Thanks to the wonderful world of YouTube tutorials, you can learn about almost anything. Even how to drive a car.
Using knowledge from watching YouTube videos, an 8-year-old boy successfully drove his sister to McDonald’s to get some food.
At approximately 8 p.m. on Sunday, an 8-year-old boy and his little sister snuck out of their home in East Palestine, Ohio after their father went to bed early and mother fell asleep on the couch. The kids managed to get into their father’s work van and took off on a journey to every kids happy place: McDonald’s.
According to Fox 8 in Cleveland, the boy drove a mile through four intersections and over a set of railroad tracks to the restaurant, making multiple turns in the process. Witnesses say the boy obeyed all traffic laws and even drove the speed limit. (It’s unclear how we reached the pedals, though.)
Luckily, a family friend also happened to be at McDonald’s when the kids showed up, and they notified their grandparents. When police arrived, the little boy revealed that he learned to drive by watching videos on YouTube.
Nobody was injured in the joyride, and the kids both got to eat their cheeseburgers before cops arrived. It is unclear if they got a happy meal or if they ordered off the dollar menu.
I used to take my moms car when I was 14…but 8? HOW DID HE REACH THE PEDALS?
