Stupid Strikes Again

Illustration for article titled Stupid Strikes Again

Wow, cool Mercedes you’ve got there, guy. Is it new? Can you do any tricks with it?


Reader Spen was hanging out at a local bar in Las Vegas recently when they all heard the sound of a burnout and a 6.2-liter V8 in the air and turned to look. A black Mercedes-AMG C63 was attempting to do a burnout down a street, messed up and crashed.

Afterward, Spen spoke with the guy filming the whole thing, who apparently knew the Mercedes driver and was asked to be ready to record it beforehand.


Judging from the video, the impact took out a large chunk of the Mercedes’ front bumper. It’s also kind of weird to me that the driver didn’t stop and just... kept going? Maybe trying to outrun the shame.

Anyway, don’t be that guy.
