YouTuber Salomondrin Street Races On Public Roads With One Hand - Stupid?

Stupid or just a way to get views?

3y ago

Vlogging, as I'm sure you know, is a massive thing on YouTube. It covers all sorts of genres from fashion to, you guessed it, motoring. Salomondrin is one of these vloggers, with a following of almost 700,000 people on YouTube.

He started his channel revolving around his vast array of expensive and luxurious cars ranging from widebody Dodges to a Porsche 918. Since then, he's caught on to the popularity of vlogging (and the easy revenue) and has since moved his channel away from cars and more onto his everyday life.

A few days ago, Reddit scooped up a video of him being, for want of a better word, a dick. In a McLaren 720s, on a public street teaming with other cars and pedestrians, he drag raced a supercharged Lamborghini Huracan owned by another YouTuber under the name of Vehicle Virgins. Both cars reached high speeds - speeds that are certainly above the legal speed limit.

There seems to be an idea that YouTubers can push legal boundaries to get a 'good' video. This is obviously stupid, and the behaviour that is seen in this video should not be applauded.

Overall the video had a neutral reception from his followers, with only a few negative comments like the following:

So guys, what do we think? Stupid, or just a stunt to get a good video? Maybe he made enough money from that video to fund a race at a drag strip next time? Let me know in the comments below.

  • Idiots and this video should provide enough information for their insurance company to not cover them and the police take action. Assholes.

  • They went to mexico, to race.... i guess none of you crumpet-stuffing wanks know that, and besides cops cant do shit for stuff that goes down in mexico so chill with your shit. People get their house doors kicked in and beaten, raped and even killed... sorry but mexico is a 3rd world country.... there is far more serious issues going on other than a fucking street race...... what about top gear in spain? don't forget we see you doing questionable things like lying about things like writing in the script that a car broke down (Tesla Roadster......) so what makes it any different? Budget/audience? Grow the fuck up.... and seriously id rather watch Alex from CarThrottle because the Grand tour was a real fucking let down , and i'm an amazon prime subscriber.... enough with this bollox.

    You guys used to make great content but its just repetitive now and I'm quite disinterested.

    • It's spelled bollocks. Also Clarkson Hammond and May had absolutely nothing to do with the posting of this article. Nothing at all. Please take your ignorant belligerence elsewhere, there are children on here.

    • You think they actually went to Mexico? Are your parents brother and sister? Do you still believe in Santa?
