The Russian filmmakers finish the final shoot of their version of the film “Da Titanic” of the Red Star line by throwing da “Heart of the Ocean” off the aft deck.
The new film reveals never before seen footage of Da Titanic’s epic struggles after hitting a submerged American nuclear submarine.

Having run out of pianos in the Officers' Mess, the lads borrow a tank from the Enlisted Men's games room, and launch it off the deck.

We’ve all heard the expression “drink like a fish,” but I’ve never seen them get tanked before.
