Think you've experienced bad-tempered traffic jams? Spare a thought for the admittedly fictional but eternally cursed citizens of San Andreas and count yourself lucky.
Gamer Naswas was minding his own business, enjoying a ride in his car on the recently released next-gen version of GTA V on his PlayStation 4, when, utilising the added bonus of the newly added first-person mode and pulling up at an intersection, all hell broke loose. And that's putting it mildly.
“I Left my game to go get food for a few minutes - this is what happened while I was gone,” says Naswas, alluding to the ridiculous footage you can see in the video below in which a minor traffic evolves into a fiery warzone littered with screaming, fleeing bystanders, accidental hit-and-runs, explosions, shoot-outs with cops and other general melees.
And if anything warrants this video for a meme of Ron Burgundy saying 'Well that escalated quickly', just watch out for the fireman arriving on site towards the end of the carnage, running to put out a blaze only to see his firetruck blow up. His reaction says it all.
Amazingly, not only does our hero survive, but his car isn't given so much as a dent, remaining in prime position for what, in gamer geek terms, must be the equivalent of Toy Story’s Andy watching Buzz and Woody come alive and start running amok.
If we ever move to San Andreas, we’re commuting, no doubt.
