BMW M3 Owner Pulls Burnout in Gas Station, Forgets to Remove the Nozzle

Pulling burnouts in gas stations isn't exactly the smartest way of getting around, with a BMW M3 driver taking this practice to a whole new level of danger, as you'll be able to see in the clip below.

Thomas Jones, a DuPont, Washington drifter, took his 1996 modified M3 to the local Chevron for a quick meal. Upon completing the process, the man decided to roast the rear tires, but forgot to take out the nozzle before getting in his car and dumping the clutch.

While we've seen such cases before, thankfully without the tire-melting shenanigans, this was one of those rare occurrences where the gas nozzle's safety release, the one that detaches it from the pump, wasn't activated.

Instead, the nozzle flew right off the fuel filler neck, landing on the ground where the rubber marks were waiting for it.

As to why the driver of the seriously modified E36 M3 chose to play the burnout fool, there are multiple potential explanations, none of which justifies his actions.

For instance, the camera guy, who happens to be a professional videographer, admits he's "always peer pressuring Thomas to do burnouts in random places."

Well, that kind of peer pressure can only lead to trouble. With the camera massaging the ego of the driver, a crash is only a touch of the throttle away.

While we can't blame the video man for accidents, it's hard not to notice this is the same guy that caught a Ferrari F12berlinetta crash in Dubai on camera back in 2015.

His other productions include a "drifting around the Christmas tree" clip that saw a tree being set on fire on or before Christmas day, all for the sake of the camera.

If you happen to be a videographer on the path to success, try not to tear up the world around you for the sake of filming.
