Jeff Gordon Scared The Crap Out Of The Journalist Who Called His Last Prank Fake

Revenge is a dish best served in the back of a speeding cab on a high-speed chase, driven by a convicted felon.

1. This is why you don’t mess with NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon.

2. Remember this? Last March, Jeff Gordon teamed up with Pepsi for an ad called “Test Drive,” where (supposedly) an unsuspecting car salesman was sent on a wild ride.

3. After the ad came out, Travis Okulski, an automotive reporter at Jalopnik, was the first to call out that the ad was “totally 100 percent fake.”

4. So when Jeff Gordon and Pepsi came to Travis’ boss Matt and his friend Ray, and told them they wanted “to prove that this test-drive that happened a year ago was real,” the pair were excited to help them prank their friend.

5. First, they transformed Jeff into an ex-convict cab driver with makeup and fake tattoos.

 

6. Then they send Jeff to pick Travis up from his hotel in a cab.

8. As Jeff had a minor freak-out, the officer got on the loudspeaker and told Jeff and Travis to roll their windows down and put their hands up… only the windows wouldn’t roll down and the doors wouldn’t unlock.

9. Then Jeff took off, and Travis started FREAKING out.

10. As Jeff skidded through mud puddles and pre-constructed barricades, Travis begged for him to stop the car.

11. According to an article Travis wrote about the experience, after what felt like forever (it was actually about 60 seconds), they did a couple doughnuts, then pulled into a garage at full speed and locked up the brakes.

12. The garage was full of Pepsi and cameras. “I can say with total certainty that this second Pepsi Test Drive ad is unequivocally, one hundred percent, totally, absolutely real,” Travis said.

This Quaint Town Can Belong To You…If You Don’t Mind Some Spooky Atmosphere.

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own town? Do you want an entire habitat just for you, your friends, and maybe even a few members of your family to live in peace without the rest of the world interfering? If you don’t mind a possible ghost or two, you’re in luck.

The town of Johnsonville, Connecticut, is up for grabs after being abandoned not once, not twice, but three times.

All you need is $800,000, which is a steal.

The listing on Auction shows off the idyllic side of the historic town.

It’s nearly 62 acres of quaint buildings and endearing atmosphere.

First established in the 1830s, it was a thriving community until the 1950s.

Modernization and a lack of job opportunities led to the town’s abandonment, until a millionaire purchased it in the 1960s.

Ray Schmitt intended to market the town as a tourist attraction, even bringing in more charming buildings like this chapel.

But the idea never really took off and, again, the town was abandoned in 1998 after his death.

It was briefly purchased again by a hotel developer in 2008.

But nothing really came of that investment, and it was put back on the market for a whopping $2.9 million.

No one was interested in that hefty price.

The spooky town was left empty ever since.

Hopefully, the seasonal timing of this new auction will bring new buyers to Johnsonville.

There were no known stories of actual ghostly events, but its quiet abandonment over the years fueled a frightening reputation. That doesn’t mean you can’t make it your own cozy getaway! You just need the cash and nerves of steel.

Race Car Driver Steering Wheel Pops Off

This race car driver is all pumped up and ready to race. He revs his engine and then they’re off. But in just a few seconds, he grabs his steering wheel and the wheel just pops right off. That’s a little scary.

Man Reels As One Seriously GIANT Tapeworm Is Removed From His Nose

To be completely honest, I enjoy a satisfying pimple-popping or blackhead removal video from time to time. The tapeworm that doctors just pulled out of this man’s nose in Australia, though, takes things to a whole new (and disgusting) level.

Tapeworms are parasites that absorb nutrients through their host. The number-one way people become infested with tapeworms is by consuming raw beef, pork, or fish. Most often, they are found living in animal intestines, but to the astonishment of medical staff, this one took up residence in a man’s nasal cavity.

Watch as a doctor grabs hold of a tapeworm with a pair of tweezers and starts pulling…and pulling…and pulling. All in all, the parasite living in this man’s nose was over five feet long.

Scary Japanese Tire Commercial (Video)

This Japanese ad for Autoway tires comes with a health warning and is probably the scariest commercial you’ve ever seen. So, for the love of God, if you have some medical concerns or don’t like scary stuff – don’t watch it! On the other hand, if you enjoy a good jump scare, go ahead – it’s coming:

Jason Voorhees With A Chainsaw Friday The 13th Prank

Jason Voorhees With A Chainsaw Friday The 13th Prank

The Halloween season of fear has come early this fall with Friday the 13th falling out this weekend. To celebrate, popular YouTube pranksters VitalyzdTv, Roman Atwood, and Dennis teamed up to scare unsuspecting bystanders. 

Wearing the iconic Jason Voorhees hockey mask from the Friday the 13th movies, Vitaly–or which ever prankster was behind the mask–brazenly appeared out of the shadows after dark and menacingly started his chainsaw. 

Prank victims didn’t need more than a moment to realize this isn’t a situation to yell and scream.

JUST! RUN!

Vitaly warns that even though the chainsaw didn’t have any blades, viewers still should not try this one at home.

Matt Mina was digging in the sand at the Newport, California beach when the sand suddenly collapsed, and he was buried alive by six feet of sand. Rescue workers and beach goers dug as fast as they could, but the rescue still took half an hour. Amazingly, he was ok and was immediately sent to the hospital.
