There is no way to describe that video other than delightful, right? Watching people drive in the snow is one of those things that is fun when you are not one of said people. Hearing them dig out of spots, spinning their tires and cursing at Mother Nature while you are drinking a cup of hot chocolate in your house is one of life’s simple joys. Same goes for when your side of the highway is cleared out like the Cowboys O-Line is blocking for you, while the other side is more backed up than Randy Marsh during an internet porn ban. Yeah you know it’s fucked up laughing at other peoples’ misery, but they can in turn laugh at your misery when the tables are inevitably turned. That’s the yin and the yang of life. Plus Christmas music makes everything roughly a billion times better. Either happier, more sentimental, or in this case funnier.
But the best part of this video is that the cars were basically characters. You had the two buses, the pickup truck with ladders, and even the snow plow losing its shit and being weaved in and out of the storyline. Not even Pixar could have painted such a masterpiece. And then we have the cop car. If you didn’t lose your shit when that cop car started skidding, you have no sense of humor. Seeing the 5-0 slip and slide took me back to my greatest Grand Theft Auto escapes where I put the cops in such a pickle that they didn’t even know what to do with their car so would be stuck in reverse as they admired a criminal mastermind setting up his escape from a 6 star police chase. In fact I am going to go dig up whatever copy of Grand Theft Auto I have laying around my house and play it right now. The only question I have is was there an update that made one of the radio stations Christmas music? Because that would be fucking AWESOME.
P.S. The fact this video took place in Montreal is one of the biggest disappointments in my life. If Eskimos have 50 words for snow, the canucks should have at least a solid 27 and 10 car pile ups should not occur after what amounts to a Canadian dusting. Be better, Canadia. Be better.
