest updates, and I hope to have news of many more stolen tanks.
