The thing about ISIS is that for every time they do something absolutely horrific like say, massacre 50 people in the streets of Paris before gunning down another 80 in a concert hall, or blowing up a passenger jet, or say, drowning “confessed spies” in a cage, they do something completely ridiculous.
It's a dichotomy that makes the whole thing feel kind of surreal at times.
Case in point, around the same time the group released a clip of a captured SAA soldier being run over by a tank, they also released a video of themselves making flying landmines out of condoms which they apparently thought could be used to create a kind of sky minefield that would deter Russian fighter jets.
Then, for those who watched the video the militants released earlier this week threatening to attack Washington, you might have noticed that in the scenes with the soldiers standing in front of the armored truck, the guy on the right falls asleep standing up at least four separate times as the man in the center delivers an impassioned speech.
Well, in the true spirit of ISIS buffoonery, we present the following classic video which appears to depict ISIS militants attempting to shoot down a Russian fighter jet using only a truck-mounted machine gun and a spotter who uses his thumbs to gauge the distance.
But perhaps the best part is the narrator. Or actually, the captions which frame the entire spectacle as though it were a terrorist episode of Jackass.
