Without even looking I'm betting we saw this a year or two ago.

Hey, I'm just happy to see teens making an effort to get something done.

Now, if only I could find a video of teens accidentally setting their entire stash of fireworks off at once...

They shouldn't have attached it to the bumper.

I gather that what happens is; they try to tow from the bumper, and pull the bumper off. Happens all the time, just not always on film. Many people also learn the hard way where NOT to put the jack under a car when changing a tire.

The t in "thsose" should be capitalized. It should also be spelled "those". "Those" does not agree in number with "car". Also, "car" does not agree with "are". You should also end your sentence with a period. And...what Chinese cars are you referring to?

thing is, with that many people they easily could have rocked it a few times and pushed it out
we've gotten bigger cars, out of worse situations, with fewer people

they should have just pushed it, it was a small car, not really stuck that badly, and they had at least 3 pushers available (camera person, pickup driver, dude in orange)

Still don't know if it's real - why would you film that?

I'm hoping that the cameraman just happened to see what was going to come out of the scenario. Instead of telling the idiots, he decided to film it instead.

I give him a thumbs up for the idea, not so much on the execution.

Maybe they shouldn't have pulled the car into the snow drift.

The future of America.
