That's gotta be hard on that car's tires.

I dunno. That's kind of funny.

Why is that guy hitting his brakes? He should crawl out the driver window, crawl up right in front of the trucker's windshield and scream "HAAAAAY!!!! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!!!

Nope. All viral videos have that fake farking zoom-in zoom-out blurry focus bullshiat that gives away the fact that it's an obvious fake.

REAL candid videos never zoom and point at the floor for 60% of the video like this one.

I didn't think of it as fake at all while watching it-- and I didn't realize until you said as much, but it's for the exact reasons you mentioned.

I was sitting in traffic with my wife down by the port. traffic began to inch forward and I heard a crunch. We were being pushed into the intersection by a semi truck. I half climbed out the passenger side and waved my arm and the guy stopped. When he got out of the truck several witnesses had stopped to see that everything was OK. The first words out of the drivers mouth were 'Oh man I didn't even see you. I thought I ran over some trash'. When the cops got there he said the exact same thing. Needless to say his insurance company didn't fight anything. They paid full value for my car and let me keep it, settlement, full medical, and a year of massage therapy. Cool story bro!

gopher321: bla bla bla

I know what I typed, and I meant to type it that way because picturing a bug-eyed driver screaming HAAAAAAAY in the truck driver's face sounds funnier than the actual spelling of 'hey'.

Perhaps you should see a doctor about all that sand in your vagina.

all in all, a happy ending?

Hold on, um, one second, hold on, okay, almost there.

So, can you tell me more about the massage therapy?

I think it's fake. There should be a lot of smoke and or sparks coming from where the car is scraping along the road and there's none at all

That might be true if it were a dry road, but it's raining where this was filmed. I also believe you CAN see some sparks near the end of this clip.

There are what appear to be sparks coming from the rear tires toward the end. I still wanna call shenanigans whenever the net produces "amazing" videos...

also, why was the video so damn short? I'd be filming everything if this were happening in front of me.

Yeah, the clip would be until the car flipped or the truck stopped and the driver got his ass kicked - or put in cuffs.

Drummer: That's no accident. That's road rage.


That was my initial thought too. There's no way the tanker driver could have been oblivious to the fact he was pushing a whole damn car with his vehicle.

One good pothole would have turned this into a 'Faces Of Death' video clip.

No problems here.

I am torn on if it's fake. it was a real short video and like said above I would have filmed until resolution of the situation by getting caught up to the truck and flagging him down.
 
2010-03-17 2:43:24 AM  
But I am pressing the brake and the gas and it's still speeding up- sideways!
 
2010-03-17 3:07:52 AM  
Wow.

That was stunningly fake.
 
2010-03-17 3:09:14 AM  
that driver must have been PISSED at that car driver...
 
2010-03-17 4:46:49 AM  
Hitched a lift with a truck driver once who'd had a similar experience. Got undertaken by a car with a family in it. Pulled right in front of him and got caught sideways. He started to apply the breaks but the cab started jumping. He had to ride it out till he came to a stop or the truck would have gone over the car. Everyone was ok if a "little" bit shaken.

That said that truck didn't appear to be slowing.

I don't know about this video but I know a guy who drove dump truck and had a lady in a small car sneak in front of him at a light. He never saw her and pushed her for about a 1/4 mile until the next light and never knew she was there. She was unhurt but really freaked out.
 
2010-03-17 6:08:27 AM  
As my login name states,
"big KW". I drove many trucks through my 22 year career. The one truck I liked the most was a Kenworth W-900. The hood stands about seven feet off the ground at the furthest point from the windshield.
The hood on mine was about five or so feet from the windshield to the very front. In traffic, say waiting for a light, I could inch up on a full size Lincoln Continental and I wouldn't even know it was there, just inches from my front bumper. A Lincoln Continental is no compact car. I'm just sayin'........

I remember the first time I saw that movie. It came on at random on AMC one day and I couldn't look away.

Fantastic film.
