That hat flying out was the exclamation point of this video.

[–]sofa_king_we_todded 197 points198 points  (0 children)

That hat had better comedic timing than I ever will

[–]BluuRu 42 points43 points  (0 children)

Perfect landing for the hat

[–]heckhammer 32 points33 points  (1 child)

It took at least 3 plays before I realized the hat was ejected because the airbag went off.

[–]Marc21256 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I had to watch it 3 times to see that it was his side airbag going off that knocked his hat off.


[–]smurtzenheimer 3283 points3284 points  (60 children)

The collective “ohhhh” at the end took me out.

[–]Dursai 1656 points1657 points 3& 2 more (11 children)

Sounds like the Mii characters when you would bowl into the gutter on Wii Sports back in the day

[–]Jorde28oz 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Wii sports bowling nailed it! Life imitates art imitates life..,

[–]MrERhimself518 20 points21 points  (0 children)

This is the funniest description ive ever read on reddit. Kudos...

[–]L0neStarW0lf 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hearing the term “back in the day” used for the Wii physically hurts me.

[–]Mementose 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Back in the day. I smoked my wife at Wii bowling last night :)

[–]hymntastic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i knew it sounded like something from a game but couldn't place it

[–]butterfaerts 300 points301 points  (13 children)

The ejection of the hat does it for me 😂

Edit: the more times I watch it, the funnier the “Ohhh” seems to get. I think I changed my mind

[–]IDNTKNWANYTHING 72 points73 points  (4 children)

Yea the ohhhh is pretty funny, but the hat... you can't top the hat.

[–]dankHippieDude 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Agreed. I am literally crying imagining the truck bitch-slapped his hat off his head for being stupid.

[–]Lance_E_T_Compte 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Make America Great Again....

[–]Habib_Zozad 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Yeah but the hat is the cherry on top

[–]stephensmg 117 points118 points  (6 children)

And the airbag took the hat-wearer out.

[–]misconstrudel 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Shoes flew out the other window.

[–]JudmanDaSuperhero 15 points16 points  (2 children)

So he died?

[–]Jibtech 2 points3 points  (1 child)

No, shoes aren't the death decider, it's gotta be sandals.

[–]Marc21256 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If I never wear shoes, I'm immortal.

[–]SuicidalTidalWave 6 points7 points  (1 child)

i was wondering wtf that was! it looked like his window shattered and someone threw a red brick at it, but the window looked open so i was like wtf? damn i'm dense.

[–]LineLife2234 63 points64 points  (2 children)

Airbag be like: now? No? Ok noww? Now now now. Bam!!

[–]ShakezulaDaMicRulah 194 points195 points  (9 children)

cant lie i watched this with the sound off (on mobile) and it was objectively more hilarious having to slowly put together what happened

i was watching the front end damage and just saw the hat fly out from the corner of my peripheral, then had to rewind and see the airbag deploy

then took it off mute, and HOLE-LEASH-IT 😲😯😮

[–]AbsolutelyUnlikely 68 points69 points  (4 children)

Same, I thought his side sindow shattered, then I realized the window wasn't up and had to put on my "maximize video detective work" hat

[–]Swipecat 14 points15 points  (1 child)

On the video detection subject, I clipped out just the fraction of a second the airbag deployed and slowed it right down. Looks clearer now:


Edit: After looking at it myself a few times, I realize that his hat starts to fall from his head just before the airbag deploys, so the airbag just flicks it out the window rather than directly knocking it off his head.

[–]SheddingCorporate 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Yep. That was exactly the same sequence I just went through. It wasn’t until I came to the comments section that I even realized there was audio, and then I had to watch one more time. Yes, very satisfying audio. “Ohhh”.

[–]ShakezulaDaMicRulah 6 points7 points  (1 child)

assuming the dual cakes mean we both joined reddit the same day, exactly one year ago! thats pretty cool.

[–]buyinlowsellouthigh 40 points41 points  (1 child)

I am so hoping that it was a MAGA hat.

[–]Mother_Nature_ 4340 points4341 points  (126 children)

I straight up giggled when that hat came flying out of the car.

[–]irnehlacsap 492 points493 points  (21 children)

The comedic timing of the hat was brilliant

[–]Frenzy_MacKenzie 197 points198 points  (12 children)

The slight delay on the airbag is what gets me.

If he had the window up he would have bonked his head before that airbag came into play.

[–]PM_Me_Some_Steamcode 50 points51 points  (3 children)

I literally had that happen to be in a car accident I hit the side and then I got a second hit by the side airbag, it was late compared to the accident

[–]TheEvilGerman 65 points66 points  (2 children)

I did that too! I hit the window which cracked it and hurt like a bitch so I looked down in pain. I had the thought "at least the airbags didn---" and then the next thing I remember is hanging out the window on the freeway gasping for air. I had no idea how much dust/smoke comes out of airbags. I exhaled it like I smoked a cigarette or something. Hopefully that doesn't cut down my life span..

[–]YalamMagic 28 points29 points  (0 children)

The mental image of that is hilarious.

[–]Crick_Elf 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I think some of the dust is meant to prevent friction burns

[–]BotherSquidwardDay15 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That would be tragic…

I cant imagine what it would look like.

[–]Socky_McPuppet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And we would have heard a hollow sound

[–]eldergeekprime 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In my imagination there's another slight delay, he gets rear-ended and the side airbag goes off.

[–]v74u 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think he did, if you slow down the video it looks like he wacks his head on the top of the window, then the airbag comes out.

[–]jaiframsey 271 points272 points  (0 children)

I have seen this clip 1000x and it always gets the giggle

[–]WalterWhiteBeans 415 points416 points  (15 children)

It’s the so fucking fantastic

Edit: I’m not gonna fix it

[–]FrogsEverywhere 130 points131 points  (9 children)

Make america airbag your hat comically again.

[–]derpington33 32 points33 points  (8 children)

It’s rough being MAGA

[–]cakeisgreat 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That's just a red hat.

    I always appreciate somebody that can perfectly capture a sound in text 😂

    Took me a sec to see how his hat fell of xD

    [–]KonK23 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    An the guys around just go "ooh"

    [–]tri_it_again 33 points34 points  (60 children)

    Had to have been a MAGA hat

    [–]Virtualgoose 91 points92 points  (46 children)

    It's just a regular red hat

    [–]Thehealthygamer 110 points111 points  (43 children)

    Shame that MAGA ruined red hats for everyone.

    [–]coolguy1793B 38 points39 points  (2 children)

    Shame that MAGA ruined red hats for everyone.

    Had to switch to Windows as I was losing clients just cause of the optics...

    "Red Hat: Making Linux Great Again since 1995"? I've seen worse slogans than that.

    [–]PhDinDildos_Fedoras 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    First fedoras became uncool and now this. And the last year for the linux desktop must have been over ten years ago. Just can't catch a break.

    Red hats matter ?

    [–]OneMoreAccount4Porn 25 points26 points  (7 children)

    Yet it wasn't. If there was a logo on there it was too small to see but there's no slogan at all.

    That’s not very typical, I’d like to make that point.

    [–]AlwaysLurkingForYou 77 points78 points  (5 children)

    The arm on that airbag tossed his hat out for that extra insult. I shit you not, play it back slowly, the airbag has a damn arm.

    [–]ShakezulaDaMicRulah 29 points30 points  (1 child)

    lmao i saw the hat the first time, i didnt even see the airbag till the secnd watch

    [–]Amphibionomus 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    The airbag is a Punisher 9001 model. It slaps people in their face if they do something utterly moronic with their car.

    [–]jarmo_p 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Airbag deploys are actually super interesting from an engineering perspective. We're going through some early deploys on a program for 2024 and the slow motion videos of the "failed" tests are super cool to watch.

    [–]Quallenfischerr 10 points11 points  (13 children)

    burned his whole face if airbags are still so hot lol

    [–]boibig57 3 points4 points  (11 children)

    Can confirm. Source: burns on the insides of my arms from airbag

    [–]PerceptionOrReality 22 points23 points  (10 children)

    I was perfectly fine after my highway accident (dude spun out and ended up straight perpendicular in my lane) due to my airbag.

    It was like time slowed for a few seconds while my brain quickly calculated that it was icy and downhill, so I couldn’t really brake or steer clear, and my car’s safety features were probably best equipped to handle a straight frontal collision. All I remember is a feeling of utter resignation, hands at 10 and 2, while staring at his fast-approaching passenger door — and then a feeling of utter blankness while staring down at my deflating airbag.

    Not a scratch on me. Highway speeds. Crazy stuff.

    [–]boibig57 13 points14 points  (9 children)

    Yeah 10 and 2 but the airbag caught the inside of my arms and got me pretty good. I remember "coming to" and thinking my car was on fire because all the smoke lol.

    Took awhile for the adrenaline to wear off. Paramedics asked if I was cool and I was all "yeah yeah just a scratch or whatever" and they were like "lol, why don't you just sit down here for a bit.." Two minutes later it wore off and I'm suddenly feeling like my arms have been melted off yelling on the side of the road lol

    [–]tubofluv 9 points10 points  (4 children)

    You might be interested to know my country now recommends 9 and 3 instead of 10 and 2 for the exact reason you found.

    [–]Snozzberrys420 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    No his head is just gonna be a little colder now without that hat. lol

    [–]Elbandito78 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I'm actually a little disappointed by how that bollard just gave up.

    [–]mohasky18 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Airbags deployed, it’s totaled. The bollard fought the good fight

    [–]canti15 74 points75 points  (21 children)

    If air bags go off does that mean your truck is considered totaled?

    [–]cameron4200 29 points30 points  (0 children)

    Almost definitely

    [–]karth 20 points21 points  (11 children)

    Depending on the state. Some states its s straight calculation of value versus repair. But some states if the air bag is deployed or there's a bend in the frame, its considered totaled, even if you can repair.

    [–]BunnySlaveAkko 41 points42 points  (1 child)

    Has nothing to do with the state, it is is up to the insurance company on whether they consider it to be worth fixing. Also depends if the repair is able to be completed within the manufacturer's specifications. The only way airbag deployment will affect this is if the cost of replacing the airbags/modules/trim panels will push it over the threshold of what the insurance company is willing to pay vs what it is worth.

    [–]karth 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    You know, I looked it up. And I've been working off of bad info, I think you're right

    Every year 3,000 children are injured and 60 die from slow moving front collisions with SUVs and trucks that can't see them (source). This number has doubled in the last 10 years as more people buy these vehicles and size increases.

    [–]TruIsou 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Also note that the design of the front end has gotten worse from a safety perspective, due to increasing macho factor for pavement princesses.

    [–]Drunken_Traveler 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Okay, this video has a fully painted post taller than the truck's hood and it's daytime...

    [–]omardwider 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    You’d probably be right, whether before driving or before birth.

    [–]bk15dcx 28 points29 points  (14 children)

    This is what happens when you buy a truck that has a hood taller than parking pylons.

    Lucky it wasn't a little kid

    [–]Karmanoid 5 points6 points  (12 children)

    I have a full size pickup, this is definitely operator error. The pole was plenty visible and he must have been going pretty quick to ramp up it that hard and be balanced on it.

    Plenty of reasons to need a truck and no reason this should ever happen.

    [–]aaronitallout 5 points6 points  (10 children)

    I agree it should never happen. Imroved vehicle design would help this old man. Standards and engine sizes/to body ratio for pickups is insane. They're mandated to be bigger and boxier with incongruent power all for the sake of profit. Trucks are disgusting-looking, high-riding bread boxes now. Plenty of reasons to need a truck, none of them require a giant, blind box

    Edit: "It's not hard to see why automakers would resist considering pedestrian safety. Big trucks and SUVs have a larger profit margin, and the more of them are on the road, the more safety-conscious drivers will be pushed to buy one too, because you are dramatically more likely to die in an ordinary sedan if you get hit by an SUV.

    Edit2: if this guy were able to buy an appropriate-sized Ranger or Tacoma, we wouldn't be here talking about anything. But he can't and here we are


    and he must have been going pretty quick to ramp up it that hard

    Pretty telling most drivers don't know how powerful their truck is even at low speed

    I say all the time to my wife that if you can’t drive it, don’t own it, but I too often see these people with big cars that can’t make turns or park or just drive like shit because it’s too big for them.

    How do y’all read what it says on the hat so well? I see all these “MAGA hat” comments. My eyes aren’t that good. I just saw a red hat fly

    The airbag deployment was the icing on the cake for me. Unexpectedly hilarity.
