The Internet is full of people attempting some bizarre stunts, some which have no meaning or explanation and are absolutely befuddling.
No one in their right mind would set an expensive Mercedes on fire. However, things were different for this Russian YouTuber.
The man, who goes by the name of Misha or Mikhail Litvin, filmed himself setting a Mercedes AMG GT63 on fire. He can be seen in the video removing at least a dozen barrels of gasoline from the boot of the car.
Mikhail Litvin has almost 5 million subscribers on YouTube. In just a couple of days after being posted online, the video of him destroying the car with fire has attracted over 8 million views.
Reports state that Mikhail Litvin encountered a host of issues with the expensive Mercedes model and claims to have sent it to a local Mercedes dealership five times but the dealer allegedly refused to fix it.
In the viral video, he is seen dousing the vehicle in the liquid, leaving a trail of gasoline on the patch of grass leading up to the Mercedes. And as he casually munches on a sausage he flings a lit lighter onto the patch of grass with gasoline, after several attempts. It catches fire and sets the care ablaze.
As the Mercedes burns, he crouches down in the foreground of the video, eating a sausage from a safe distance while his destruction goes on behind him. He attempts to get into another dilapidated car with people literally pushing it from behind to help it get moving.
While the vlogger may claim to have destroyed the car in protest, other say it’s a mere publicity stunt for followers. Any which way, burning down a Mercedes or any other car for that matter is not the wisest thing to do!
