Video: 4th Gen Camaro Donuts Go Bad, Exactly Nobody is Surprised

The depth and breadth of the internet is sometimes surprising even to us. Though it is our job to find and share content from across the web, we always seem to turn up things we can’t believe we missed the first time around.

This video is a perfect example. Shot at the 2012 Hard N Tha Paint Picnic, an event which strangely enough doesn’t seem to have a well-organized internet presence, it depicts the results of overconfidence, or what some might colloquially refer to as a “ZFG” attitude.

'Yes! This looks like the perfect spot to spin my Camaro around in circles, barely inches from people who will beat my ass if I hit them or their cars!'

‘Yes! This looks like the perfect spot to spin my Camaro around in circles, barely inches from people who will beat my ass if I hit them or their cars!’

Just 46 seconds long, the video opens with a 4th Gen Camaro SS in a crowded parking lot. The driver breaks the tires loose and begins doing a donut, despite the limited space, pedestrians all around, and a speed bump. All goes well for the first revolution, then, the inevitable happens.

'Curse my unforeseen yet inevitable fate!'

‘Curse my unforeseen yet inevitable fate!’

The Flying Doorstop finds the nearest, largest object to wedge itself beneath, namely a Chevy Tahoe. The sickening crunch actually lifts one of the SUV’s tires completely off the ground, and the driver of the Camaro, upon trying to get his car free, discovers he’s stuck.

'Oh HELL no!'

‘Oh HELL no!’

Unfortunately for him, the Tahoe’s presumed owners are right on the scene. Unfortunately for us, the video ends before the presumed beat-down begins.

Though this video might be a couple years old, it’s still a textbook example of the cliche, “Play stupid games, win stupid prizes…”
