Can’t believe he thought this would work!

Have you ever seen trucks jump on dirt tracks? Of course you did. Those cars, however are the monsters that equipped to ‘fly’. However, here’s one person - who I’m going to refer to as ‘God’s child’ because he is so very special – who thought that even a regular truck that’s meant to roll over the roads can take flight.

What do you think happened? His black beauty went up in the air and crash-landed before being paralyzed with damage all around the body and some internal ones as well that we are not aware of. Fortunately, God’s child came out safe.

My Truck Has Wings, Hold My Red Bull

So, the video begins with God’s child gaining speed and hitting about 60 mph at the elevation. The truck, by the way, is a Ford Raptor.

Until here, it looks like the scene from Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift.

Remember the part when the cop shows Sean’s mom the video clipping at the Police Station? Pretty sure this dude was inspired by that too. Anyway, the truck gets off the ‘cliff’, at roughly 60 mph, and crash lands hard into the ground. If you listen carefully, you can hear God’s child say “Gravity, thou art a bit*h”. The sound died when the airbag inflated, maybe that’s why you won’t be able to hear it. Perhaps he expected the truck to float and take a soft landing. Come on, buddy, you ain’t no Chuck Norris to do that!

Aim High, Fly Higher

Although Ford’s tagline does say ‘Built Tough’, the F-150 is not built to take such impacts.

This was a 90-feet fall that resulted in broken suspensions, popped tires, damaged bumpers, shattered dreams, recurring bills and whatnot.

Not to mention, the agony that people watching this must have gone through. This video is six years old but it still gives me the heebie-jeebies. It has been viewed over 12 million times to date. Legend says that God’s child was interviewed after the accident and he thought the insurance company will cover up for the damages. Well, uhm, okay.

I Heard The Truck Filed a ‘Domestic Violence’ Case Against The Driver

On a side note, if any AI developer is reading this, can we have some sort of an IQ test instead of keys to determine if the person is capable of getting behind the wheel or not? Everything said and done, this video sure gave us a good laugh. I don’t know why, but I visualized the driver to look like Dwight Schrute’s cousin, Mose, from “The Office”.

Do you have any “God’s child” friends in your circle? Go ahead and share this link with them and let them know what you think about them.
