In a weird incident, Russian YouTuber Mikhail Litvin did a strange protest by burning his expensive Mercedes Benz as a protest against the car making company. He was annoyed with the service of the German car manufacturer
Mikhail Litvin, who has more than 4.97 million subscribers on YOuTube set his luxury vehicle on fire in the middle of an empty field after facing constant issues with it.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S, worth 13 million rubles (Rs 1.2 crore), reportedly broke down several times after he purchased it from an official dealership in May last year. Litvin sent the car to the dealer five times, but the repairs didn’t help.
The car spent over 40 days in service, according to a local media report. After the most recent breakdown, the dealership stopped responding to him.
He posted a video of himself pouring fuel and burning his Mercedes in the middle of an empty field.
“I thought for a long time what to do with my Shark after the conflict with Mercedes … In my opinion, the idea is FIRE! That’s all … The end … I’m not happy,” Litvin wrote while sharing the video.
The video, which was posted on YouTube, has been viewed by more than 11.5 million viewers in a short span of time.
