Illustration for article titled MacGyver unable to fix his own car

Richard Dean Anderson is just an actor. He is not MacGyver. He cannot fix everything with a paperclip and a ballpoint pen. Yet, there's something disappointing about seeing him with the hood on his car open waiting for someone to help him. You're MACGYVER. Help yourself, man. Help yourself.


The 61-year-old actor was caught helplessly standing next to his dead Audi in Malibu yesterday, waiting for help. LIKE A DAMN HUMAN BEING.

He just stares at it. At the car. Like he has no idea what to do with it. He's wearing cargo pants. It's really sad.


Of course, the car is an Audi Allroad, which is so mechanically screwed up even other Audi owners scoff at it for being unreliable. With its Torsen quattro four-wheel drive system and air suspension it's impossibly complex. The real MacGyver probably couldn't keep an Allroad on the road for more than six hours at a time without a Staples full of office supplies.

But the real MacGyver doesn't exist. Clearly.
