Coubs of the week: How to be a real man

A web service called Coub, created by Russian IT developers Anton and Igor Gladkoborodov, helps to create loop videos up to 10 seconds long with a soundtrack. It allows old and new videos to be seen from a new angle and to find a new meaning in it. Once a week, RBTH selects the best coubs that depict Russian reality from a different perspective.

On the 23rd of February Russia celebrates Defender of the Fatherland Day. Mostly women congratulate men who are currently serving in the Armed Forces or have already fulfilled their duty to the country. But every man deserves a gift on this day, since anyone can be a hero at least for a day. Here are some Coubs to help you see why:

A real man is always ready to protect a defenseless lady.

He's got the power in any circumstances.

Though sometimes his force works against him.

But strength isn't everything. Agility and resourcefulness can be very useful. For example, when you don't have enough money to pay for a ticket.

Finally, a real man is simply fearless.

And you can't kill him... almost.

Or drown him… unless he does it himself...
