Surely the tyres would have peeled off the rims, there'd be smoke, sparks, screaming... No, I don't think it's real.

I know it's a little immature, but I looked at Arclid's website and found the following sentence quite amusing:


 


"Equipped with the latest blowing equipment, you can rely on a quiet and speedy discharge."


 


...I'll get my coat, shall I...

It says Arclid on the side of the tank, it is a genuine firm based near Arclid traffic lights off J17 on the M6 heading towards Congleton Cheshire [;)]

You wouldn't be able to see the car when sitting in the drivers seat without a front blind spot mirror but I;d have tought you would have heard the tyres screeching on the road.

I don't know what to make of that - looks pretty genuine, but I'd imagine there would be smoke etc....

There's a load of this type of thing doing the rounds across the world with subjects from meteor strikes through bizarre car accidents and people's heads exploding to motorcyclists getting squashed,all basic stuff for even first year students at video production companies.
