The Russian dash cam video is back in a big way. The second half of 2013 didn’t feature as much prominent car-mounted hilarity as the past couple of years, and Russia as an entity went from being seen as a WTF Viral Video Clearinghouse to an autocratic bully with a human rights issue.

But it feels good to laugh again. Two days before New Year’s Eve, these two drivers engaged in a car chase with one of the more bizarre ends, even for Russia. There’s a knife, there’s a shovel, and there’s one man’s decision to get on the roof of an icy car while holding a knife.

Thanks Metro UK for this — skip to 3 mins for the goods:

So, they just get bored? Gotta love the dude who follows all the action just to film it on his dash cam. YouTube, and the world, thanks you.

And surely someone has played Knifey Spooney before …
