The harbingers of international diplomacy at the Daily Mail have given us their most recent exhibit yet: video of a Mercedes-Benz trapped in dried concrete after its driver attempted to pass through a street under construction in Guangdong.
The video shows the results of a persistent driver who wouldn’t stop. A long trail left by the driver shows the Mercedes-Benz kept sinking deeper into the wet concrete until it was finally trapped in place. Reported as having occurred at night when the driver ignored warnings not to drive down this road, the video shows workers trying to dig the car out with a jackhammer during the day long after the concrete had set.
Nine News World reports this instance of schadenfreude happened in Guangdong recently, a popular sentiment welcomed by Chinese netizens in the classless world of China that does not officially distinguish between the rich and the poor.
Here’s the video:
While “stuck in traffic” appears to be the go-to pun for titles by reporting news outlets, there’s still a few more left for those wanting to partake in schadenfreude appreciation:
- That’s what you get for always having a middle-of-the-road opinion.
- Ready! Set! Cement!
- The Fast and the Viscous
- The saddest case of a car “burning rubber” in order to get from 0 to 60 …. millimeters
At the very least, the driver will never forget where he parked the car.
