High-powered vehicles like the fifth-generation Pontiac GTO can sometimes overwhelm the faculties, causing an otherwise intelligent individual to act foolishly, even recklessly. Such is the case in the following viral video showing a Pontiac GTO performing a few donuts before unexpectedly rolling over.
The video is less than 30 seconds long, but that’s more than enough time for this Pontiac GTO driver to make an absolute mess of things. The video opens on a city street corner at night. We see a black Pontiac GTO stopped at the intersection, and when the camera pans over to the left, we see a few people milling around outside what could be a night club or bar.
Suddenly, we hear the Pontiac GTO rev its engine and squeal the tires. As the camera pans back to the street corner on the right, we see the black coupe rounding off a few donuts in the middle of the intersection, the rear rubber going up in a cloud of white smoke. The onlookers on the street corner watch as the Pontiac GTO loops around a few times, and the intersection is quickly shrouded in vaporized tire bits.
Not exactly an amazing display of keen driving prowess, but at least the Pontiac GTO hasn’t smashed into anything. At least not yet.
After a few donuts to impress the onlookers, the Pontiac GTO driver opts to gun it down an adjacent street, quickly accelerating past rows of parked cars. We see the rear tires continue to spin, and the rear end is loose. That’s when the driver makes a huge mistake. As the rear end slithers around, the Pontiac GTO starts to shimmy right. The GTO then spears over to the left, right into a parked car. As the GTO makes contact with the parked car, it’s lifted off the ground, causing it to roll over onto its roof.
How embarrassing. Watch it all go down right here:
