(Jan. 6, 2016) – Sometimes you see something that defies explanation.

This is one of those times.

Video uploaded on YouTube shows a Russian woman setting fire to her gas tank with a lighter. It happened in a remote Siberian city called Surgut.

In the video, the woman looks at the pump then gets out a lighter and flicks it on near her car’s gas cap. To no one’s surprise, the side of the car erupts in flames. It only gets worse when she removes the nozzle, catching the side of the car on fire.

The video appeared on YouTube on Jan. 4, 2016, although the timestamp on the video says it’s from 2013.

As Derek Zoolander can attest, this could’ve been much, much worse:
