Jokes about leg day aside, uh, please never ever use your body as a push-bar between two cars.

This video, which you might have already seen if you’re in Jalopnik’s super cool Facebook group The Way Back, is so cringy to watch but I can’t look away. It’s tough to tell exactly how long this clip’s been floating around the internet, but it’s a good opportunity to examine what not to do, regardless.


I mean, it sure was nice of this 4Runner to try and render assistance to a struggling taxi cab, but my god man, don’t expose your skeleton to thousands of pounds of force to avoid scraping a few bumpers.

At least, the avoiding of scraping is what I assume the logic was here. That, or somebody’s filming a new Jackass movie.


Hat tip to Jay!
