The latest video to go viral on YouTube features a not so bright Russian soldier who learns a painful lesson after he catches a fast-moving land crab, and then holds the arthropod too close to his face.
The video is making the rounds on the Internet, scoring over 100,000 views in 48 hours, since it was first posted by MrIceBreakr on his YouTube channel. MrIceBreakr lists his home country as the United States.
The video offers no description of where it was recorded or who the unlucky man is that suffers the painful pinch from the angry crab's claw. The video begins by showing shows dozens of the speedy crabs, moving sideways across a road, while being chased with a cam by the curious men. A car horn is heard in the background and an automobile is seen passing by.
The cameraman can be heard talking to the soldier in the beret, who appears to be quite taken with his captive crab. He becomes a little reckless with the crab, who manages to get a grip on the soldier's nose with his sharp claw.
A look through the comments will show viewers say the men are speaking Russian. A Russian translation provided by Sonex1542 reads: "Translated: "He's gonna grab your nose... "Dude was like.. "oh my nose, really my nose....CLAMP.. it hurts, it the claw" What a dumb sh**."
Crabs can be found in the ocean, fresh water, and on land. They typical walk sideways, but some are known to walk backwards. Wikipedia notes the aggressive "crabs are are mostly active animals with complex behaviour patterns. They can communicate by drumming or waving their pincers."
