Russia checking in with one of a horrific video. Viewer discretion is advised.
Now that we got that out of the way, lets get to the reason as to WHY this man was climbing up an icy, tall-ass pole in nothing but boxers in freezing temps.
In Russia, to signify the end of winter, a folk festival is held.
One of the activities is to climb up a pole and reach a bucket at the top.
This man made it to the top, but fell on his way down. And as you'll see, there is NOTHING underneath.
He reportedly fractured his ribs and scapula and also underwent a brain scan, but thankfully it came back negative.
