THE EDGE — We've all been in places with our cars that seem impossible to get out of.
For example, two years ago my friends and I got stuck in a watery portion of the Bonneville Salt Flats and had to wait two hours for one of our parents to drive their pickup truck out to save our poor, innocent, joyriding souls. In the meantime, we swam in the giant puddle that the car got stuck on the edge of and made a survival vlog. Cringey, yes, but a good way to alleviate the boredom.
What's the wildest spot you've ever gotten your car stuck in, and how did you get out?
No matter what your answer, it probably isn't as wild as this video.
I don't know about you, but this video makes me want to hurl. Or scream. Or give up on today and try again tomorrow.
Driving on the edge of a cliffside or hilltop is anxiety-inducing enough, but the driver in this video decides to pull the most impossible U-turn I've ever seen. I don't know if this is a leaked audition tape for the next "Fast and Furious" film or confirmation that Transformers live among us. But whatever it is, it's wild.
Also, why didn't the driver just wait until the top to turn around? I smell a show-off. Still, I have to admit this is so impressive that I don't care.
