Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere.  I’ll let the video speak for itself.

Eff yeah! I love it. Thanks for posting. Kept hoping it would show a Russian skull cleaved by a shovel, but I guess that isn't PC, even for Central/Eastern Europe.

Or as a toilet.  With some paper, it apparently can sling crap a good distance, l was once told.

That was an impressive commercial... makes our recent efforts pale in comparison.

Really nice video. Maybe for context, I'm pretty sure that this particular soliloquy is straight from Viktor Suvorov's book Spetznaz. Chapter 1 or 5. I can't quite remember. I'm pretty sure this is a fairly good dig (get it?) at the Russians. This particular model shovel was/is? Featured pretty heavily in soviet conscript training.
