Arturas Zuokas, mayor of Lithuanian capital Vilnius, recently released a video in which he used a tank to crush an illegally parked Mercedes Benz, several international news sites reported on Tuesday, August 2, 2011.

The video, which was uploaded on August 1, 2011, has been viewed more than 1 million times already in Youtube. In the video, Zuokas was shown sitting atop a camouflaged tank which crushed a blue Mercedes Benz parked in the bicycle lane.

“The aim is to draw attention to how we behave in our city and encourage people to report road-traffic offences to the police,” the Vilnius mayor was quoted as saying.

The video was obviously a publicity stunt. The car was reportedly bought secondhand specially for the stunt.
