I’m one of those people who hate the word “epic,” it’s thrown around so frequently now that its lost all meaning. However, after watching this car explosion video I’m going to have to use this annoying word (forgive me), because nothing else can describe how awesome this video is. The video popped up late yesterday afternoon on Reddit and it is the culmination of a weekend’s worth of work, a Labor Day Weekend in which a few ‘Bama fans got together to blow up an SUV, jump it over a creek/stream/river, and film themselves jumping out of the fiery SUV in slow-motion. You just gotta love the south, that shit just doesn’t happen in Los Angeles:
Best Labor Day Weekend ever? Best Labor Day Weekend ever.
If you’re wondering how/why/where all this went down, these are the few details I scrum up on OP’s Reddit comments:
How did you get the truck out of the water???
Out at a friends farm. Just pulled it out with a tractor!
Yep, the south had more fun than I did last weekend.
Football, beer, and flying flaming vehicles. Roll tide.
He’s jumping a SUV—through burning wood/grass/coals—with no door or seat belt—jumps out mid-flight—but he’s worried about getting water in his nose?
That’s all the detail we’ve got to go on here….Well, we’ve got those comments AND all the comments on YouTube calling him a little boy for plugging his nose as he was jumping out of a flaming vehicle and landing into a river. You’d think that these commenters would realize that it was probably to avoid smoke inhalation, and has nothing to do with getting water up his nose.
