Russian Car Explosion Video

And you think your commute is weird.

Russian motorists on Moscow's busy Kashira Highway tried not to notice the burning car by the side of the road and just drove on by without incident. But then the driver of a white Chevy passing by learned firsthand the meaning of "bad timing."

As the vehicle passed, the burning car exploded in a massive fireball that could have been rigged on a Hollywood sound stage.

Although the scene reminded some of the explosion-packed films of Michael Bay, director of "Transformers," the scene was all too real.

The owner of the blazing vehicle apparently tried to put the fire out with an extinguisher but failed to do so. It took firefighters 15 minutes to put out the fire.

Amazingly, no one was injured.
