'Driverless' Van Spotted Driving Around D.C. Area, Actually A Guy Dressed As A Car Seat

August 7, 2017


This is a video of NBC Washington transportation reporter Adam Tuss trying to interview a man who's been driving a van around Arlington, Virginia dressed as a car seat (possibly inspired by that fast food drive-through prank). Apparently the seat had no interest in being interviewed. Honestly, it's just nice to know there are still some people out there doing God's work.

UPDATE: Apparently this man is participating in a study being conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute about of how people react to driverless cars, and was supposed to be doing what he was doing, which was being a car seat.

Keep going for the unsuccessful interview, complete with classic lines like "Brother -- who are you?" "What are you doing?" and "I'm with the news, dude."

Thanks to Marcus O, who just realized what he's going to be for Halloween this year.

    Need to try this trick out at work. Just my empty chair, sitting here at the desk, with words magically being typed on this keyboard...

    "I'm with the news, dude"....as if the driver needed another reason not to talk to the guy

    PLOT TWIST: It actually IS a driverless car, and the prankster just put two fake arms under a fake fake seat.

    And M. Night Shamalamadingdong cashes another million dollar Hollywood check.
