Click above to view video after the jump

If we had a turbocharged BMW E46 M3 that kicked out 630 horsepower to the rear wheels, we'd be pretty damn proud of it. In fact, we'd likely head right over to our old man's house and take him for a spin. Hopefully he wouldn't react to our ass-kicking, super-tuned Bimmer like the dad in this video did. Watch and listen as the young man behind the wheel barely engages the accelerator and his old man freaks the hell out. The entire 1:28 is basically a profanity-laced tribute to the scared parent with no need for speed. Our favorite part is when Dad puts his hand on the dash and begs his offspring to slow down. Classic. Hit the jump to see for yourself, unless you're easily offended by swearing, because every third word could be censored on broadcast television. Thanks for the tip, everyone!

      I have a coworker who bought his teenage son a used BMW. The son crashed the car and died. Now, that's a wound that will never heal for that father.

      I know another guy, a dentist, whose teenage daughter took his new Lexus SC too fast around a highway exit, flipped it, and scraped her left face down to the bone. She looked worse that Half-Face from the Batman movie. She'll be going through multiple reconstruction surgeries rest of her life, and she will never look the same.

      Fast cars don't scare me. Idiots with fast cars scare the hell out of me.

      Sounds like me when I rode in a Nissan GT-R. When you're not behind the wheel, there's an insuppressible feeling that you are going to die, even if you know in your mind that you're perfectly safe. You just can't help but be more than a little bit unnerved when the car's doing 50mph towards a stationary object only 30 feet away, even if you know the car's brakes and tires are more than capable of stopping in time.

      The best thing is that from all that the kid, who sounds like underage, was happy because all that was going to make a good video... LOL LOL LOL

      Nice car... where did the kid get the money??? Allowance?

        Sadly enough, more likely than not. He seems like a spoiled brat, and Pop sounds like he's more intrested in being the cool guy than being an actual father.

      If that really is the kids' father, I don't want to get to know this kid now, let alone in another 10 or 15 years.

      Nothing against the M3 but this video is hardly a decent demonstration of its best qualities. Rather, the vid is a set-up to some goofy "I'm so impressed with your ride" garbage. And, at that, there's too much traffic around for my comfort zone for any kind of demonstration - even a lame one such as this -and especially so with an obviously inexperienced driver at the wheel.

      I want that minute and a half back...

      The kid needs to learn how to shift properly. Nice car though.

      I would have been really impressed if this was on a track. Then he could have actually opened it up. Sort of like that video from last week or so with Ricardo Patrese driving his wife on a track (Link below). I'd love to see this car on a track, but it really just makes me angry to see him risking lives on the street.
