Tough Guy Tries To Drive Across Flood, Fails Miserably

June 3, 2016

tough-guy-vs-flood.jpg

This is a video of a man in Texas who really believes his Chevy Avalanche can get him across a heavily flooded road. So, at least in his mind, Avalanches > Floods. Unfortunately for his pride and dry underwear, he is wrong and has to jump out and swim to safety. This is dangerous and you shouldn't do it, I don't care how big you think your Truck Nuts are. People die regularly doing dumb shit like this, your precious chewing tobacco can wait. "But what about the beer?" Drink hand sanitizer.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to my buddy Zy, who agrees Jesus is clearly not this guy's copilot. Maybe Darwin.

    fool didn't realize he was on a bridge. He thought there smooth asphalt underneath all that smooth water.

    Only posers try to be tough in an Avalanche. Real tough guys wouldn't have anything less than a 2500 or F250 with the diesel.

    What the fuck did I just read?

  • DFCtomm

    I'm willing to bet you've got a 2002 ford F250 long bed with a chipped power stroke and a 4 inch stack coming out the bed, and a 6 inch lift.

  • Bobby May

    Truck should have never skipped leg day.

    So, why didn't he just keep going straight?

    And what's with that avant garde editing??

  • Apok

    you do realize he was trying to go straight but the river/flood current was pulling him in that direction right?

  • GeneralDisorder

    Editing is due to multiple cameras involved. Why they cut out other parts from other cameras, I don't know. Does it matter?

  • jodyberry

    I was just making a joke. Yes, I am an editor and know exactly why it was edited like that (overworked news shooters/editors throw that stuff together all day long). But now that I've explained all that, there goes the little bit of funny I was going for.

  • Soooo close... He needs to reload his last save and try again.

  • He didn't save when prompted.

  • ghostfeces

    Well that video just saved his insurance company $30k.

  • Jason Christopher

    Insurance company would 100% cover this under his comprehensive coverage.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Wouldn't they still have to pay up on comprehensive claim? The fact of the matter is the vehicle was destroyed in operation. that's kind of what comprehensive exists for.

    If he doesn't have comprehensive then the insurance company wouldn't give a fuck anyway.

    The whole "act-of-god" clause would have saved them as well because "oh look... flood is an act of god, ergo we're not paying".

    The look on his face at the end though... Very correct. It's like a mix of "what was I thinking" and "how did that happen".

    I am curious if he hit something under water when he went sideways. Seems likely.

  • sionus

    Lol, no insurance company is going to pay out with so much negligence.

  • iofo61

    But this always works in the commercials! And afterwards, there will be hot girls in bikinis as he drinks his celebratory Bud Light. Dammit, reality should be like TV!

  • Billy Maxwell

    That's why they always have the disclaimer, "Professional driver on closed course. Do not attempt." You just thought they were talking down to you.

    "Are there clowns? I sense clowns."

  • Draco Basileus

    Judging by the driver, I'm guessing he's more of a Natural Light kind of guy.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I was thinking Thunderbird.
