In a foul-mouthed case of road rage, a furious car driver went on an expletive-ridden tirade at a passing cyclist — only to find himself face down on the road by the end of it.
The video, titled “A Clown Takes a Pratfall,” was uploaded recently on YouTube. The clip sees the car driver get close to the cyclist before launching into a torrent of abuse simply because the cyclist had asked him to be more careful while driving.
“Mate, how f***ing big is that bicycle? If you’d have had the decency to go over one side instead of taking the whole f***ing road… are you a f***ing tank? No. Are you a car? No. You’re a f***ing little bicycle but you seem to want to be in the middle of the road.”
The cyclist, noticing the car driver did not have his seat-belt on, reminded him as much, to which the fuming driver responded even more vehemently.
“Put your f***ing mouth shut! You are really p***ing me off.”
According to the Mirror, the heated exchange continued even when the cyclist warned the car driver that he was on camera. The revelation seemed to anger the furious driver further, as he parked his car and got out to grab the camera.
What could probably have been the end of the feud was not to be, and the car driver drove a little distance before getting out once again to chase the cyclist on the pavement. The cyclist tried to rush away, finally managing to do so while the car driver fell face down on the pavement in an attempt to get hold of the bicycle.

So much for shouting your lungs out!
The video has already received more than 1.2 million views at the time of writing. Later, it was reported that YouTube received a privacy complaint against upfreewheeler, the cyclist who seems to have uploaded the video. It is possible the privacy complaint came from the car driver himself, but as of now, there have been no reports of confirmation. YouTube has refused to take action, citing the video does not impinge on anybody’s privacy.
This is the latest example in a string of road rage incidents that seem to have become the norm nowadays, but this cyclist managed to teach the car driver a lesson he will never forget. Not all road rage victims are so lucky.
