Russians throw a risky barbecue while floating on a huge chunk of ice

We can safely file this video under “Do Not Try This At Home,” but it sure does look like a fun afternoon.

A group of Russian guys decided to save money on a raft, and create their own by separating a massive chunk of ice and floating down the river.

During their journey, they document the fun antics, and even manage to set up a low-level tightrope to play with. (Readers, if you have an idea of how they pulled off this stunt, please let us know in the comments!)

In all seriousness, this situation could have had a much graver outcome. Even with a boat, fishing multiple people out of the water before they drowned would have been a difficult task, had the ice broken up.
