AHAHA, You Are So Dumb: How Not To Use Tow Straps

January 22, 2015

truck-tow-fail-so-hard-you-so-dumb.jpg

This is an almost-hard-to-believe-somebody-is-really-that-stupid video of some idiot who thinks the right way to use tow straps to pull a stuck vehicle is to make sure there's a lot of slack ("I've got 30-feet of strap"), then slam the truck in reverse as fast as you can. Obviously, the results are very pleasing to us, the viewer. The guy filming it seemed to enjoy it too. Man -- stupid people. It just sucks they exist in real life too and not just Youtube videos.

Hit the jump for the video, but be sure to check out our sister site Hedonistica for more of the latest videos including this dude beating Super Mario World in in six minutes using some glitch that makes no sense, a cartoon about a stormtrooper who misses home, and Microsoft's latest augmented reality concept.

    To be fair there are snatch straps, they are an elastic nylon that you are meant to use some speed with. https://www.youtube.com/wat... he could well have been using one of those. That being said, he went too hard methinks for a first run.

  • Brent Turcotte

    to funny time to learn about pressure and then pull gently what a idiot.

  • TheQiwiMan

    I do believe that young man was the OBGYN that helped my wife deliver our baby. Only took 3 seconds!

    (...took a bit longer to fish out the baby's body though...)

  • Jenness

    EwwwWWWWWwww

  • JJtoob

    He pulled out like he didn't want t he other truck to get pregnant.

  • Singlecell

    It seems the issue is more that the strap was attached to his plastic bumper rather then the technique he was using.

  • JJtoob

    But the technique didn't help.

  • Kaizer Chief

    I was thinking the exact same thing.

    Here, let me google that for you: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=what+a...

  • Singlecell

    I dont know if that was meant for me or the guy in the video. . . In case it was for me, the tow hook is meant to be attached to the chassis of the vehicle, not the plastic bumper.

  • shashi

    0:26 in the video:
    1 - "did it shear my whole frame?"
    2 - "yeah"
    1 - "coz that's not s'posed to come off there!"
    2 & 3 - (in unison) "NO!"

    Me - Should you quit now?
    The world - (in unison) "YEAH!"

  • Singlecell

    Yes the front did shear right off, but that piece of metal is meant for mounting the bumper to, and running wiring harnesses on. Not for pulling a couple of ton of vehicle.

    he would have been ok if he went slow but lets agree he's an idiot for more than one reason. Or you are defending his technique? Are you him?

  • Singlecell

    OH he is definitely an idiot for many reasons. I can settle with that.

  • I could watch videos of shitty tow jobs all day.

  • Just realized that changing the spelling of "tow" really changes that whole statement.

  • Matt

    this is why you dont give kids big ass trucks that they cant handle

  • Andy Green

    He almost ripped the other truck in half! Certainly didn't do it any good!

  • Sean Lally

    "That's what you do with these straps, you just go."

  • Jeremy Tilton

    "No..."
