This is a video of a guy stopping his truck with his feet because he must have seen it on a cartoon once. How he hasn't run off the edge of a cliff and hovered there for a second before plummeting to his death is beyond me.

A police video camera captured images of a 24-year-old Detroit-area man who tried using his feet to stop a runaway pickup truck with faulty brakes and caused multiple collisions, exhibiting "moronic decision making," a Roseville police official said Thursday.


Witnesses said the man reached speeds of about 40 mph and was able to stop the car on at least two occasions. The car eventually struck four vehicles.

"He said he was going to fix the brakes when he got home," Berlin said.

AHAHAHHAHHHAHAHAH -- IT WASN'T JUST A SINGLE TIME!! Dude lost his brakes, was able to stop the car, but then kept going. Now that -- that's dedication. Or...something. Something that shouldn't be rewarded with continuing to live.

Hit the jump for the how did you not die a long time ago?

Thanks to Barney Rubble (WIN!) who, despite his dum-dum appearance on the show, is smart to know the secret is using your bare feet.
