It starts out like your typical road rage video. A guy is driving along, just minding his own business, when an impatient motorist honks his horn before pulling up alongside the driver and hurling obscenities at him. The angry driver challenges the seemingly more levelheaded driver to “do something” after the latter flips him the bird. Well, Mr. Tough Guy quickly gets more than he bargains for when the other driver calmly brandishes a 9mm handgun, and sticks it sideways out of car window. Cue the dude, who only seconds before was ready to throw down right then and there, immediately slamming on his brakes.
This incident seems like something that should have ended up resulting in criminal charges, but all may not be what it seems. Just watch the video and see for yourself.
If your inner skeptic was telling you that this video might not be as real as advertised, then give yourself a pat on the back, because your instincts are 100% correct.
Posted by a guy who calls himself “Mr Obnoxious” on Facebook, the video of the so-called “road rage” incident racked up more than 43 million views. Though many commenters were quick to point out that the events depicted in the video were, in fact, all an act and were meant to serve as more of a public service announcement to warn others about the dangers of road rage, it still offers an important lesson about thinking before you act on the road. Because you never know what other drivers might be packing.
We bet a lot of people out there heard that lesson loud and clear after watching this video.
