You Tell 'Em, Granny
If upon looking at this video your immediate reaction is to assume it’s some kind of lame skateboarding stunt tape, think again.
This video is so much more than that.
Sure, it begins with one skater filming his skating buddies doing some decidedly unexciting tricks on a quiet afternoon in the park, but soon after, it takes an unexpected turn.
The screech of brakes. A car slamming to a halt. The skater holding the camera realizes something’s going on and pans over, only to see a quite unexpected sight:
An old woman standing in the middle of the crosswalk in front of a now stopped convertible. Just… standing there.
The driver of this vehicle, instead of getting out and attempting to assist the elderly lady (who appears to be about 97) decides to go the polar opposite route of classy gentleman and starts blaring on his horn.This startles the woman out of her sleep immediately.
Yes, that’s right, you read that correctly. And if you didn’t notice it the first time you watched the video, go look at it again. This old bird was taking a snooze, standing up, in the middle of the road.
And apparently, instead of being any cause for concern, this is actually more of a huge inconvenience to the driver of the convertible, who not only honks at her but begins aggressively revving his engine in some sort of “I’m gonna run you over, you old hag” kind of threat.
Realizing what’s going on, the woman snaps to and prepares to move on, but not before almost as an afterthought winding up with her hand bag and clubbing the front bumper of the man’s car, an act that would have been hilarious in and of itself even if it hadn’t somehow released the guy’s airbag – which it did.
The old woman walks away without saying a word. The obnoxious douche bag sitting there trying to figure out what to do with the airbag in his face says so much more than that.
And while we’re on the subject of gem Internet videos, I recently had the good fortune to come across a classic clip I first saw a few years ago but had since forgotten. This thing needs no introduction – just make sure you watch it all the way to the end. Pretty much goes from irritating, cheesy, unwatchable news segment to sadistically hilarious in a matter of seconds. We’ve been watching this non-stop for the past 24 hours or so here at OCC H.Q. and each time it somehow manages to induce physical pain from laughing so hard.
