Expect to hear the name Josh Navarro in the news for the next few days. That’s because John apparently set up his smartphone across the street from Jake’s Famous Crawfish in Portland, Oregon – or perhaps had his girlfriend Sarah do the honors – pointed it towards the unsuspecting orange Lamborghini Murcielago and then hopped on his beloved BMX bike and gunned it, ringing his bike’s bell as a warning and riding full speed atop the luxury car that he used as a ramp.
The video of the Lamborghini-riding incident is going viral on Instagram, after making the popular page of Reddit videos and collecting a whole bunch of comments in the process on both mediums. As reported by the Inquisitr, when fascinating things hit Reddit, they tend to go viral quickly, such as when Edward Snowden engaged in an “Ask Me Anything” session on the link – and video – sharing site.
“My name is Josh Navarro. I ride BMX and try my best to explore new places when I can.”
In fact, the poetic way that one guy crosses the street, forcing Josh to ring his bike’s bell, coupled with the way Navarro expertly runs right over that potentially $300,000 Lamborghini Murcielago, combined with the waiter’s dumbfounded, hands-raised look almost makes one believe this could be a viral stunt from a product seller. But who would’ve commissioned such an ad? The Lamborghini Murcielago makers in an effort to garner more positive press than the recent tragedy at the Walt Disney World Speedway? It seems unlikely.
BMX bike sellers? That seems unlikely as well, because no advertiser would encourage such rebellious behavior. Indeed, perhaps Josh knows that the fame and licensing fees earned from his daring video could earn him enough to pay for any damage to the exotic car, which could run from $10,000 to $20,000 based on the extent of the injuries to the car’s hood, roof and paint job.
