This unlucky Russian is the master of the epic tow fail. Those who have owned a manual vehicle know that a little speed and a quick pop of the clutch can get your motor started. Hooking your vehicle up to a trolley to get that speed is just asking for disaster.

This guy and his buddy are able to get the towline hooked to the trolley but I’m not sure he had the whole thing planned out. He couldn’t get into the car and it slams into a parked car just a few feet away from where he started. Now, I’m not a rocket scientist but how did he plan to get the car unhooked after he got it started?

The funny part is how fast the cops swooped in after the fail had taken place. Note to self don’t try to pop start your vehicle with a towline and a trolley car.
