Russian President and noted absurd outdoor adventure enthusiast, Vladimir Putin, made headlines again this week when video surfaced of the political strongman catching an enormous pike fish.

Putin reportedly struggled with the allegedlly 43-pound pike for several minutes before reeling it in. Never one to pass up an opportunity for a dramatic display of power, Putin, resplendent in his camouflage jacket and hat, then planted the kiss of death upon the fish’s lips.

“Awesome person,” said Youtube commenter BoxytheSpaceDog.
