I Needed That: Compilation Of Inspirational Videos Caught By Russian Dashboard Cameras

russian-dashcam-hope.jpg

In these trying times we live in, I know it can be hard to imagine any hope for humanity that doesn't involve blasting off into space and just starting over. But to remind us all the world isn't doomed just yet, here's a compilation video of positive, inspirational videos caught by Russian dashboard cams. There are people stopping and waiting for animals, drivers helping push each other's cars out of the snow, and a whole bunch of people jumping out of their cars to help old ladies cross the street. I really encourage you all to take the five minutes out of your day to watch it. So the next time you're wishing the world would just burn after reading some piece of depression in the news, remember: in Russia, right now -- at this exact moment -- someone's getting out of their car to make sure somebody's grandma gets safely across the street.

Hit the jump for the video, you really should watch it.

Thanks to Michael, who agrees good Samaritans are the best kind of Samaritans.

    I'd love to see a U.S. version of this.

    Too bad that even if things in our lives are easier and better for us than those less fortunate, we don't even have the good cheer to spread it around a little and give up 1 minute of our day to someone who has less vision, less eyesight, and doesn't have the opportunity to enjoy the things we can see.

    Why assume everyone around you is a complete jerk just because you don't witness their moments of kindness with your own two eyes? Maybe it's just because I live in Texas or something (I'm Australian so it's not about state pride, here) but I bet if everyone had cameras on their cars here in the US, we'd be able to make a pretty nice compilation too. Every single nation has its own populace of kindness and of cruelty.

    Another possible explanation for there not being so many grannies being helped across roads here, is because we ARE a little better off, economically speaking. A lot of "our" grannies can afford cars of their own, so instead of being helped across roads, they're taking too long to change lanes, or driving too slow. Who can say they've never ever gotten mad at an old person's driving?

    BTW I'm not aiming this directly at you, Rod R, yours just happened to be the one I pressed reply to ^_^;

    I really would like to see a version of this made in the good 'ol USA. Really. I mean, if there are enough dashboard cameras in Russia to capture so much good-samaritanism to make a 5:34 minute video, why then, there must be twice as many here, what with us being so much better off and all. We should be able to put together ten minutes worth at least. and John Williams can score it FFS.

    why are there so many grandmas in need of assistance crossing in russia?

  • Rod R

    They don't have the ability to work now, and when they did work, their money went towards a socialist support system. This is somewhat like what our lives will be here in the US for those of us working now when social security won't be around to support us later in life and there is no possible way to earn the money through retirement investment since interest rates on investments produce pocket change due to the stifled economy (caused by the leeching of our socialist support system in place today)
