Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water... Click above to watch the video after the break

There's something fishy about the video you'll see after the break. No, it's not that we think it was staged, and it doesn't really have a whole lot to do with the car, either... though you could make an argument that the Infiniti FX does have a sort of streamlined Seadoo-ish shape to it.

No, we're referring to the fact that the car ends up sleeping with the fishes after some apparently drunk drivers probe the limits of its off-road adhesion just a wee bit too deeply. As you'll see, the Infiniti manages to extract itself from its saltwater clutches several times before finally succumbing to its watery resting place. At least it makes for a pretty good sandbar.

Watch the results of a beach party gone wrong in the video after the break.

      For 40 years, your fathers before you and your older brothers played on this beach...and they played on it well. But today, the game is different. WE have the 4x4 advantage! It reminds me of the heady days of "Perfect Strangers" and Balki Bartokomous when the world trembled at the sound of our Trabants. Now they will tremble again - at the sight of our flooded automobiles. The order is: Engage the drunken drive! Comrades! Our own lifeguards don't know our full potential for You Tube infamy! They will do everything possible to test us (breathalyzer, forced blood panel), but they will only test their own sober embarrassment. We will leave our Speedos behind! We will pass through the American patrols, past their sonar nets, and lay off their greatest city, Baltimore, and listen to their Lady Gaga sing his rock and roll...while we conduct Chinese fire drills!

      While he's drunk, I think we're actually missing what's going on here. They can't get up the beach (they keep getting stuck). So he's backup up to get momentum, but also being drunk and doing it with too much brovado and stupidity. If you watch closely, you'll see how they're trying to get through the mid section of the beach repeated, but get stuck.

        I agree. I'm surprised when he was on the beach a couple people didn't try to just get behind and help push. The beach didn't look that big and there was definitely enough people to help push the car. And if your going to take a SUV to the beach, take a Rang Rover or an h2, etc. Don't take your parent's Infiniti!

          Beyond that, don't take a RWD SUV to the beach and expect to leave it when your on street tires

          If he could afford a tow truck, he could have afforded AWD.

          If he can afford an Infiniti I'm pretty sure he could have afforded to hire a tow truck... that said, his ego probably couldn't afford that from the looks of it.

      My money's on this being a stolen car... and, yes, I know... that's another post-USSR stereotype, albeit one that actually does hold some water... unlike the FX in the video

      I'm sorry, but if I was that guy standing by the door when he got out, and I noticed he was drunk I would have taken out the keys and tossed them in the back of the car somewhere that he wouldn't find them. He could of hurt somebody! Just plain stupid. Entertaining, but stupid!

      There are quite a few bikinis in the video, but most of them are not on women... But, I was just thinking that I would probably slap the spit out of anyone trying to help this guy out of the water. While the FX is not running and stuck in the water, at least he can't run anyone over on the beach. Hello?
