If you ask us, burning rubber is good, wholesome fun. However, there are times when this time-honored tradition just isn’t gonna work out, especially when space is tight, power is high, and talent is low. Such is the case with the following viral video featuring one very unlucky Chevy Camaro.
The video takes place in what appears to be a parking lot in a small industrial park, with a number of parked cars lining the exterior and the middle of some blacktop. In the background, we see a tow truck.
As the video gets under way, we see a second-generation Chevy Camaro start to smoke its tires. Painted in dark blue with two large racing stripes running down the middle, the Chevy looks quite nice. The gold stripes match the wheels and another stripe down the flanks. We see two passengers in the seats.
As the Chevy Camaro burns rubber, we see someone standing to the side, shooting some video. It looks as though the driver is trying to capture some content for social media. As we’ll find out, they are indeed about to go viral, but not in the way they want.
After arcing around some parked cars, the driver snaps off the throttle, sending the Chevy Camaro towards one of the garage doors. The driver hits the brakes and nudges the nose of the Camaro to the right of an adjacent RV, stopping just short of the garage door. After coming to a halt, the driver throws it into reverse, once again stamping on the throttle.
After pointing the car towards some open pavement, the driver lays back into the throttle, sending the rear tires up into smoke. The rear end pivots around, then pendulums back the other way, pointing the Chevy Camaro once again back towards the garage doors. What follows is a relatively slow, painful slide into the garage doors.
Luckily, the collision doesn’t look too heavy, but either way, we hope the driver learned their lesson:
