The title of this post alone, should tell you that this video is gonna’ lean towards the humorous side. But I bet you think that it’ll simply be a load of crap and laughs! I mean let’s face it…when was the last time you saw Chris Rock being serious about anything? I’ll tell you this much though, this comical interpretation of what to do and not to do when a cop pulls you over, is right on the money and may just keep you from getting your ass kicked!
Here’s the thing folks…when a police officer pulls you over, it’s not because they’re bored and want to make your life miserable, it’s most probably because you broke the law in some way or another. And 9 out of 10 times, you know exactly what you’ve done wrong, so there’s really no point in arguing. Just stay in your car, turn down the music, don’t make any sudden movements or reach for your glove box before the officer instructs you to, don’t start sweating, be polite or shut the F%#@ up and lastly…do as they say!
I lived in the US long enough to know, “never, ever contradict, bribe, belittle, be rude, name drop who you know, boast about who your daddy is or try to outrun a cop.” For crying out loud, it’s only common sense! Oh, but off the record…I’ve also lived in a few third world countries long enough to know that you could pretty much do all of the not-to-do’s above and get away with most ;). But that’s not the message I’m trying to spread here!
Here are the main things you want to remember the next time you get behind the wheel (according to Chris Rock):
- Obey the law
- Use common sense
- Stop immediately
- Turn that shit off
- Be polite
- Shut the fuck up
- Get a white friend
- Don’t ride with a mad woman
But don’t take my word for it. Go ahead and watch what this “Rock-in'” comedian has to say in this funny but accurate video. Strangely enough, it’s rather educational!
