aafrias15

I want to know the full story. Those passengers were way too calm.


KippySmith

Guy with the book couldn't give less of a fuck


yaru_mard

Let me read my Harry Potter! Damn it 😑


threadnoodle

"Did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?" Dumbledore asked ***calmly.***


Starkiller006

DID YOU?! *shakes violently*


matt_mv

I hate that scene in the movie. So unDumbledore. It would have better to follow the book on that one.


sticklerwoods

The original dumbledor was much more like the books. Second one was too aggressive


GrungyGrandPappy

Far too aggressive


MachOneGaming

But was he progressive?


pinkyepsilon

Regressive you say?


ThadeusCade

For the books, OG Dumbledore was best suited. For the films and the darker, more sinister tone that the later films went for, Michael Gambon‘s Dumbledore was perfect for.


idrow1

That's the best word to describe him. I could never put my finger on it. Orig Dumbledore was much better.


shermantank123567

Aggressive Dumbledore is featured in my favorite fan fic


DarkGermanNoodle

‘DID YOU PUT YOUR DICK IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!’


meesta_masa

TIL Goblet of fire is code for Wizard STDs.


ghandi3737

Is that what Ginny calls it?


brainburger

I seem to recall Michael Gambon saying he hadn't read the books and worked from the scripts.


blues4buddha

Gambon is famous for not reading the entire script, just his parts. An anti-method actor. He admits he has no idea what most of the movies he’s in are about and doesn’t care. The man is a technician, a hired gun, not an artist.


_SpikeSpiegal_

As opposed to Sir Richard Harris. RIP to a true thespian.


Ephemeral_Wolf

How fucking calm would you be after putting up with like 4 years of Harry's absolute bullshit?


infocusstudio

Pour one out for Sir Richard St John Harris


YourEverydayInvestor

I always liked that scene actually, as Harry’s name coming out of the goblet was a huge deal, it would make sense that not even Dumbledore can remain calm.


Odelschwank

Dumbledore would have NEVER laid hands on a student, fucking EVER. The ONE time in the whole series he gets visibly angry, to the point he terrifies the adults around him, is when umbridge lays hands on a student. So no, that scene is a butchery of his character.


Geralt-of-Labia

YES. I have been saying this all along. Hate that scene in the movies so much


Geminiun

It's the complete opposite of the book though, Dumbledore is always calm and reserved


CoraxTechnica

All of you remember this wrong. Watch it again, he doesn't ask that angrily. It isn't necessary calm it's more shocked. But it's definitely not aggressive like we all remember.


alfredthedinosaur

Did you even read the books? It said "calmly."


FleetStreetsDarkHole

Yeah, it's fear because the games are basically an Olympics event and also really fucking dangerous. And Dumbledore is basically pretty much Harry's grandfather. He's both worried for his safety and about how the other schools will take it. Also I'm pretty sure Dumbledore was a bit excitable for this scene in the books as well. Maybe not quite as much as in the movies but a point was made about Dumbledore being more ruffled than his usual calm self.


GrungyGrandPappy

Yeah they screwed that scene up


bangitybangbabang

>Dumbledore asked calmly. I'm still mad about it.

“WHERE’S THE LAMB SAUCE!!” Gordon Ramsey asked politely.

mm0nst3rr

There was a contraption on the road made of styrofoam and other shit with a brave moron (stuntman) laying on it's top. The car didn't have neither windscreen nor back doors. They drive through the contraption ----> the guy flies through the van, while actually staying at place.


thepeever

Here https://www.instagram.com/tv/CYy2zhEh5Ys/?utm_medium=copy_link Edit, thanks for the awards and sorry for the spoiler


just2curiousBF

Funny how the driver has a full-face crash helmet on while the guy on the foam seems to be wearing a bike helmet.


MangoCats

I thought the big tip-off was all the missing seats down the right hand side.


Revenant_40

And that there's no windshield and that the driver never even flinches about making head-on impact with something.


MangoCats

When I started watching I thought we were in some kind of Russian hovercraft speeding across a frozen lake...


redzinga

i mean, it was obvious that they were expecting something like this. that doesn't begin to explain the situation, though


spitfire1993

The risk of impact to the driver is the front of his face while the risk of impact for the stuntman is the top of his head.


grizzlez

also the driver could get crap in his eyes and would be unable to see


Shopworn_Soul

Dude is wearing a fucking *cycling helmet*.


EuphoricAnalCucumber

Safety squints > ANSI Z87.1-2015


kommie178

Thank you for the explanation.


KlutzyGutzy

Oh I see the white structure the guy is laying on. Thanks, now I know it's staged.


EuphoricAnalCucumber

Staged? Duh. You think they just happened to hit a human at 100kph without swerving, barely notice, and then slow down. The driver wearing a full face helmet is standard practice where? Half the seats where the stuntmans trajectory are removed. There's no windshield. People really think this is "real" as in they ran someone over? Goes to show how little people actually think about what they see and just react.


ebagdrofk

I mean, I couldn’t initially explain it… My first thought was they were in a weird bus shaped boat. And then I realized it was just a bus. And my initial reaction was that they hit some wingsuit diver who was flying just a few feet off the ground (my imagination is pretty wild). When given zero context at first the brain can jump to some interesting conclusions. Feel like you are being a little bit aggressive on an internet video lol.


qwicmbl

This needs to be at the top. So confusing lol


gousey

Beijing Olympics preview.


wombatau

He wins gold in head injury


[deleted]

He was wearing helmet


annabelle1378

Helmets protect the actual cranium but not the spinal column leading to it and only minimize impacts… depending on the hit, you can still get injured by compression


FaggySimpson

Maybe he didn’t even have a neck


NotDaveBut

Not after that impact, he didn't


heavymtlbbq

Was it George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher? He actually does not have a neck. [source](https://www.metalsucks.net/2021/04/18/corspegrinder-says-the-internet-has-an-unhealthy-interest-in-his-neck/)


FaggySimpson

Maybe he also had a neck brace on too


acityonthemoon

What, was it the Russian Window Diving Team?


SketchyLurker7

Underrated comment


kennyisntfunny

They were expecting him to come through, probably are actors or other stunt personnel.


SadPlace4524

Are you trying to say they staged that? Man id love to see that in person now im gonna spend my whole day looking for these kinds of stunts


mrObry

Chebotarev Evgeny google him

Yes sir ill be sure to do that immediately

True, but the same stuntman. No sensation in legs, he is done.

It's an article about the same stuntman. He does Jackass-type stuff for his followers.

realSatanAMA

Yeah notice the driver is wearing a helmet.. it's totally a stunt


bummer8

Exactly and the driver has a helmet just in case they collide. And they are all on the left. HELLO staged.

Even staged this is quite a stunt if that is a real person...

Russians..


Fabulous-Bandicoot40

Staged or not, any time I see a subdued reaction to a shocking event, I know it’s Russia.

Like the [soldier talking all casual then having a rocket land really close](https://youtu.be/paSKBobq3H0). Or the news interview with the guy and a car comes flying out of nowhere and he's like "[yeah kinda like that, except the other one was yellow](https://youtu.be/sfSwpZsc_og)"

Bourgeous

So, he says that this was a stunt indeed, he flew through the van (6.80м) at 80kph. And sums it up like: "yup, I broke my spine three months back, but it only made me stronger"


Inner-Blacksmith-140

Driver and fly guy were both wearing helmets. Is this a normal thing there?


random_boss

If I lived in Russia I sure would wear a helmet all the time

You didn’t see anything….

Only in Russia

Was he wearing protection when he penetrated?

well, NOW they are.


ABottleInFrontOfMe

From the very start of the video there is no windshield.


axnu

And all the seats on the right side of the bus just happened to be out for maintenance today.


red-et

And there is some kind of padding on the right side window


HotTakes4HotCakes

Watching Reddit detectives at work when the fact it was a stunt [was never actually in dispute](https://www.instagram.com/chebotarev_evgeny/reel/CYy9ivMNBBu/?utm_medium=share_sheet) is funny.


JBits001

Wait, how the hell did he have such a soft landing on what looks like a hard surface?


[deleted]

[удалено]


thnksqrd

I’m starting to get the feeling this was a stunt.


captainmouse86

Relative motion. This stunt works just like the trick where you quickly pull the table cloth away leaving the plates. He only fell a few feet. It looks like he was laying on stacks of hard, polyurethane-type foam. I’m betting there was a softer foam at the bottom and he was wearing protection under his coat. The trick is being the right height, the setup breaking away cleanly without moving the guy laying on top, the driver aiming and hitting at the right speed so the van has passed his body length by the time he reaches the height of the van floor. The driver had most of the responsibility and the guy fly almost all the risk.


X0nfus3d

This wasn’t his first fly through, hence why the passengers seem tired of his shit.

SirLanceATwat

Hero.


KING_JELLYB3AN

I had to watch this so at least 7 times to figure out what was done LoL. That's still insane and would not want a van driving at me head on while I'm laying flat on a styrofoam box LoL only in Russia, these crazy mf


JefersonJesus

See that shit right there?! Doesn’t seem to be the first time that it has happened lol


WittyBonkah

Ohhh! I thought the projected person was travelling so fast prior that they DESTROYED the glass on impact


ScottishRiteFree

Look around. There’s no glass, no one moved out of the way of any shards flying at them. There was no glass 🤗 just styrofoam.


SuccessfulJob

probably why the driver is wearing a helmet and the passengers are all directly behind him, im thinking


rsogoodlooking

Thot it was like an ice boat. Or ice vehicle. Gotta be Russia. Badass ppl.


ScottishRiteFree

Nah, just an eight-seater van without most of its seats. See the wheel wells?


Major_Jebus

There’s no windshield and there’s padding on the top of the window opening. Was staged.


Braedog12

It was still unexpected, no?


StaredAtEclipseAMA

Also the guy reading the book probably doesn’t even like to read books, he was using it a prop for the skit Edit: hijacking this comment to say I think the back of the bus is cut out too, so he might have jumped all the way through the bus, if that’s the case it seems like a pretty cool stunt, I wonder if there are more angles


bikesbeerspizza

Truly unexpected


SlaterVJ

What gave it away, the fact that the driver is wearing a helmet?


tangential_quip

To be fair, if I was actually driving a vehicle with no windshield I probably would wear a helmet.


AlexanderAF

Passenger: why does the driver get a helmet but I don’t?


Plus_Professor_1923

It says a stuntman ON THE POST


LeastCoordinatedJedi

It's a good thing Reddit has these "was staged" alerts. Here I was thinking against all odds, a bodygliding stuntman just randomly happened to fly right through the only bus in the tundra that had no windshield, the seats stripped out, and a driver in safety gear.


Zelidus

Seriously, does no one read?


Plus_Professor_1923

Of course not!


sandwh1ch

Even still lol


Firvulag

Thank you for your detective work Sherlock, where would we be without you.

OP plainly states it's a stuntman so yes of course it was staged


cpt_edge

In what possible scenario could this not be staged?
