This clip, will show you a man from England who clearly overestimates the capabilities of his Zafira – or underestimates its buoyancy – by driving straight into a large body of water formed into what appears to be an underpass. People, in case of floods, that’s rule number one: never go through the water if there’s even the smallest of chances the street’s level is lowering.
The people on the street, helpful as usual, cheer him on as he approaches the temporary lake, but as soon as he actually goes into the water, everybody suddenly starts to wonder why the hell he did it. Maybe because he didn’t realize it was a stupid idea and nobody had the decency to at least try and warn him? Yeah, that’s definitely why.
Anyway, once his car starts to float, everybody becomes a specialist in the physics of fluids, wondering why would he even try something like that and ignoring they all had a part in it. The clip ends too soon to see the incident’s conclusion: did the driver skipper manage to make it back? Did he get to the other side? Did he swim, or did his car just drift away in the end? Did he pop open an umbrella out the window and used it as a sail? Whatever the case, that car is in desperate need of a good wash and a few sunny days to dry. Oh, and a more clever driver wouldn’t help either.
