You've got to love dash cam video footage out of Russia.

The European country is a world heavyweight in supplying video footage of the unlikeliest of road accidents and the latest - admittedly with a wonky date - fits that realm perfectly.

The latest clip, posted on YouTube yesterday, shows a vehicle smashing into a pair of cows much more interested in each other than approaching traffic.

The driver, who appears mesmerised by what he sees, seems to forget to brake, before breaking up the romantic interlude with the front his car.

While the animals appear to depart the scene uninjured, the same can not be said for the vehicle which has a smashed windscreen and crumpled front while the driver is justy lucky neither animal ended up in his lap.
