There are a lot of things in life that can be counted as daring exploits. This, however, isn’t one of them.

A nutjob fan attending a Red Bull sponsored exhibition event in Japan decided that it would be a good idea to jump over a moving Red Bull F1 car, proving that idiocy can always get you your 15 seconds of fame, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

As Scuderia Toro Rosso driver, Sebastian Buemi, was driving the Red Bull showcar back to the pits at a reasonably slow 30 mph, the fan jumped from nowhere and proceeded to clear - or at least attempt to - the moving F1 car. Unfortunately, even his best high-jump impersonation was not, ahem, high enough and his legs just ended up clipping the top of Buemi’s race car.

Despite his random act of lunacy, the fan suffered no serious injuries, but as the video evidently shows, his stunt will now go down in You Tube infamy as one of the dumbest things anybody could do to get some attention.

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 full bio

Well, it’s a good thing that the car is going just around 30 miles per hour. If it was going to at a faster speed, then the guy would have probably been ripped to shreds. Hooray for the driver.

I think the event organizers should also be to blame for this one. They should have made sure that the fans would be off limits to the track itself for safety reasons.

I wonder what’s running on the guy’s head. I have seen some fans run alongside the cars, but nothing as silly as this one. Certainly takes the bait as the stupidest act that I have seen.

woah! I think he tried whichever is faster the man or the car? Just he just wanted to die? This kind of story are not good to hear all the people who loves F1 cars right?

Seriously, they should really ban these guys from the track. Not only do they endanger themselves with those antics, but they also put the driver’s life at risk, not to mention damage a great machine.

I think this is the most daring, extreme and foolish thing a fan can do. I wonder what this guy has in mind before he jumps over the car.

I am still scratching my head as to why that dumbass pulled off that stand,. I mean, come on, he might be a really solid Rwed Bull fan, but that one doesn’t mean that he can pull of that prank;

haha. For all the dumbest thing that I have known this one really stand out!I wonder if that guy is drunk or something..Where is the security here anyway? And due to his idiotcy, I bet this video would be a YouTube sensation!

This person is really insane. The act of jumping while the car is on the race really proves his stupidity. I kept on rewinding Youtube, it’s really funny.
