You can’t afford a trip to the seaside in the hot summer weather – so you make your own swimming pool at home.
That’s what these Russian teenagers did yesterday, creating a fully-functioning water park in the living room of their flat in the city of Oryol.
With temperatures reaching an uncomfortable 34C outside, the boys used only ‘polyethylene film and tape’ to transform their carpeted lounge into a swimming pool several feet deep.
The images of the boys went viral after being posted on various Russian-language social media websites last night.
They are seeing swimming together, posing with their thumbs up and diving beneath the water, while a thin layer of film covers their furniture and radiators.
