    Obligatory: In soviet Russia, you don't collapse on vodka, vodka collapses on you.

    Just shows you how much the consumer is being ripped off doesnt it. Imagine how much all that would cost from Tesco. :D

    I guess he never took the Staplerfahrer Klaus forklift safety training video. (Warning: Graphic though obviously cheesy violence)

    Well, Klaus might be a hottie with a very fetching yellow helmet, but he is not very clever.
    There's material in here for a few films… Forklift… II… III… IV

    If you look closely you can see a Demi running in to save the alcohol.

    i work in a warehouse, and even though we don't have a forklift - seeing the shelves come crashing down like that make me worry sometimes that it could happen to our units too. granted they're not holding vodka or anything nearly as heavy for the most part, its still worrisome at times.

    it is a pretty crazy video though. :D

    I work with forklifts almost every day and have to coach many inexperienced drivers. My golden rule for them is "I dont care how fast you go or how slow you go, if you spill it you pick it up"

    This guy has alot of picking up to do

    Call me crazy, as I'm not an engineer or anything, but...

    Hitting a single support of a shelving unit like that should not cause that kind of destruction. If anything, a few shelves should have fallen. But the shelf on the right collapsing just from the impact of the stuff from the other side? That is crazy. Seems like this shelving system wasn't quite up to snuff.
