Some folks do the dumbest things to make strangers on the Internet think they’re cool. That includes the Chevy Silverado owner featured here, who, in his quest to “do it for the ‘Gram,” ended up getting run over by his own Chevy Silverado pickup truck.
Recently making the rounds on social media, this video is brief and brutal. It starts with a heavily modified Chevy Silverado pickup truck, which appears as though it’s been “squatted” – that is, the suspension has been altered to add ride height in front and decrease ride height in the rear, giving it a considerable negative rake angle. The wheels and tires have also been modified with aftermarket components.
The owner (we’re guessing it’s the owner, at least) exits the cabin and lets the Chevy Silverado move ahead in drive, propping the door open as he goes. It looks as though he wants to “ghost ride the whip,” a popular stunt wherein the driver exits their vehicle and walks / dances next to it as the vehicle rolls forward without anyone behind the wheel. A random passenger is also seen hanging out of the rear window.
Things go alright at first, with the owner posing next to his truck and dancing as it rolls. However, after throwing out a few moves, it looks like the Chevy Silverado starts to pick up a little speed. The owner clearly isn’t ready, and starts to fall behind before accidentally catching his foot underneath the rear tire.
Unable to dislodge his foot, the dancing owner is thrown to the ground as his modified Chevy Silverado proceeds to run him over. We then hear a sickening snap noise as the owner’s bones shatter under the heavy pickup, all while the owner screams in pain.
It’s uncertain exactly what injuries the owner sustained, but rumor has it the femur is the culprit behind the snapping noise.
Lesson learned – don’t try this at home, kids. Likes aren’t gonna pay the medical bills.
