What The Hell Was That?: Guy Tries To Ride His Dead Car Down Hill In Neutral, Fails

October 5, 2017

Note: Some ultra-colorful language when things go south.

This is a video of some guy trying to ride outside his Honda CRX down a hill after it allegedly died. SPOILER LIKE YOU COULDN'T TELL FROM THE SCREENCAP: It crashes and he loses all his Busch Light. Is it real? Is it fake? I have no clue, and I even tried zooming and enhancing the video like in one of those crime-solving dramas. I want it to be real, because I really want to believe there's somebody out there actually crazy enough to try this, but Florida doesn't have hills like that.

Keep going for the whole video and tell me what the hell is going on.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees he should have surfed on top of the car.

    I feel like most Hondas have been through something like this.

    "Florida doesn't have hills like that."
    Not true we have garbage dumps which are pretty high.

  • BigChick

    Of course this guy films in portrait mode. Also, coasting down a hill is just about the easiest thing you could do. You just put it in neutral and coast. How does one screw that up? Much dumb. Many laughs.

    I was under the impression that the CRX had manual steering but... I could be wrong about that.

    I'm sure they have boosted hydraulic brakes though because that's been a thing since like... 1960.

    Also: doesn't look like that was all original so... sadly, not as big a loss as it could have been.

    People are getting dumber by the day.

    While he may have actually crashed a car. My working Hypothesis is that the the neatly ordered beer cans, seat and strewn debris are staged.

    Gotta disagree with you on that one. As he brings the camera back up towards the car after he bailed(?), you can see that the car is still moving (watch the rear axle fall back onto the road).

  • Titty McNipplefondler

    You are assuming he is alone, this would be very easy to fake with a friend and a hydraulic jack.

  • pinormous

    I can't refute that!

  • Talon184

    Fake news...

  • WhiteEagle2

    He just seems so okay about it. Like about 3 seconds of "oh shit" then, alright on with my life.

  • sizzlepants

    Immediately after "crashing" and rolling out of the car...

    "Thanks for sticking around guys."

    Why are you giving this fake ass moron more attention.

  • JJtoob

    It looked like either he expected to put this up on YouTube, or he was livestreaming. Or wanted to make it seem that way.

    Because without the car running the power steering is rendered useless and makes it extremely hard to turn the wheel.
    Had he been IN the car, he might have been able to steer it using both hands, but ...well, we know the rest. :-D

  • Bufort

    Yeh but its only a crappy little honda, it'll be easy to turn without power steering, unless he's a girl.

  • Bufort

    diddums.
