There are not too many things that can go wrong at the drive-thru car wash. The most important thing is to stay in the car with the windows and doors closed. All you have to do is sit patiently inside the vehicle while powerful sprayers and mechanized brushes do the dirty work for you. At a lot of these car washes, an attendant will even tape your loose bumper to the car so it doesn’t fall off during the wash. There are signs everywhere that remind you how it works.
Car washes are supposed to be fun to go through and save you the trouble of getting down and dirty to wash your car. However, around the one-minute mark, this driver opens his door to grab something from his windshield. The vehicle’s door gets caught by the powerful brushes and is pushed in the reverse direction, essentially bending it backward and nearly ripping it off. The door gets crushed and water flows into the inside of the vehicle.
Even though the video is from May 2010, it will NEVER get old.
Why the driver would ever try and open his door completely blows our mind. Maybe he wanted to become really famous on the Internet and couldn’t think of a sensible way to do it.
