About a week ago, we showed you a video of a mentally fried dude doing his best Need for Speed impersonation: carelessly drifting on public roads with not a care in the world. We emphasized the dangers of being that reckless, no matter how cool it looks.

Turns out, another one of those videos has appeared on the ’Net, only this time, the perp can be seen driving a Lexus IS-F. The situations are different, but the dangers certainly aren’t. In this case, the driver successfully pulls off the high-speed drive in the middle of traffic, narrowly escaping crashing while doing his dangerous stunt.

Technically speaking, he pulls off an impressive drift. – added brownie points for the degree of difficulty but in all sense and sensibilities, this is the kind of drift we don’t encourage. We said it before, if you’re going to drift, make sure it’s in the appropriate environment where won’t risk your life and the lives of those around you.

The shorthand version: don’t be an idiot when you drift.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I know that this video is interesting. But I could not watch it since the video is private. There are many dangers in driving the cars in a risky manner and Lexus IS-F is no exception. I hope drivers will take extra precaution in pulling a stunt.

Absolutely! Perhaps women are not the best drivers, but at least do not do such stupid things. Or I, at least, have not encountered cases.

Dear creator of this movie, it would have been a great idea to show us the car number, just to keep it in our minds and to avoid it!!!
