What happens in Russia gets recorded on a dash - cam, and then it goes viral.

A dash cam video was published on YouTube a few days ago and has quickly made its rounds of the Internet. It seems a man was the victim of an assault by a gang of cartoon characters.

Although the video clip starts off as what seems like a harmless joke, it quickly turns violent when road rage strikes and the man is jumped by Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob, Dumbo, and Scrat.

Unfortunately for the victim of the assault, Mickey and his gang of miscreants weren't pulling any punches.

As for Russia's deal with dash cams, the basic logic behind the fad is to help stop any false accusations if any unfortunate event were to happen, as well as, protect the driver. Much like a police car, the camera is there to record everything that happens so there can be no dispute as to the truth behind an incident.

This comes in handy in instances of an accident for example, or if a driver were to receive an unnecessary ticket.

Marina Galperina wrote a story for Animal, in which she helps to explain problems that Russian drivers face every day.

"The conditions of Russian roads are perilous, with insane gridlock in cities and gigantic ditches, endless swamps and severe wintry emptiness on the backroads and highways." Says Galperina.

She goes on,"Then there are large, lawless areas you don't just ride into, the police with a penchant for extortion and deeply frustrated drivers who want to smash your face."

Sounds like Russia is a bit like the Wild West!

I guess the whole idea is to stop things like this from happening.
