The answer is yes, this is for real. Teenagers in Russia decided to turn their living room into a swimming pool using plastic sheeting, the end result is marvelous... and pretty insane. Their names have not been disclosed, and its just as well. If the parents found out about this stunt imagine how mad they would be.
The boys live in the Oryol region of western Russia. Temperatures can regularly exceed 30C during the summer. A heatwave this month has even caused Russia's football season to be delayed, so can you really blame the lads for coming up with this awesome DIY pool.
We just hope that the pool is well away from the plugs, and we would also love to know if it can be a heated pool because of the radiator? hmmmm.
