Aggressive Mickey Mouse – level 2

16-09-2014 15:00

A motorist cut off a minibus in the middle of the road in Russia. He probably wasn’t expecting any serious consequences.

Men dressed as Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob and others got out of the minibus and beat up the motorist.

A camera caught the incident and people uploaded it to the internet. The video has become very popular.

Difficult words: motorist (driver of a car), cut off (get in front of somebody and stop close in front of them), consequences (something bad which happens after you do something).

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?
