If you’re anything under 20 years old chances are you might not even know what car keys were used for originally. Back in the day they did exactly what their name suggests, mechanically unlock your car’s door and then allow you to drive off.
Technology advanced and today all that’s left is a key fob that you need in your proximity when approaching your car just so that it knows it’s the owner who is trying to open it and not someone else. You don’t need a mechanical part anymore as sensors took over.

That doesn’t mean that some of us still have a certain reflex when someone tells us that we left our keys in the door, just like this video proves. The guys from the Ross Creations Youtube channel set off one day (back in 2013) to see how many people will fall for this prank. Apparently, a lot!

It’s not only that people don’t mechanically unlock their cars anymore that shocks you when looking at how many fell for it but it’s also the fact that you need your key inside the auto to drive off.

If your car has to be opened manually with a metallic key, chances are you’re also going to need that key to start the engine, right? Well then, how could you possibly be driving if that damn key is hanging from your door?

Of course, it’s easy for me to talk after watching the video but, truth be told, I’d probably check my door too if someone just drove up next to me and told me the same line. It’s still funny to watch the people’s reactions though, check it out!
