For some reason, while teenagers get an abundance of hormones, energy, and angst during puberty, rationality is still years away from making its way to their brains.
We’ve all done stupid things when we were younger, but the difference now is that young punks can broadcast their stupidity to thousands of netizens on the internet.
And while they think they’re impressing their peers, what they’re really doing is making an entire country forcefully place their heads in their palms.
Take these two young girls, for instance.
2 YPs Sat on an Audi Bonnet As It Moved With the Caption ‘COVID Got Us Like’
A video of two young girls sitting on the bonnet of a moving Audi has been circulating on social media.
The video was first shared on Facebook stories, but later reposted on the Facebook group All Singapore Stuff.
In the video, a white Audi can be seen driving down the road of a landed residential estate.
This in itself isn’t consequential, of course.
What was significant, was that there were two young girls lying on the hood of the car while it was moving.
A man, who was likely taking the video, laughed as he saw these girls pass him by on the bonnet of the Audi, like it was a perfectly normal sight.
The Audi then comes to a stop just before a stop line, and the short, eight-second video ends.
Curiously, the youths who uploaded the video added the caption “COVID got us like”, which raises more questions than the coronavirus itself when it first emerged.
Does it mean the Covid-19 pandemic got them so depressed that the only way they could feel excitement was to sit on a moving car?
Or has Covid got them like, well, stupid?
We have reached out to the coronavirus for comment, but it just made us sick and ran away.
This didn’t seem to occur to the driver and the two girls, but this is clearly a very dangerous thing to do.
Even though they were holding on tightly to the bonnet, the car could have braked suddenly for whatever reason, and flung the two girls on the road.
The girls could also have fallen off without the driver noticing, leading to an accident.
Not to mention, if the Audi got into an accident with another passing vehicle, the girls were without any protective covering nor seatbelt, and would have been seriously injured.
Netizens pointed this out, and criticised the youths for their reckless behaviour.
Others pointed out that the car’s number plate was visible and that the authorities might punish the driver for his actions.
One day, these youths will grow up and probably realise that this wasn’t the smartest thing to do.
Till then, let’s hope they don’t hop on any other moving cars.
