“Pure joy.”

That’s what some on Reddit are saying this little boy experienced in a heavily cushioned car seat on a ride with his dad in an exhilarating driftcar.

The dad, Toxa Avdeev, wrote (via Google translate) that these were the “expressions of my 3-year-old son during a workout” in his manual transmission¬†Subaru Legacy B4.

The toddler might have sported a somewhat indifferent reaction at first, but the moment his dad sped up, it quickly changed to one of excitement and perhaps a little fear.

In tune with squealing tires, the boy giggled and yelled.

When it’s all over, the boy again resumed his nonchalant¬†expression.

Take a look at his adorable reaction to the ride:

Some might worry about the safety of taking a toddler on such a ride, but Redditors have pointed out that his car seat is “roll-safe.”

The original video posted by the father was uploaded in Nov. 2013, but it’s getting viral play now after making it to the Russian ¬†video site VK and then to Reddit.
