Folks, I have some bad news. “Carpool Karaoke” is bad. It’s very bad.
Until now, however, I have stayed (relatively) silent on this matter. I can no longer do that now that the dreaded “Carpool Karaoke” is imperiling the lives of our nation’s youth.
According to the Daily Dot, Travis Carpenter was in the midst of a three-hour drive when he decided to flip on his dashcam and do some singing (to be clear, he was not filming on his phone and had both hands on the wheel). He started hydroplaning in the heavy rain and flipped the vehicle.
From his YouTube description:
My car slid sideways, and then was completely backwards by the time I slid off the road and went down a small hill. I hit a mile marker sign (230) on my way off the road. Here are two of the most amazing parts: I sustained NO injuries. Not even a scratch. And my car took NO mechanical damage and is completely driveable. Only body damage.
“Carpool Karaoke” is a menace to society. It must be stopped.
