When you see a Dodge Challenger, you know danger is soon to follow.
Ninety-five percent of Challengers are owned either by newly-returned vets who got ripped off at the dealership or by the grown-up versions of that kid whose basement you’d always smoke weed in (if you’ve ever seen Tokyo Drift being played from a PS2 while sitting on the stickiest couch imaginable, you know exactly the kind of person I’m talking about).
Either way, these two groups don’t generally make for great drivers. That’s why, if a Challenger owner ever says “watch this,” it’s best to get away as fast as you can. Otherwise, you might end up like this dude.
In this video, a man in a Challenger can be seen doing donuts at a takeover. One of the sideshow spectators gets a liiiiittle too close — and suddenly, he’s been yeeted several dozen yards away from the car. Guess you just can’t dodge a Challenger!
Undeterred, the car keeps going, circling around with its bumper dragging across the ground before eventually coming to a stop.
Not to be Captain Obvious here, but this guy is likely injured way, way more than it initially seems. Although he stood up right after the strike, several Redditors noted that injuries from something like this may take a while to set in. “You are looking at a collapsed lung, shatter pelvis, ruptured t*****le at a minimum,” stated one commenter. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he has broken hip, spine or ruptured organs from initial impact,” added another.
That said, things definitely could have been worse. A frame-by-frame scrub through the video reveals what appears to be a gun falling out of his pants. Thankfully, it didn’t go off — though that’s definitely happened before.
For those who are considering going to a sideshow, just remember that you always run the risk of becoming the main event. Also, stay away from Dodge Challengers.
