For just a tiny second, you think maybe that truck is about to take off like a rocket.

On the one hand, this is your standard Russian dash-cam video, a staple of the Internet. On the other hand, this is an exquisite piece of suspense cinema. We know from the title that the pothole is there. Over the course of 40 seconds, the tension inexorably builds. We know at some point the cars on screen will be affected by it, but we never see it. Even when it gobbles up its victims, you can't actually see the monster at work, except for little edges.
