April Fool’s day is fun for some people — and annoying for others. John Oliver thinks pranks are terrible, and he’s gotten some people to make a no-pranks pledge. But for folks who like to waste time and smirk at the discomfort at others, here are a couple videos to watch featuring cars and some crazy driving.
- Driving instructors probably have more than their share of scary moments in a car, so why not prank them on their first day on the job? Professional driver Leona Chin pretended to be an incompetent driver for a bit, then pulled into a closed parking lot and took the car for a real spin. [url]
- Here’s another prank — get some guys to go on a blind date, but don’t tell them that their date is a professional driver before she starts driving like a maniac. BTW, this prank is supposed to sell more Ford Mustangs, too. [url]
- Drifting seems like the cool thing for drivers to do nowadays, so there’s also an autonomous car that can drift. The robot car cheats a little bit because it needs wet pavement, but do you really want an autonomous car that can drift on any road at any time? Imagine the reactions if cars had an autonomous insane mode for drifting…. [url]
