"Wipe off that El Camino or something bad will happen." That bizarre suggestion from a friend was enough to set off a major tic for one man with obsessive compulsive disorder. Whenever he sees an El Camino, he's overcome with the need to — HOLY SHIT! THERE'S ONE RIGHT THERE! MOTHER FUCKER! SEE MAN?! — do one of those perplexing, repetitive OCD rituals. Sad, and strange, and yet we totally get it. It's just that our response is, you know, the exact opposite.
But check out the amazing clip above showing his reaction when he spots one.
The story ran on A&E TV's series Obsessed back in 2010 and — HOLY SHIT! THERE'S ONE RIGHT THERE! MOTHER FUCKER! SEE MAN?! — frankly, we're sort of disappointed in ourselves for not finding it sooner.
The guy's obsession seems so random (and yet something we completely understand). Maybe it has something to do with — HOLY SHIT! THERE'S ONE RIGHT THERE! MOTHER FUCKER! SEE MAN?! — the vehicle's asymmetry, or the irrational fear that a 48-year-old alcoholic grave digger from Ohio might be behind the wheel. All we know is, it's the most amazing pathology we've ever seen. One question remains, though. Does the Ford Ranchero set him off too?
