This Gives a Whole New Meaning to 'Magic Carpet Ride'

It seems that whenever winter comes, people always seem to find something they are able to slide on. At first they try a small hill, and discover that they do not have enough momentum to pick up enough speed, so they begin to think outside the box.
The last resort is to tie up whatever you found and would like to slide, to the back of a moving vehicle and then go for a ride. It is by no means a good idea, and even something as large and sold as a boat can be dangerous.

However, these people from Ukraine clearly know what they`re doing. They seem to have tied what appears to be a carpet, to the back of a Lada Niva 4x4, which is driven slowly, with the hazard lights flashing. Of course it's dangerous, and we do not condone it and would never recommend it, but it still looks like fun, and it is an interesting way to pass the afternoon.

We do have one objection, though, and that is the road chosen to do the deed. A more secluded stretch of road, with less traffic would have been preferable - for safety reasons, of course.
