Driver Nearly Kills Cyclist, But His Excuse is the Best Ever

If you think 'he told me to do it' is effective, use this excuse to get an assured speechless response.

Cyclist getting cut up by motorist – something that happens every day. If you’re in London, there appears to be some sort of attritional warfare going down, particularly between the taxis and the two wheelers. Such scrapes normally end in apology or unsolvable argument, with plenty of swearing and hand gesturing, but somewhere either in or very near Liverpool (judging by the accents), things have taken a turn to the truly bizarre.

Basically our pedalling hero is cut up by a motorist desperate to get somewhere fast. He then catches up with his antagonist and taps on his window, but what occurs is certainly the weirdest traffic incident to ever come out of Merseyside – possibly anywhere. Luckily this moment was captured for all eternity by the cyclist’s helmet cam.

Parrot Dude
How can he say this with such a straight face?
