Driver Encounters High-Speed Car Chase and Blasts Perfectly-Synced Beastie Boys
Oh my god
This is some crazy timing. We’re just going to assume that this driver understood there was a car chase going down right behind him and he intentionally fired the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” which is obviously the perfect soundtrack in this situation. But even with his ideal music cued up, there’s no way this guy could’ve timed the big climax of the song to sync up the moment the dude being chased zooms by with cops hot on his tail. It’s just one of those moments that the universe makes happen because we need to see it on YouTube.
The video has been languishing on the tube for a full year and was just unearthed by the internet. So, that means we have the backstory. A little Google-ing shows the the high-speed chase went down in Caldwell, Idaho. A man named Joshua McNair, 33, of Spokane Valley, Washington was the one fleeing the cops. Police responded to calls about an impaired driver, pulled McNair over and questioned him. At some point, McNair was out of the car and must have known things weren’t going his way because he jumped back behind the wheel and took off.
His tires were eventually taken out by road spikes and police pinned him in when he kept trying to escape. He was brought in on charges of Felony Eluding and Driving Under the Influence.
McNair did not win that day, but the internet did.
