I've been known to throw words with hyperbole like "amazing," "crazy," "awesome," and "insane" around a lot, but this is the first time in a long time I've been truly stunned. This guy hit over 50 green lights in Manhattan. IN A ROW.
Now, there's nothing fantastic about timing your lights perfectly, so that you can continue cruising for as long as possible. Lots of people do it all the time. But to hit 55 in a row, in the densest part, of the densest city in the United States is unthinkable.
To hit 55 in a row is a thing of zen-like beauty, requiring the throttle control that Grand Lamas take years to perfect. Even if it was at three in the morning.
If you live in a similarly gridlocked city, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. This clip is over six minutes long, and I can't stop watching.
Clearly this is some sort of world record. Somebody call Guinness.
