I watched the video with sound turned off and thought, "This is either staged or Russian."
I then watched it again with sound. I think it's both.
The fake punches were the first clue for me. Next was their cartoonish reaction when the excavator started smashing the car.If they beat the crap out of the guy for just not giving way, I think they would have did a lot worse to him for killing their car. I think this was staged, for what reason I have no idea, but it just seems wrong.
