Spectacular pole mishap – Click above to watch video

Spending all day blogging from the comfort of our mothers' basements and/or top-secret Dr. No-style lairs, we sometimes forget that there's a world out there filled with people who engage in truly questionable things. And then we get a video like this and we wonder, "Is that really what's going on outside?"

We're not sure what this driver was trying to do, but when he or she decides to kill a pole, they do a commendably thorough job of it. Follow the jump for the security camera footage.

      My favorite part is when the trunk flies open =) Probably a stub was still left of the pole, and was tearing up the undercarriage... sounds must've been horrendous!

      People who do dumb stuff like this shouldn't be allowed to drive again. Ever.

      Crap, I've been caught! Knew I shouldn't have had that fourth Manhattan at lunch the other day...

      I'm guessing that car was stolen and the driver high. Bet something even cooler happened off-camera.

      Even if they did get away, they probably left their license plate at the scene with the front bumper.

      This person should NEVER be allowed to operate a motor vehicle again. But they will ... illegally.

      I didn't realize how much damage those polls could do. I think that it might have been a stolen car and possibly an underage driver. (if drugs were also involved I wouldn't be surprised.

      Someone just caught her boyfriend cheating and decided to take his car out for a "joyride"?

      Sheesh, there's drunk, and then there's "how the hell were they even able to walk to the car and insert the key in the first place."
