I’m glad that these dudes are trying to kill ghostriding, cuz insurance policies definitely don’t cover wreckless endangerment. Unfortunately it seems that Beeda only gave up the activity because he “keeps a thumper under the seat,” and that is not a Bambi reference. Ghostriding is not a bright idea by any stretch, but when it went from Oakland sideshows to internet squares worldwide, it really lost whatever allure it may have had. That said, it did spawn some hilarious youtube clips from a cop ghostriding while in a shoot out, to Marines in the Middle East ghostriding a MRAP tank (which resulted in them losing rank and pay! Lol).
Obviously the originator of the spoof videos though is my boy Ben and his friend Nate. The genius of their video was that they embraced their squareness by ghostriding a Volvo inching along a cul de sac, yet also gigged pretty respectably, and did it for a good cause. At the end of the day, its great that over 2 million viewers now know that Fremont is a porta-potty of a city not deserving of the Fightin’ A’s, and that square ass white dudes from the hills are hilariously down for The Town .
