Warning: This is not going to end well.

What you're about to see is a young man driving a very fast car – an E46 BMW M3, it appears – down a deserted road in the desert. We can't say for certain where it took place, but it looks a lot like Arizona. There are just enough elevation changes to make the road a bit challenging for the inexperienced.

Judging from the result of this boy's escapades, inexperienced pretty much sums it up. There's a blind corner, a road that drops away before a sweeping left turn and way too much speed. And then there's an airbag. Fortunately, it seems the driver walked away without serious injuries. The car, on the other hand, didn't fare nearly as well.

Scroll down below to watch the video. *Update: Video link fixed.

      The airbag deployed for his safety, and the hoodie deployed for his shame

      Anyone who drives and holds a steering wheel like that is a complete idiot. Anyone who glides through apexes without letting off the gas before entering them is also an idiot. Anyone who isn't acquainted with the road and doesn't know where to brake is an idiot. And finally, this guy is the epitome of the word "moron". What is perhaps most amusing is that he holds his thumbs out, which is the correct way to grasp the wheel... Yet he does it in the wrong spots on the wheel. Jesus.

      I hope the insurance company sees that and refuses to pay.

      And this is why we have high insurance rates, because of ******* kids like this.

        Well, not just because of kids like this. I'd say it's partly the fault of his parents, assuming he didn't find and steal the keys without their permission. But having once been a teenager in cars driven by other teenagers, I can tell you someone of that age will find a way to drive too fast and generally beat the living crap out of literally car put in their control. I had a cousin who, at that age, seemed to have a death wish whenever he got behind the wheel of his hand-me-down late 70s Buick LeSabre, which isn't exactly a fast car.

      I'm not a racing driver by any stretch of the imagination, but I've taken my beat up old Audi on some twisty roads and straight from the beginning of the video I was scared for the guy. From the 10 and 2 hands to the leaning forward driving position, it just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing from the start. And not that he's "inexperienced". I'm inexperienced, and even I can tell that's **** driving. He clearly jumped in one day, having never done anything like this before and said, "hey I've played Forza TONS, I know how to do this."

        Agreed. 10 and 2 in a BMW? Of all the times for this kid to actually remember crappy driving school guidelines.

      He's lucky he only took himself out and not an oncoming car. He was all over the road well before he was off the road, so unless that was a closed course (which I doubt) somebody ought to think twice before letting him back on the road. And it should be in a used Aveo if then.

        I think that pisses me off the most. He was treating the entire road like his own personal race track. I motorcycle, and people who jump lanes like that scare me the most.

      There's pretty much nothing about this video that isn't a fail. The weather maybe, that's about it. Another rich kid with his first hand-me-down auto 3 series thinks his Xbox skills are worthy enough for him to cram up on a steering wheel and drive 75mph through some twisties. Nice job, bro.

        You will be surprised how many of the people on this site think that they can handle a high power car. Power demands respect. People are idiots for trying to exploit a performance car's capability on public roads.

      Being a motorcyclist who enjoys not dying in head on collisions, I'm glad to see Youngster McCan'tStayInHisLane is no longer with car.

      This is what happens when Justin Bieber tries to drive hard. What kind of driving position is that, anyway? Looks like he's been driving for all of 10 minutes. And my god... was he going for crash points or what? Who carries speed like that over HILLS where you can't see the exit? Oh but here's the real kicker... the accident inevitably will be investigated by the Highway Patrol. Guess what the "main factor" of the crash will be? Excessive Speed. On and on the ridiculous propeganda machine will grid... Every d1psh1t on the planet will be chanting "speed kills" for all of eternity, not knowing or giving two sh1ts about the reality of these situations. Driving with an idiot behind the wheel is the exact cause of these accidents. Speed has nothing to do with it.

        Well, they are correct. If he was driving 15 mph he wouldn't have crashed. Sad part of the story is why we let people drive with skill level that forces them to drive 15 mph in order not to crash. Or we let them legally drive vehicles that will crash in any corner if driven over 25 mph. Now, that's whole another field of pumpkins ...

      If his parents are halfway smart and decent, which I sincerely doubt, the next car he should get until he can purchase his own should be a 1st gen Prius or a Geo Metro, preferably in pink.

      A.K.A. a case study in douchebaggery.
