VIDEO: There’s something called Helicopter Golf in Russia

Russians do some bizarre things, and they seem to drive like they're living in an unending action film. However, the Russians seem to have come up with a new hobby that is both fun and not life-threatening: helicopter golf.

The game is easy: Get in a helicopter, hold your altitude just 10-15 feet above the ground, grab a comically oversized mallet from someone on the ground and use it to push a large ball down a slope to a finish line. It's hard not to imagine how the blades don't push the ball down the hill more than the mallet.

And while this seems more like helicopter field hockey or helicopter polo, but the name isn't the point. This is what Russian people are doing with their time.
