A YouTuber has stunned viewers after setting a Mercedes on fire in the middle of an empty field, having shared footage of the dangerous stunt online.
The Russian star, ЛИТВИН - who goes by the name of Misha - filmed himself setting a Mercedes AMG GT63 on fire, seen in the video removing at least a dozen barrels of gasoline from the boot of the car.
He then goes on to douse the vehicle in the liquid, leaving a trail of gasoline on the patch of grass leading up to the Mercedes.
He even stops to cheekily pour the rest of the fuel onto a grill in order to cook some sausages - because burning cars is hungry work, clearly.
As he munched on a sausage, Misha then throws a lighter onto the gasoline trail he'd poured onto the grass - although at first it doesn't light, much to his disappointment.
After several attempts it eventually works, with the blaze catching Misha by surprise as the grass suddenly ignites as he jumps out of the way.
It only takes a matter of seconds for the fire to reach the car, travelling along the specially-crafted fuel trail before getting to the target - which suddenly goes up in flames, with smoke billowing into the sky.
As the Mercedes burns, Mischa crouches down in the foreground of the video, eating a sausage from a safe distance while his destruction goes on behind him.
Later in the clip, he attempts to get into another car - this one an old banger - but is frustrated when it won't start, having to rope in two mates to help get him moving.
Is it a fable in shunning capitalistic goods? Is Misha just in search of a simpler life? Or, perhaps more likely, does he just like burning things for YouTube videos?
Many viewers were shocked by Misha's bizarre and dangerous stunt, with one person commenting: "American bloggers smash iPhones - Russian bloggers burn Mercedes."
Another added: "Goosebumps are on my skin! Rest in peace, Shark..."
A third wrote: "I fry a kebab, Misha fries a Mercedes..."
It probably goes without saying, but if you've got a spare Mercedes lying around, you probably shouldn't try this one at home - although you can cook some sausages and eat them... That bit's totally fine.
