Two teenagers were stopped by police officers yesterday after attempting to sail a plastic boat off the coast of St. Petersburg, Russia. Dubbed the "Gucci Boat", the tiny vessel was built from 300 bottles and spray foam. The word "Gucci", along with the iconic red and green stripe design, was spray painted on all sides.

Unfortunately, the teens' Gucci journey was cut short when rescue services had to tow the boat to shore. Police released the boys after reminding them that they are not allowed to swim without adult supervision.

“What if you drowned?” one of the officers asked after the rescue. Clearly unamused by their trip cut short, the teens responded “we know how to swim.”
