Andrew Adams, KSL Newsradio Hoping to be famous? You won't believe what's generated over 40,000 hits on YouTube. It is even famous enough that it will be featured on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight.

Johnny Morris found out what can go wrong when you launch a bowling ball off a ramp from a speeding car. "It sounded like a gunshot," Morris said. "I looked at my windshield mirror and the windshield is flying out of the back."

The funny thing about it is that the bowling ball followed the car and shattered the windshield. "We had higher hopes," Morris said. He told us that he didn't explain the incident to his insurance company.

The accident was immortalized on video; it's insanely popular on YouTube.

Morris says he likes taking risks, so now he's trying the restaurant business. "Hopefully with what's going on here I just won't end up with a bowling ball in the back of my shop," Morris said.
