YAKUTSK CITY, Russia, Aug. 5 (UPI) — A champagne bottle had its revenge at a Russian monument when the dislodging of its cork sent it flying back into the body of the man who threw it.
The YouTube video, uploaded this week, features slow-motion footage of the man hurling the unopened champagne bottle at the monument, which another YouTube user commented appears to be in Yakutsk City.
The bottle strikes the concrete monument cork-first, causing the pressurized liquid to push the bottle back toward the man.
The projectile shoots straight toward the man, who appears to be struck in the hip by the bottle.
The video ends with the man giving the bottle an incredulous look while bystanders share a laugh.
