  • he was approached by a Tesla driver who, out of the blue, wanted to show him where David Dobrik jumped his EV. Since this was a friendly encounter and a curious invitation.
  • he didn’t expect was to see this driver attempt a jump in that exact spot with his Tesla Model S.
  • The driver of the acrobatic Tesla violently accelerates, and the jump instantly became a very violent flying lesson.

Over the weekend, YouTuber Alex Choi attended a Tesla meeting somewhere in Los Angeles, where owners showed what modifications they made to their cars. He was then encountered with a friendly invitation to an acrobatic tesla stunt. As stated in a recent article by Autoevolution.

Encountering the jump with a friendly invitation

At one point, Choi says he was approached by a Tesla driver who, out of the blue, wanted to show him where David Dobrik jumped his EV. Since this was a friendly encounter and a curious invitation, he accepted.

 What he didn’t expect was to see this driver attempt a jump in that exact spot with his Tesla Model S.

The YouTuber even says that the driver of the flying (and now totalled) Tesla attempted this on his own, and, moreover, he’s done it without any practice or test run beforehand.

Performing the stunt and the aftermath

Naturally, a crowd gathers, and everyone starts filming. The driver of the acrobatic Tesla violently accelerates, and the jump instantly became a very violent flying lesson (about 50 feet/15 meters long, as per Choi).

The outcome, well… You can see it for yourself. The car was destroyed, and so were a bunch of trash cans. What’s sad is that other innocent owners had their cars damaged as well. Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Model S was not even in the driver’s possession, but a rental. Apparently, after he pulled the insane stunt, the driver fled the scene, and the LAPD is looking for him as it’s investigating the incident as a hit and run. At the time of writing, there’s even talk of a $1,000 reward for anyone willing to share more info on who the driver was.
