A lonely Latvian grandpa has driven his car into a pool filled with 12,000 litres of Coca-Cola in a bid to become internet famous.
And boy, did it work.
The video posted to YouTube entitled ‘Angry Grandpa jumping with a car in Pool with 12000 litres of Coca Cola’ garnered nearly 850,00 views in four days giving “Angry Grandpa” his wish of becoming an online star.
“I’ve spent 8,000 euros on this… my pension a year is 2,000,” he explains as he fills his makeshift pool with cola.
“My kids been sending me money for pills, but I have decided to make a pool of coke.”
Maybe if he’d been taking the pills none of this would have happened.
Nevertheless, Angry Grandpa was determined.
Spending all night filling his pool in freezing temperatures, he arrives back the next morning with his old red Audi 80.
Careering at high speed Angry Grandpa launches his Audi across the pit and sends it crashing in a spray of bubbles and fizz into the far wall of the pool.
Sadly, the damage to his car was too much to restore the old vehicle.
However, Angry Grandpa emerged smiling, unscathed – and thus a new internet hero was born.
Social media users expressed their admiration.
“Hope this goes viral, and helps this man get his 8,000 euros back,” one quipped.
In a final endearing monologue Angry Grandpa wears his heart on his sleeve.
“I really wanted to be on YouTube, but because of you I am on TV shows, thank you all,” he says.
“These two days were really awesome in my life.”
Age is clearly just a number for this rocker.
