I always imagined that 'ballards' were what Eddie Izzard had.

I own a 48' trailer. This video is one of my recurring nightmares.

This is one of those situations when you can't help hoping that alcohol was involved.

/which is more dangerous: a drunk driver or a sober idiot driver?

Also in the comments- this video.  I have to say, I'm not sure any of the box truck crashes are remotely survivable for the driver.  The big U-shaped bollard at 1:48 is just instakill

How you know you're old - you know how Optimus died every time, you know who voiced Megatron, and you had the friggen toys.

Bonus oldage - you know the Strawberry Shortcake song by memory.

Not that one, the original!

I didn't even know there was such a video game.  Now, if you asked me to recite the poem from the pirate loader on the C=64's Great Gianna Sisters... every word of it.  And I can still hear the music if I think about it.

That wouldn't have happened if the bollards were British...

Gotta give a big thumbs-up to the guys who put in those bollards. Scraped the paint a bit, but overall they were in better shape than the truck.

You're old if you were doubly-traumatized by Optimus Prime not only dying, but then returning as a zombie to die again.

Can't believe it happened again. Wonder if it was the same driver.

That should be required viewing for any SFX guy working on a superhero movie where the superhero stops a truck by just standing there.

And dying like an even bigger boss the second time.
