This news is from Russia. A man overtakes a minibus. Then he stops. The minibus must stop, too. The men inside it do not like this. They are also dressed as Mickey Mouse and Sponge Bob.

They get out of their minibus. They beat up the motorist. The incident is filmed on camera. The video is on the internet. It is very popular.

Difficult words: overtake (to go faster than the car in front of you and get in front of it), beat up (hit again and again), motorist (person who drives a car).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

People who filmed the incident can be heard laughing in the video. Do you think it was funny?
