TRUCKED UP: Diesel Ford Almost Wrecks

By -

Everybody loves a good burnout, especially one accompanied by a huge plume of black smoke coming from a diesel stack.  And everybody also loves a good fail video (or almost fail), even when it happens behind the wheel of one of our beloved Ford trucks.

This video fits all of the criteria above, documenting a bit of bad driving that leads to a scary moment for the brave person capturing the whole thing on crappy cell phone video.  Things start off innocently enough but almost go very wrong for both driver and camera man.

It begins with the lifted diesel Ford spooling up the engine and breaking traction for what looks to be a nice burnout.  But as he gains speed, the driver loses control and almost slams into his buddy’s truck, head first.

The camera man undoubtedly needed to change his shorts after the mishap, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the driver did too.  Thanks to the internet, we can enjoy the terrifying moment from the comfort of our couches, even though the driver probably wishes it would disappear forever.

Remember kids – burnouts are cool, but know your vehicle and don’t exceed the limits of your abilities when you put the pedal down.  Because if you do, you might just become internet famous.
