YouTuber Shiey is an urban explorer—armed with a head-mounted camera and a flashlight, he ventures into abandoned or unoccupied locations to explore the dark underbelly of city life most of us never even think about. It's an exciting, dangerous, and mostly illegal hobby that has netted his channel over 87,000 subscribers.

His latest video, however, is going viral in a much bigger way, because it's the most insane. While exploring a working factory in Russia, he found a discreet metal gate in a concrete block, and decided to venture into the creepy network of narrow tunnels leading down from it. When he got to the bottom, he found something straight out of a post-apocalyptic movie.


Shiey's description reads:

Seemed abandoned, but it had electricity and ventilation, so...

While walking through the territory of a factory, located in the industrial area of the city, I noticed a weird concrete block with a metal gate on the side of it. I opened it and a latter [sic] climb later I was in a dark, small tunnel leading to an underground bomb shelter/safe house.


Shiey's video was posted to Reddit, where it's blowing up. It's not hard to see why—urban exploration is a fantasy for many city dwellers too nervous to try it for themselves. If you're one of these types, we feel obligated to mention that you should NEVER TRY this yourself. It's very illegal, extremely dangerous, and overall just dumb.

Now let's watch the video again.
