Employers: If your next painting applicant boasts experience with striping roads in Russia, you might want to keep looking.

A new dashboard video showing miles of wandering, looping, wobbly new road lines is getting lots of looks—and  laughs—on YouTube.


Russian road painters show their stuff in a new dashcam video.

Few are laughing harder than the two motorists who captured the paint job and posted it.

The video was posted Tuesday (Nov. 11) on Facebook by Kolesiko Taiskoe, who took the footage with a dashcam. In two days, the video had been shared by more than 7,000 Facebook users and viewed more than 210,000 times.

Taiskoe and his companion came across the painting job somewhere in "the Russian countryside," ABC News reported.

"Laughed a lot," Taiskoe commented. And he and his friend do, heartily, as the video tracks a "dividing line" that runs to both sides of the road and everywhere in between.

There is no explanation, and the identity of the painters remains unknown.

But it won't be for long, if YouTube's usual viral bite holds.
