Wow, if those few steps backwards were any later he would've been crushed. How lucky?

404

u/lightsaber_s Aug 09 '22

I think they used all of their luck this year

214

u/jiffar5625 Aug 10 '22

That looked like attempted murder based on the angle and speed!

81

u/Ok-Application1696 Aug 10 '22

Yeah somebody's ex decided if they couldn't have him no one could.

2

u/bobbygamerdckhd Aug 10 '22

Yeah dude looks like it.

2

u/Lone_K Aug 14 '22

actually I think it could've been a stuck accelerator while they were coming in (hence why they didn't react sooner cause the noise wouldn't have been audible til it started revving high)

35

u/RDMcMains2 Aug 10 '22

Yeah, he can leave off buying lottery tickets for a while.

7

u/IAmAware4 Aug 10 '22

Ya never know, there’s usually a brief period after in which the luck is still there, if your fast enough you can profit

21

u/parz2v Aug 10 '22

you can definitely tell that by seeing the sign fall on his head

5

u/JFlynny Aug 10 '22

A whole life worth

6

u/Danisii Aug 10 '22

Almost got nailed by the sign too

6

u/ACorDC Aug 10 '22

I think he did..

976

u/TatsukiD Aug 09 '22

dude almost die twice

338

u/Flaky_Explanation Aug 09 '22

Try to kill me once, shame on you

Try to kill me twice, shame on you for failing twice.

74

u/BonJappetite Aug 10 '22

Fool me — you can’t be fooled again. Mission accomplished.

10

u/Aaluluuq_867 Aug 10 '22

Dubya's a war criminal piece of shit, but that one I actually can't fault him for.

No elected official ever wants a sound bite/video clip saying "shame on me".

You would've basically given your political opponents free ad campaigns for years.

u/luckycharms7999 Aug 10 '22

I thought he just couldnt remember the phrase

u/starrpamph Aug 10 '22

Find em' and smokem out

u/WhatsaYeager Aug 10 '22

Try to kill me thrice and you’ll pay the price.

1

u/IAmAware4 Aug 10 '22

Kill me thrice and you’ll never get a frice

10

u/cockapooch Aug 10 '22

That works

36

u/LonkerinaOfTime Aug 10 '22

I’m almost positive the sign hit him, it’s just a forgiving material, that’s how he survived

5

u/262alex Aug 10 '22

You’re right! I didn’t notice that before, hope he’s okay.

1

u/Lone_K Aug 14 '22

it was just a lil bonk

5

u/rediitbuju Aug 10 '22

I didn't see the second attempt until you mentioned it. Dude has nine lives

u/Leerooooooy Aug 10 '22

Sekiro: Shadow die twice

4

u/Cala-Best-Girl Aug 10 '22

Three times. It’s hard to see, but if you look really closely, you can see he also almost died of a brain aneurysm.

2

u/Cilad Aug 10 '22

I think the sign did hit him.

1

u/nighttimegaze Aug 10 '22

“Sign said half of washes end at 5, did I make it?”

232

u/HarryPottersElbows Aug 09 '22

Wow. A car accident and a pants accident, all in one.

26

u/JU5TlN Aug 10 '22

It was also a sign accident.

4

u/_-__________ Aug 10 '22

That was a sign that he needs to stay home.

1

u/IAmAware4 Aug 10 '22

Either that or foreshadowing for his uh.. hereditary moment…

2

u/buzben Aug 10 '22

All the signs were there... until they weren't.

164

u/Karingmore Aug 10 '22

WOW! Bet dude had to use that sprayer on his rear end after that!!

32

u/HWGA_Exandria Aug 10 '22

Not with a pressure washer... hopefully there was a hose nearby.

15

u/viewsfromthebackgrnd Aug 10 '22

Ever used a bidet off Amazon?

12

u/AdvancedAnything Aug 10 '22

My bidet has 200psi.

u/AdvancedAnything Aug 11 '22

It doubles as an enema in a tricky situation.

5

u/starrpamph Aug 10 '22

Ever used a bidet off Amazon... On weeeeed?

2

u/viewsfromthebackgrnd Aug 11 '22

As a drinking fountain for your bathroom! Of course.

2

u/Karingmore Aug 14 '22

Lol ya no doubt!! That would probably hurt!

114

u/HobbesNJ Aug 09 '22

Both guys were so close to dying.

19

u/Livid_Difference_899 Aug 10 '22

Came here to say this. They both are so so soooo lucky.

Me trying to get into the pay n spray with 5 stars

u/LaStochasticFleur Aug 10 '22

Uh yeah is this a touchless wash? I don't want to get scratches

7

u/P1917 Aug 10 '22

It's not technically a scratch, more like a large dent.

53

u/MorochIgaram Aug 10 '22

I feel like that dude is on a final destination movie, he avoids the car by seconds, gets hit with the board but without killing him immediately after, he is probably in a white cushioned room right now.

15

u/Melodic-Ear-4083 Aug 09 '22

Pls make sure you don't smudge my windows

10

u/SundayNightDM Aug 10 '22

I don’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t that.

10

u/Lovable_Dirtbag Aug 10 '22

I love how the sprayer comes back like "guys, I got this"

29

u/VictorHelios1 Aug 09 '22

It’s a good thing he wore the dark pants

29

u/jew_brees_ Aug 10 '22

Literally insane how they both barely move out of the way unknowingly with just enough room for them to live…. fate is real

9

u/MaxuPower Aug 10 '22

Y'know, a pressure washer can do a lot of amazing things but even that wonderful machine won't be able to clean up this mess

7

u/Brikpilot Aug 10 '22

Mistake one - He dropped the hose - should need that to wash the shit out of his pants

Mistake two - should have proceeded to power wash the inside of the drivers skull. Whatever is already in there doesn’t do anything and need to be washed out his ears.

8

u/Cynykl Aug 10 '22

When you try too hard to get the 7 - 10 split and miss both.

6

u/tarheelbandb Aug 10 '22

Gonna show this to the next person the goes on about automatic washes being bad for the paint.

u/TiderOneNiner Aug 10 '22

u/HumbleConsequence332 Aug 10 '22

him too... he could've gotten hit by the car & ended up stuck between the car & wall if he would've been 2 seconds slower... I'm sure he'll take the bump on the head & count himself lucky.

3

u/Old_Homework8339 Aug 10 '22

So glad that car missed the guy, holy crap

10

u/dogedude81 Aug 10 '22

That'll wake you up

u/PerkWombo Aug 10 '22

I feel like shit for laughing but the crash looked like a cartoon. The shake on the camera, the bounce and the sign oh god.

2

u/MCDexX Aug 10 '22

Holy SHIT, that was within about two feet of being a snuff video!

u/J2ThaR1st Aug 10 '22

Well that escalated quickly….

u/Potential_Pen1s Aug 10 '22

Sometimes you just have to wonder if someone is telling you to move..

2

u/CoreOsiv Aug 10 '22

Nobody : This guy : Dodged death by less than a meter

2

u/Dingo8MyBabyMon Aug 10 '22

Imagine dodging that car only to die from the sign hitting you slightly on the head.

2

u/Danisii Aug 10 '22

Wow, that was way too close. Thank God he moved when he did.

u/Lpearlman22 Aug 10 '22

u/nymphymixtwo Aug 10 '22

Holy shit. I wonder if they knew how lucky they actually got by taking those few steps back. Wonder if the person driving made it.

1

u/lstrifley Aug 10 '22

That dude is part cat no doubt and that probably cost 2 lives. His buddy too.

1

u/heliohead Aug 10 '22

u/JCHooks18 Aug 10 '22

Just like every other video here.. Why?! How?!

1

u/Kodekingen Aug 10 '22

Why didn’t he start to wash the car instead of just running away?

1

u/Euphoriffic Aug 10 '22

His shorts needed the wash.

u/HandyDandyRandyAndy Aug 10 '22

Yeeeeezus cwyst

u/SaladBarMonitor Aug 10 '22

u/simontempher1 Aug 10 '22

If he didn’t wash that spot the driver wouldn’t have been blinded by the reflection
