No matter what part of the U.S. you live in, one thing is certain: full size pickup trucks are everywhere, and domestic automakers continue to sell more pickups than any other vehicles. I’m not a truck guy, so I fail to see the appeal; I guess buyers see them as big, safe and practical, even if they are utterly soul-less to drive. I’ve got a pair of videos that seem to prove one thing: being in a truck, even if you’re not behind the wheel, clearly lowers you I.Q. More below.
I won’t ruin the videos, but here’s a friendly reminders: when jumping from the bed of a moving pickup in the desert, check your surroundings first. Also, when you’re using a pickup to tow your buddy over a jump on an office-chair mounted to a skateboard, look where you’re going and beware of anyone who still wears a denim leisure suit in 2011.
