Video: When a Prius owner confronts a pickup driver
What happens when a Prius owner confronts a pickup driver? An argument fit for viral video, that’s what.
It must be tough being a Toyota Prius owner. You try to drive green, save on gas, and reduce your carbon footprint, only to be unfairly labelled smug, self-righteous and pretentious for your efforts.
And then the woman in this video shows up to confirm every Prius stereotype in the book.
In what can only be described as an epic confrontation fit for viral video, a woman unloads on a pickup truck driver and his family with a curse-filled tirade, scolding the driver for idling in his gas guzzler and spreading exhaust fumes.
In the video, the woman calls the driver “mindless and ignorant” for driving a pickup and idling it in the parking lot, while a Prius is seen in the background. “Is it your right to make that much pollution?” the irate woman asks.
Surprisingly, the truck driver manages to keep his cool while filming the exchange.
