The cameraman sounded like a dickish Seth Rogan.

The car was just upset that Christine broke up with him

so... Seth Rogan?

Also, 7 minutes of screaming at computer - just jump in!!! Cops are clearly too 'not in my job description' to do it.

I just wanted to see the door fall off.

This video left more questions than answers for me.

Who is the mystery guy who appears from off screen at about the 30 second mark and grabs a bit of the car that's fallen off? He doesn't seem to be a cop. He puts the bit down by the curb, talks to the cops and then walks off again. Why would someone pick up a bit of a car that's spinning round in circles?

Who is the mystery guy who finally dives into the vehicle to stop it? Again, doesn't seem to be a cop, but I wouldn't have thought they'd have let a civilian get involved, even if it was there car. I was expecting them to be all 'Sir! Stand back sir! We have the situation under control!'

How'd the car get stuck that way by accident? How could the wheels stay locked on full turn like that for all that while? I'd have thought the wheels would have turned back into center position after a while.

Also, why the hell did I watch the whole thing!?

I saw a 1966 Olds Vista Cruiser doing this in a bank parking lot. It lasted for about 4 minutes. He kept getting closer to a Fotomat. He was finally able to grab the roof rack and get in it.

I'm guessing the mystery guy is a fire chief/supervisor, he comes out of the fire department SUV at around 5:52.

7 minutes of what, a copied headline?

Most cars tend to straighten going forward, increase turning when in reverse. Have you never gone around a corner in reverse?

OK, so not only did I sit through the whole thing, I missed the answer to one of my own questions. I need to learn to pay more attention. I blame the intarwebs for my short attention span. Damn boobies!
 
2012-11-15 01:05:06 PM
Those old Ford C4 automatics had a tendency to slip out of park and into reverse.
 
2012-11-15 01:15:12 PM
Okay, so the civilian in the red sweater placed himself in danger. Why didn't one of those cops tase his ass so he wouldn't get hurt?

It's been years since I drove a car and I honestly can't remember the last time I reversed around a corner. Now that you've explained it though, it makes a lot more sense as to what was happening. I appreciate the explanation (and also that you didn't just totally snark me).
 
2012-11-15 01:49:25 PM
I wonder how many times that door would have to get whacked before it came off.
 
2012-11-15 02:10:55 PM
I'm most amused by this video on the same site.
 
2012-11-15 03:13:23 PM
They should have called Bruce Wills ... if he can get out, I'm sure he could get back in.
 
2012-11-15 04:08:26 PM
Okay, where are all the old car guys to say what kind of car that is?

I would love that car in all black with a high shine wax job.

Yes, I'm old, learned to drive in a 68 Chevelle with a stick.

I didn't really explain so much as observe a phenomenon. My curiosity was piqued so I had to look it up.

Mesmerizing.
 
2012-11-15 05:43:55 PM
DNWTFVF7M, but all you would have to do would be get on the inside/non open door side of the car and get in.

Why do people refer to cops as if they're not civilians as well?

ci·vil·ian [si-vil-yuhn]
noun
1. a person who is not on active duty with a military, naval, police, or fire fighting organization.

Could possibly be why....

Huh. Well I guess dictionary.com and I are going to have to agree to disagree on their rather loose definition then. Firefighters too? Really? They do great things sure, but it sounds like any org that suits people up and tells them to do brave things gets into the ring. Next you'll be seeing the overnight staff at macdonalds calling 'everyone else' civies.

Those things were built tough. I'm surprised the door hung on for that long.

also, what about just shooting out the back wheels?

and it's low speed, i bet a cop could get in, as other people said.

it looked like it was circling closer and closer to that building. wouldn't they want to stop it before it got too close and damaged things or people?
 
2012-11-15 09:36:01 PM
lol now that you guys mention it, he DOES sound exactly like Seth Rogan.
 
2012-11-15 09:38:51 PM
ok, watching the rest of the video answered my questions.

but why would he jump thru the open window instead of just going in thru the OPEN DOOR ?
 
2012-11-15 09:46:20 PM
Was that NASCAR?
 
2012-11-15 09:58:00 PM
Used to do this for fun and called it 'redneck carnival ride'.

Trying to get in the open door is dangerous, because if you slip, the door will whack you, and the car will run you over. Going in the other side is pretty safe, because the car is turning away from you.

I was expecting the car to run around backward in circles till it ran out of gas, just like me in real life. And yes, I skipped the video forward a few times, unlike life.

Maybe somebody should shoot out my "back tires."

Looks like like a mid 70's Mercury Cougar to me or similar Ford product. Im not real sure though.

At my job, we often, jokingly, refer to our end customers as "Civilians". Granted, it's a brewery. I guess, via the termonlogy, we should refer to Home-brewers as volunteers, as in a volunteer fire department.
