'Good deeds don't go unpunished,' demonstrated Mother Nature, or Jack Frost.


24-year-old Matthew Bove hit Twitter Monday morning to share a spectacular photo, which depicts an impossible stroke of bad luck. Or this dude dipped overcharged his karma bank recently. Either way Bove made the safe decision to leave his car overnight by a bar him and his friends had spent their evening at. So Kudos to Bove for making the right call.


What you see here is the icy aftermath of what's called the lake-effect phenomenon. This takes place when a cold front absorbs moisture as it passes over a big, warm body of water, and then tends to produce absurd amounts of snowfall.


For a moment there we thought this might be the latest in a string of prior Jimmy Kimmel vs. John Krasinski & Emily Blunt pranks. In case you were unaware those two star-studded teams have been exchanging Christmas-wrapped cars for blows in an epic ongoing prank war.

Here's something to make you smile.

A British man has created a drivable, adult-size version of the classic Little Tikes car. And it could be all yours if you get the winning bid on Ebay.

The colorful car was created by Mechanic John Bitmead and his brother Geoff back in 2013, and has been used to raise money for children's charities across the country.

The car is listed at £21,500, or $33,264, and has about 5,000 miles on it.

Florida Man took the night off from causing mayhem, and Florida Woman took his place.

Whitney Beall, a 23-year-old woman, was arrested this weekend for drunk driving after using the mobile app Periscope to live-stream her entire ride.

"I'm super drunk, I don't even know how to explain it," she says to start the 11-minute broadcast below. The entire broadcast lasted over 40 minutes.

With tips from viewers and one officer using their own Periscope account to spot landmarks, police were able to safely stop Beall.

"Officers advised that they smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Beall, her speech was slow; her eyes were bloodshot and glossy," a Lakeland PD Facebook post said.

It seems Florida Woman got the attention she wanted. And luckily no one was hurt.

Using only actual paper and dozens of animators, PES made this gorgeous stop motion, flipbook-like story of the evolution of Honda.

Sure, it's advertising, but it's a thing of real creative beauty that looks so well-crafted in its handmade style.

They even made a really neat behind-the-scenes video:



PES is no stranger to beautiful, viral videos. They were the ones behind 2008's Western Spaghetti:



And the similar, but still lovely, Fresh Guacamole from 2013:

A variety of car manufactures have begun to make the car less of a viewing obstacle when you're driving around all those gnarly sk8r bois and CNET has put together a great round up of all the latest innovations.

One of the dumbest things highlighted in the video is a Mercedes Benz marketing campaign from a few years ago.





Regardless, we're so close to the impossible dream.

When you have nothing but open, largely barren desert and cars, you make fun where you can.

The new thing in Saudi Arabia is to video your car rolling along of its own accord while you do any manner of thing you want on the hood, roof, back or being dragged behind it.

You also need to have this song playing, which Google probably incorrectly translates as Yesterday, My Heart Carefree.

You don't even have to have a car, per se.



Here's my favorite:



This isn't the first car-based meme that has come out of Saudi Arabia. Last year, doing insane things while balanced on two tires was all the rage.

Wait for it… the singing isn’t the only thing that blows.

Four friends were having the time of their lives on a little road trip singing Player’s “Baby Come Back,” when one of the tires exploded ruining everything.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but they appear to be a bit shaken up by the incident.

And despite the selfie stick disaster causing the camera to spiral out of control, they still managed to get their 15 minutes of fame on YouTube.

Phew!

“We’re not posting that video,” one of the girls says at the end.

Famous last words.
