This Fake Steering Wheel Prank Ends in Funny Car Crash

Back when I was learning to drive, I would ride with a good friend of mine who was a few years older than me and he would give me pointers while he drove, just to help get some education from someone other than my parents to help speed up the learning process.

One day, he showed me how he could hold the steering wheel with his knee and quickly slide his hands around the steering wheel, making it look to cars in the other lane like he was swerving into them. The second time he did it, the lady in the car beside us actually thought he was turning into her and slammed on her brakes and swerved toward the shoulder on the interstate, but luckily there was no traffic around or it could have ended badly.

Well in this commercial, the passenger in the little red car finds a steering wheel of her own and does basically the same thing, pretending to swerve into the yellow car as it pulls alongside. The driver of the yellow car believes she’s going to nail him, so he slams on the brakes and swerves, then spins out!

Of course, this is just a commercial, but trust me when I tell you, I’ve seen it happen first hand!
