For one shining moment, he was a kid again (like when the USSR was super powerful).

This video is a perfect metaphor for world events right now.

On the one hand, this is a funny clip captured by a Russian dash cam of an adult male thinking he is a child and then paying the price in embarrassment. On the other, this video should be taught in International Relations 101.

I'm not trying to stoke the flames of war, here, but we all see how this guy is the physical embodiment of Russian foreign policy, right? He's not the biggest guy on the planet, but he's still really big and too confident to confront without starting a fight. That supermarket is like the Russian homeland, where he can ban gay foods and do pretty much whatever he wants, and the parking lot is the Ukraine, which he still sees as part of the supermarket. The cart is the current political unrest, and his huge gut that he leans on the cart represents the combat materiel (like SA-11 anti-aircraft missiles) that Russia has recklessly introduced into an already-unstable situation.
