Close Call! BMW Almost Collateral Damage of Near-perfect Driveway Drift

BMW almost hit by drifting car pulling up

Hey, we’ll give the guy credit for the drift. If only he had stuck the landing. RIP garage door.Β 

We came across this video and we’re not going to lie: It cracked us up. Okay, the driver isn’t being an entirely responsible, blah blah, but it is very entertaining.

The video was posted on the Facebook page of Ghetto Society. It shows a car ready to slide into the party, and then misses it by thaaat much. And the caption is perfect.

Ooh. So close. We have to give credit, Despite the demise of the garage door, this was one solid and frankly, pretty kickass, drift.

Naturally, the comments to the video were pure comedy gold. Many remarked on how the BMW seemed to be touched by an angel.Β John Schnyder posted “Boy, that Beamer escaped death. IT WASN’T ITS TIME TO GO!”Β 

Others just had to give credit where credit is due, it was a hell of a maneuver. Jeremy Gardner said “Don’t let this distract you from the fact a front-wheel-drive car just drifted perfectly past that car and missed.” With Stevie White adding, “If he would have actually stopped it would have been the perfect drift.”

Of course we’re happy to see the BMW escaped being the target of the drift gone wild, but we especially appreciate how cool the close call looked.

But fellas, don’t tempt fate and try it again.
