They can't do a proper burnout.

I bet he hit a different "pot" hole before the burnout.

A few years ago while in high school , a upperclassmen had a .great 57 chevy . One day he is going to show off . He reves it up and dumps the clutch . In reverse , right into a large pole . Drove that pole all the way into the rear window , and the pole was vertical . Totaled the car , and yes he was the talk of the school that day . So I guess he got the attention he was looking for .

LOL. I needed that laugh. You know what's scary, I recognize that parking lot. That is Knoxville, TN.....Ray and Joe's neighbor.

I worked for Goodyear yrs ago, when the 5L Mustang's 1st came out with 16'' wheels. This guy comes in complaining that the tires don't last. He bought the car new for his son for graduation. It had 6000 miles on it and the rear tires were bald. I showed him the front tires with plenty of meat on them and said. "What do you think happened?" I gave him a price and he nearly crapped his drawers. A week later he came in with his son, and made him pay for the tire's himself. The father really made a big stink about the tires when he 1st came in. He was loud and cussing up a storm. The look on his face when the car was on the hoist and the frt tires were new, and the stuck rubber on the rear fenders was priceless.

Whoops!!

I did something similar on a dirt bike once. I came sliding up to the back of the truck where my sister was sitting, I grabbed my beer, took a long hard pull, then revved the bike up and dumped the clutch planning on doing a major burn out and tossing sand and gravel everywhere......nope.
The tire caught, front wheel left the ground, threw me in the dirt and bike landed on me.
My sister calmly said "impressive" and started laughing

LOL
Bobby
