“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.
