Russian Driver Losing Bumper in Parking Fail Looks like He’s Shaving His Beard

Have you ever wondered what the automotive equivalent of shaving your beard is? Sure, this has all the chances in the world to be one of those questions nobody asked. But it only means we’ve got an answer for you.

We’ll be taking you all the way to Russia to shed some light on this matter. However, this isn’t the dashcam footage we’ve learned to associate with Russian driving maneuvers. Instead we are dealing with CCTV footage, as the story takes place in a parking lot.

It all revolves around a Daihatsu driver who was supposed to make a simple parking exit. You know, the kind you could always be asked to perform while taking your driving test.

Instead of maneuvering his Daihatsu Sirion out of the parking spot and driving away, the guy shaves off the front apron, using the car next to him in the process. Sure, he triggers the alarm of the stationary vehicle, but this doesn’t seem to bother the man.

He simply steps out of the car, offers the fallen bumper a shotgun ride and drives away. However, anybody that’s tried to fit a bumper inside a car will tell you that you need a bit of time to make it fit in the cabin.

Since this guy was making a run for it, he didn’t have that time. So he chose to leave the passenger’s door open in order to allow the bumper to accompany him throughout his journey.

This meant that his car suddenly went from pint-sized to Humvee-scale, at least in terms of width. So did he adjust his driving? Nope, he simply touched another car (at least that’s what the footage seems to show) before figuring out the door needs to be at least half closed. Oh, and he used no shaving cream throughout the process.
