Stupidity knows no bounds. Need an example? Try running out in front of a moving Formula 1 race car… you know, those highest of high-tech race machines capable of hitting 60 mph in under two seconds and speed of well over 200 mph.

That’s exactly what one crazed fan did at a recent Red Bull exhibition in Japan. The F1 car was being driven by Sebastien Buemi and lucky for the sprinting idiot with a vertical leap much lower than he had hoped, Buemi wasn’t going very quickly.

From the video it’s obvious that he managed to walk away from the incident although we’re pretty sure the authorities will be having more than just a few words with him.

Watch the video after the jump:

    In a world of dumb and dumber, he ranks as pure stupid. If he would have hit Buemi in the helmet it would have done serious damage.
