Russian Taxi Prank Has Gunshots, Street Racing and Romance

A lot can happen in a taxi, especially in Russia. A few weeks ago, it was reported that somebody forgot a gold-plated AK-47 inside one, but we have no recollection of anyone being shot at in a taxi.

This next prank comes from Russia and is like a scene from a Bruce Wills movie, only without the part where he saves everybody.

A couple of funny guys decided it would be interesting to see people's reactions to an unusual type of taxi service. Three different services were available, wildly different and entertaining.

The video was shot in Chelyabinsk, which is a city located just east of the Ural Mountains, on the Miass River. You probably think that you know nothing about it or its 1 million inhabitants, but that's not true. In February 2013, a meteorite falling through the sky was filmed by car dash cams and shown across the world.

Getting back to the video at hand, the first prank we see involves a female university student, who picks the romance option for the taxi ride. When the Volkswagen CC stops at an intersection, she invited to a romantic dinner in the middle of the road. As the seconds tick away, bystander are amazed by what they're seeing.

The next fellow ask for racing and gets a front-row seat to a shootout between the CC and a Nissan 350Z. That sort of thing doesn't happen in a regular taxi ride, now does it?

Finally, we have the best prank of them all, as the a guy who wants an "adventure" gets chased by mobsters with guns through an abandoned building. The fellow is genuinely terrified for his life, and understandably so, but takes the joke lightheartedly.
