Obvious!? Of course! >:) But I suspect it was a failed suicideattempt. 8-)
Only that the distance was a bit misscalculated. If the pickup was a bit closer to the tree
it would have crushed his head. What a wonderful death! >:) >:) Killed by an avenging palmtree - - If u try to pull me over I kill ya! >:) >:) >:)

Hmmmmm!? Come to think about it. Wouldn't it be better if he got his shotgun and shot the tree dead? When he is assured of that its gone to a better place without stupid humans around he can finnish himself more ... ok - think I'm gone too far now :(|) 8-) >:) >:)

Can someone tell me what they actually tried to do?
Did the plan that the car would drive away as the three fell or what?
Can't see how so many people can be that stupid at the same time.. >:)

What the? How about reinforcing the truck's structure first, if you really want to pull the palm tree directly into the flatbed >:)

What I found most amazing was that no one ran over to make sure the driver was okay. They'll eventually end up as Darwin award winners!

the poor truck, before it was murdered by the evil tree it sounded like it was going to die of a heartattack

And the bigger fail is that the truck is directed towards fence and it has nowhere to go

Reminds me of the Joke
Guy waiting in a waiting room
Nurse says do you want to see the doctor
Guy says Depends, what kind of doctor is he
Nurse says he's a foot doctor
Guys says I'd like to see a man that tall
Just then a 12 inch man walks out the room, Take off your shoes and socks he says.
So the guy takes off his shoes and socks
The Dr takes a look and says naw there's nothing wrong with you
The guy says now take off YOUR shoes and socks
So the Dr takes off his shoes and socks. so what do you think he says.
The guys says I don't know, I've seen bigger feet on a bird
And the Dr starts running around the room flapping his arms and whistling really loud.
So the guy left............

Well what the hell did you think was going to happen! You people are weird!
