evgeny-kuznetsov-ovechkin-driving

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin let Evgeny Kuznetsov (whom I’m praying has a license) drive the $500,000 Ovi Mobile to Verizon Center today. The Russian machine blasted Finnebassen’s electronica hit What You Do and then shot an Instagram video while driving.

Kids, don’t try this at home. Actually, Ovi, you probably shouldn’t do this either.

To recap once more for those who are too stunned to comprehend what you just saw, Ovi, the passenger, is blasting Norweigian electronic music, making derpy faces, and shoving a camera into Evgeny Kuznetsov’s face while driving.

So about Ovi’s driving habits: he sometimes doesn’t wear seat belts, he thinks there should be no speed limit, he really likes Drake, and he has scared the bejeezus out of Mikhail Grabovski.

    The only thing more Russian would be if you could see a dashboard camera in the video

  • Yo8

    With that scary icy road experience you would have expect him to be more careful…

    You guys need to make masks from that Oviface.

    A few years back coming home from a caps win, we were stuck in caps traffic on constitution, when none other than Ovie pulls up next to us in his benzo. We had the windows down and were hanging out them waving and cheering. He made some faces at us smiling and laughing at us being ridiculous. The light turned green and he floored it. Probably going 90+ over the bridge out of the district. All I could think of is if he wrecked, we’d have to move because we would be getting death threats. Haha.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Kuznetsov was the driver? Ovi’s car has the steering wheel on the right side of the car?

    I was just going off what Ovi said

  • slay75

    A night at the Roxbury. Ovi & Kuznetsov reboot.

  • Chris Cerullo

    Kuzya also glances at the road like 4 times. I guess it is on that side.

  • Austin Baird

    I’ve seen him driving his Mercedes through DC as well. Confirmed for driving like a maniac

  • J

    Yeah, I saw the Instagram pic too. Still confused me. Haha.

  • pixiestix

    i think the vid is mirror view. notice the cars driving in the other direction on the “left” side of the video. also ovi’s missing tooth seems to be on the wrong side too

  • Owen Johnson

    But he does sit in traffic like the rest of us mere mortals

    Damn, that’s a good point! I knew I wasn’t crazy!

  • will

    Looking at the traffic going in the opposite direction on the other side of the road (visible through the rear window), it appears as though this image is flipped/mirrored. In other words, steering wheel on left side per usual in US and Russia, with Kuzya driving.

    The internet once again solves another mystery.

  • Lawrence

    I think Kuz might be wondering if he was wrong calling Ovi a “grown man”.

  • themav80

    That face will haunt my dreams.

  • araporrada21

    Hahahahhahaha reminds me of my brother Pauly who’s name is wait for it… Павел Кузнецов. I remember when we were in high school driving in a not so expensive e30 blasting his euro tunes. Man do I miss those times.

  • Manda

    Ovi must be driving or it is right hand steering, because their seatbelts are on the “normal” sides. My brain can’t handle this.

  • Fait

    I said the same thing, then my husband pointed out Ovi’s tooth gap. It’s on the wrong side here. Looks like maybe the video is flipped.

  • PleaseKillMe

    Ovi has always been known as an insane driver.

  • Rhino40

    Yes, but what about the crazy-eye one from right before he pied one of the rookies (Wilson?)

  • Kim Peacock

    He also let Kuzy drive it home from Kettler on Saturday- Kuzy stalled out at the top of the ramp when leaving

  • Chris

    They are in Kuzis new S63 AMG. Saw the guy that does Ovis cars pick it up from the dealer the other day.

  • fatima

    Seriously!! Ovi can be hilarious sometimes

  • fatima

    Yes def
