YouTube prankster appears in Australian court for 'scuba driving' flooded car to liquor store in viral video

Recommended Posts

A YouTube prankster who drove a car filled with water to a liquor store and bought beer during a heat wave has appeared in an Australian court to face charges related to the “scuba driving” stunt.


Michael Alexander Philippou, 28, who has operated the RackaRacka YouTube channel with his twin brother Danny, appeared in front of the Christies Beach Magistrates Court in Adelaide on Wednesday over several driving offenses.


Philippou had posted the viral video in January 2019, showing him driving a modified Ford Laser with friend Jackson O'Doherty. The two were seen wearing goggles and scuba diving regulators while driving the sedan during the heat wave.


"Our car doesn't have air conditioning so we've designed a car which can drive while full of water," one brother said in the video, which has garnered over a million views.


The suspension of the leaking sedan clearly struggled with the weight of water as it drove to a drive-in liquor store where Philippou and O'Doherty bought two bottles of beer and drank them underwater.

"... have been named influential cultural figures..."


They influence others to do the same? And their video is culture? It seems I am getting old. 

But the video is crazy and funny 🙂
