Stunt Driving Fail: Always Wear Your Seat Belt Edition [Video]

Disclaimers exist for a reason: some things really are best left to professionals – for instance, stunt car driving.

In this video, a couple of thrill seekers decide it’ll be cool to pull a few extreme moves for the camera. After kicking up some smoking donuts, the driver decides to take on a sharp turn for on-lookers. Unfortunately, someone in the car isn’t wearing a seat belt and the door swings open. What happens next is just simple physics, obviously a class in high school that this passenger didn’t attend. The man appears to be unharmed by the accident, aside from scrapes, bruises and his ego.

The man who is ejected from the vehicle appears to come out of the back seat, although the video’s poor quality makes it hard to determine whether he is the driver, front passenger or rear passenger. Watch closely and let us know which person you see popping out in the comments section below.

Finally, though we shouldn’t have to remind you, do not to try this at home… otherwise we’ll be making fun of you next time around.

OK Go and Chevy Sonic Make Beautiful Music Together

The band OK Go is known for its funky music videos. This time around, OK Go has teamed up with Chevrolet for its newest viral video. But instead of using choreographed moves on a treadmill, the band is using a Chevy Sonic to play instruments.

In order for the Chevy Sonic to play instruments on the bands latest single, “Needing/Getting,” a few modifications had to be added. This included installing retractable pneumatic arms that would hit instruments as the Sonic drove by them. To make this video happen, it took four months of prep work, four days of filming, stunt driving lessons, two miles of track and 1000 instruments set up along the course.

It already looks like this video is a hit – over four million hits on YouTube and counting. Watch the video after the jump and let us know what you think.

Inside the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center
Any self respecting car company these days has to have a presence on social media sites, and Mercedes-Benz is no exception.

This German brand has their own channel of YouTube called MercedesBenzReporter, and they use this channel to inform the public about their latest models. However in a recent episode, they covered not a car, but a facility.

The facility in question is the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Irvine, CA. The job of the Classic Center is to help maintain and restore old Mercedes-Benz models.

The place is full of rare and exotic vehicles from the brand, so it is a must for any enthusiast of this brand to visit, especially since they buy cars to either display or sell.

Audi Launches Its Own Version Of Shark Week

The rather cumbersomely-named “R8 GT Week” will feature daily videos that show off the R8 GT’s performance as it laps Infineon Raceway, with Audi racer Emanuele Pirro behind the wheel. Pirro won five LeMans championships, three of which were with Audi, so he certainly qualifies as an expert.
