Holy cow that was close.

This Saudi Arabian man is just wistfully walking along, captured by a closed caption TV. He's probably thinking about what crazy thing to do on top of his car while it drives itself.

Then, BAM! Pane of glass! Surprise shard!

It really was an act of intense and incredible coincidence that kept him alive.

Thank your lucky stars, dude and get back in your car!

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.

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.

Saudi Arabia will continue its tradition of separate and unequal when it begins construction on a women-only city next year, designed to boost the economy while meeting the stringent standards of the country's Sharia law. (Women are allowed to work in an expanded capacity, so long as "their essential duties of homemaking should not be neglected.")

No word on when women will be granted the right to drive.

(Heads up -- video is extremely graphic.)

The latest hobby among bored teens in Saudi Arabia -- where strict Muslim customs limit their opportunities to really let loose -- is drifting, and it's all fun and games until someone loses a limb. Or their life:

[It's] the "sport" of accelerating like you're trying to break the light barrier and then slamming on the brakes. Doing so creates two possible outcomes: 1) having the vehicle slide around like a crazy-cool doodlebug while the tires ferociously screech and smoke, or 2) prompting a massive car wreck that maims or kills everyone involved, often in the most gruesome way possible.

Obviously, the latter scenario is captured in this video, filmed in Riyadh on May 25. The 2012 Camry was going 125 mph when it flipped; all four occupants died instantly.
